A Guide to Common Air Conditioning Problems Requiring Air Conditioning Repair:
Although there are many different reasons why your home's central air conditioning unit may need the attention of a qualified AC repair specialist, there are some common air conditioning problems that happen much more frequently than others. Knowing a bit about these problems can help you to understand what's happening with your air conditioning system, plus it can help you to understand what our technicians are talking about when it comes to discussing options for air conditioner repair.
Low Refrigerant - Refrigerant is the chemical your air conditioning unit uses to cool incoming air for distribution throughout your home. If your air conditioning system is experiencing a problem with low refrigerant, the problem could be caused by a leak, or there could be some other problem within the refrigerant system itself. While AC repair specialists can recharge air conditioning refrigerant, you'll find that unless leaks are diagnosed and repaired, your air conditioning system will work less efficiently than it should.
Faulty Wiring - If your air conditioner comes on and the circuit breaker trips, you could have a problem with faulty AC wiring. This is a serious problem, as it presents a potential fire hazard; in addition, faulty wiring prevents your air conditioning system from working properly. If you suspect faulty wiring, call right away.
Outside Fan Not Working - The air conditioner's outside fan transfers the hot air from inside your home to the unit's exterior as cool air is exchanged. If the outside fan is not working properly, then your air conditioner's compressor may overheat, causing the safety overload to trip. In a worst case scenario, this common air conditioning problem can cause internal damage to the compressor.
Frozen Inside Coil - When the coil inside your air conditioning unit freezes, a problem with internal air flow is usually indicated, although sometimes frozen air conditioner coils can be the result of low refrigerant. Often though, air conditioning repair technicians find that the problem is caused by either a blockage in the return air ductwork, or by dirty air filters inside the air conditioning unit.
If you are experiencing a problem with reduced cool air output, or if it has been some time since you last had your air conditioning unit maintained or inspected, schedule an AC repair inspection as soon as possible. You'll reap the rewards of increased air flow, greater home comfort, and improved energy savings.
