Air conditioning control

Why is the air-conditioning operating but there isn't any cold air (air-con not cool)?

The air-conditioning system basically comprises of two sections- the indoor fancoil and the outdoor condenser. The indoor fancoil simply acts as a blower to dissipate the cooling generated by the outdoor condenser. If there is no cool air blowing out from the indoor fancoil, the outdoor condenser might not be working. A qualified technician is needed to troubleshoot on the outdoor condenser.

Why is the air-conditioning leaking water?

A normal air-conditioner will have water condensate in the indoor fancoil and discharge through a draining pipe to the nearest drain. Water will start to leak when the drainage piping is clogged / choked. Should no gravity drain be possible a pump might have been installed to assist in the removal of the condensate. This might have failed. A qualified technician is needed.

Why is the room not cold enough even after the air-conditioning has been running for few hours?

There are a number of possible explanations for this fault. Reason 1: The indoor fancoil is dirty resulting in weak dissipation of cool air. Reason 2: The outdoor condenser is dirty making it incapable of producing cooling refrigerant. Reason 3: There may not be enough refrigerant in the air-conditioning system. Reason 4: There might be some problem with the air-conditioning system resulting in non-continuous operation of the system. Reason 5: The desired operating temperature is set too high. Reason 6: The air-conditioner installed is under-sized.

Why is the air-conditioning not working?

One common reason is that the electrical power is not supplied to the air-conditioner. Perform an initial check on your electrical panel making sure that the electrical supply to the air-conditioner has not tripped. Upon confirmation of the availability of electrical supply, a qualified technician should be engaged to have the air-conditioner repaired.

What is the advantage of regular air-conditioning service?

Regular service of your air conditioning equipments will provide the following benefits: Benefit 1: The air-conditioner will cool better. Benefit 2: The electrical consumption of the air-conditioning equipments will be lower. Benefit 3: Air-con leaking will be minimised. Benefit 4: There will be less need for air-con repair. Benefit 5: The air-con equipment lifespan will be prolonged

How often should I have the air-con serviced?

In general, it is recommended that a residential air-conditioner is to be serviced and checked every 6/12 months and every 4/6 month for commercial air-conditioners. The duration varies with different usage patterns and other environmental factors. Please seek the assessment of a qualified technician.

Can I do my own air-conditioning maintenance?

The basic maintenance that is recommended is the cleaning of the air filter and outer panel of the air conditioner every two weeks. This will helps to improve the air conditioning of the room.

Why is the air-conditioning noisy?

Noise is normally generated from: a. Vibration noise resulting from dirty indoorfancoil/ outdoor condenser. b. Noisy draft resulting from dirty indoorfancoil. c. Loose mounting of component in the air-conditioning system. d. Faulty parts in the air-conditioning system

Why is the air-conditioning smelly?

The smell comes from bacteria formed by microbes in the warm dark humid environment in the indoor fancoil unit. Sometimes when the smell is very bad you may need a more intensive chemical treatment to rectify this problem.

Why does the air-conditioning needs chemical cleaning / chemical washing?

Chemical overhaul/cleaning is a very thorough way of cleaning the air-conditioner. When an air-conditioner is badly clogged/ choked and a general service can't improve the condition, an overhaul is necessary. In an overhaul, the air-conditioner is dismantled part by part and chemically washed.

Why must the fancoil unit be dismantled for chemical cleaning / chemical washing instead of just cleaning the drip tray?

By dismantling the fan coil unit, the air-conditioning's individual components can be washed thoroughly. This will help better clean the unit and also not leave behind chemical residue that may lead to the corrosion of the fan coil.

What should be done if there is a refrigerant leakage problem?

If your air-conditioning system has a refrigerant leak problem, simply adding of refrigerant (R22 / R410) is not a solution. A trained technician should perform a oxygen pressure test to trace and repair the leak. Upon completion of leakage repair, a correct amount of refrigerant should be topped up.

Do we need to service the Condenser (outdoors) ?If, yes, how often?

You need to service the condenser (outdoor air-conditioning unit) at least once a year to make sure the air circulation of the unit is not blocked. It can affect the cooling efficiency, a shorter compressor life and higher electrical consumption. Sometimes, it is subjected to environmental conditions, which require a qualified technician to give recommendations.

Why does ice form on the copper pipes of the condenser (outdoor) ?

There are three possibilities. Ice forming on the discharged pipe is due to insufficient gas in the system. Ice formation on the suction pipe could be caused by a dirty fancoil unit or, a dirty filter or, the indoor unit blower is not rotating. You could also have a stuck electrical relay, causing the unit to constantly run. Call a service technician

Why is the air-conditioning switching OFF by itself and the air-con indicator light blinking / flashing ?

The blinking / flashing of indicator light indicate that there is a fault with the air conditioning system. Hence the air conditioner switches off by itself. A qualified technician is needed to diagnose and repair the fault. As this is a protective function to prevent the air conditioner from further damage, it is not advisable to do a electrical power reset to get the aircon temporary working. Continue operation might further damage the air conditioning system.

Why does the air-conditioning switch ON and OFF by itself ?

There is a fault with the indoor electronic circuit board. The circuit board controls the operation of the indoor fancoil and damage caused it to loose its operational control. A repair or replacement of the circuit board is necessary.

Why can't the air-conditioner unit be switched ON using the remote control ?

The fault might lie in the remote controller or the indoor printed circuit board. Try the remote controller on the other fancoil and if it works, your remote controller is fine. If the fault lies in the printed circuit board, you need to engage a qualified technician to do a repair on the printed circuit board.

What is pressure testing of an air-conditioning system and why it is needed?

When the refrigerant gas in an air-conditioning system depletes away and the air-conditioner needs refrigerant gas, we can suspect that there is a refrigerant leakage in the air-conditioning system. Pressure testing work will help to identify where the leak has occured. Normally high pressure is induced into the condenser, fancoil and refrigerant piping to identify where the leakage is. Further repair work will be quoted upon identifying the leakage area. Note: Pressure testing work is a testing process (not repair work) to identify the leakage area. This work will not be able to rectify the fault but it's a necessary process to define the scope of repair from the result of the work.

What should I consider when choosing an air-conditioner for my premise?

The following are some factors you should consider when choosing an air-conditioning system. Determine the size of the area for which the air-conditioner is require to cool. Determine the cooling capacity required (refer to question 2 under this section). Determine the brands and types of air-conditioner you prefer. Work out and compare your budget.

How to determine the cooling capacity require for a room?
