Air conditioners are used for about 8 hours almost every day which makes this unit an easy target the natural course of product wear and tear and it is not difficult to know if there is something wrong that is going on with our air conditioners. To prevent total AC unit failure, early signs should be observed in order to facilitate singapore aircon repair. Here are some tips in knowing your aircon repair services.

Weak air flow

Air conditioners originally generate strong air flowing out of the vents. There is no point in having an AC in your house if there is no cold air exiting through the vents. Weakness in airflow may be attributed to a clogged duct or a breaking down compressor. In the span of using your AC unit, dirt, dust, and other materials may have already fallen into the vents causing the said clog.

Air has become warm

This is the most unpleasant and mood-busting feeling during summertime when the sun shines so hot that you just don’t want to go out of your house but stay inside and turn the AC on, wait for it to generate cool air however, there is no cool air generated but rather a warm air. When warm air is what is generated from the vents, there is a low level to zero level refrigerants present inside the compressor.

Strange noises

The AC unit is originally designed as a non-sound making appliance to provide relaxation and comfort to its users. With this said, when an AC starts to produce sounds that includes grating and grinding sounds, it is an indication that there is something wrong in your compressor as it is already struggling to or starting hard to be able to power on. In an instance that a ticking or a chattering sound comes after turning the AC on, then there must be something wrong on the electrical relay switch.

Unpleasant odors

Air conditioners should be generating crisp cool air that are not smelly. So when there is an unpleasant odor coming from the vent such as a burning smell or a musty odor, then it is best to call an AC professional immediately. The presence of a musty odor indicates the growth of mold in the ductwork and the burning smell indicates the burning out of wire insulations on the engine.

Leakage or moisture

There should not be any leakage or moisture in anywhere on your AC unit. A leakage or moisture is an indicator that portions of refrigerants are coming out. Refrigerants are dangerous to the health of your loved ones and pets. So when leakages or moistures are noticed, call for AC professionals immediately.

When the signs above are noticed, then it calls for immediate help from an AC Repair Service Provider. Repairing AC units before total unit failure will allow you to save money.

Your Ultimate Guide in Fixing AC water leaks

It had always been summer in Singapore even if December is approaching. Although it is necessary that you keep regular check-ups to your AC system, a little handy repair for minor problems would save you a lot of money and one of repair you can handle on your own is the water leaks on your AC. When you noticed a leak in the indoor air handler of the air conditioner, turn it off before the worse problem arise and either you call for air conditioning experts or follow the methods below.

Troubleshooting guide for water leaks in Air conditioner:

  • Clog air filters is one of the reasons why there is a leak in the air conditioner. If it is poorly maintained and often dirty, chances are the air is being impeded and could not get a thorough pass to the evaporator. This will result freezing in its coils because the refrigerant could not get a good access to a passage in order to sip the warm air. When it is freezing it cannot take the heat anymore and that is the reason why you see water leaks in the indoor handler. Clean the air filters or ensure that you replace it every 1 to 3 months. Remember, the more hot day’s means the shorter span of time that you need to replace or clean the filters. If cleaning and replacing the filters does not fix the leaks, then it is about time you call for air conditioning service.
  • According to Billy Aircon, Another reason for the leaking of air conditioning is when the drain pan had a burst, tear, hole or overflow.  It is situated underneath the indoor air handler which may cause the water leaks. For hole or tear that might have caused by small insect bites, you can seal it with the use of water sealant but if the damage is big you better replace it. But bear in mind that there are two drain pan in an air conditioner; underneath the evaporator coil which is the permanent drain pan and underneath the unit which is removable. If the damage is in the removable drain pan, then it is easier for you to replace it but with the permanent drain pan, call the air conditioning services.

  • The clog in drain line can also result in water leaking in the air conditioner. If you have the wet-dry vacuum, then you can remove the clog otherwise, call for professional help. If you choose to get rid of the clog on your own then you need you check the drain pipe and remove the cap. Pour fruit enzymes or vinegar to clear the line. To prevent the drain line from clogging, cleaning the drain pipes must be included in your routine to prevent the build-up of algae and molds inside the pipe. While there is the latest model of air conditioning unit today that automatically shuts off the AC when there is clog and enables you to detect the cause of leaking fast. If this is not the type of air conditioning you owned then do the manual checkups in order to troubleshoot the problem or call the help of the air conditioning expert.

What We Do

As the sun rises above the Black Mesa in a fireball of orange, an elderly Navajo matriarch greets the warmth of the rays and the beauty of the new day. Soon she will herd her sheep and goats to a reclaimed pasture just over the hill, though first she must finish shearing. It’s difficult work, yet a routine that is steeped in tradition. Peabody operates as a guest on ancient Navajo and Hopi lands in Northeastern Arizona, where the Black Mesa and Kayenta mines annually produce about 13 million tons of coal that helps fuel low-cost electricity for the Southwest.

It still remains a little known fact that there is a working salt mine here in Arizona. The Morton Salt, Glendale Facility is located outside of Phoenix and beneath the ground in every direction of the facility lies a vast salt deposit known as the Luke Salt Body. The salt deposit is estimated to contain at least 15 cubic miles of salt. Salt production at the Glendale facility began in 1969 by the Southwest Salt Company. Morton Salt purchased the facility from Southwest Salt in 1985. When visiting the Glendale facility, don’t expect to see a mine shaft protruding upwards from the ground. Solar Salt is produced at Glendale using the solution mining method. Two active brine wells were drilled 3,600 feet below ground level.

Our Little History

The Arizona Mining Association was established in 1965, as a non-profit business league. Our mission is to acquire and disseminate educational, business and scientific information that is essential to the formation of sound public policies affecting the Arizona mining industry. The mining industry plays a critical role not only in our state and nation, but also in the world. This website, as well as a variety of other services and resources, is offered to provide information about mining and its important contribution to our lives.

The Arizona Mining Association has made a number of great educational resources about the mining industry in Arizona available for free on our site. Copper mining has been contributing to the economy of what is now called Arizona since before the arrival of Europeans in the 16th Century. Beginning in the late 19th Century, copper mining and processing became one of the primary means by which first the Arizona Territory and then the State of Arizona were transformed from a wilderness to a modern industrial economy. Copper mining, smelting, refining, and fabricating remain an important part of that economy today.
