What Furnace or AC Service Can We Help You With?

Common AC Repair Problems

1. AC Refrigerant Is Low

low ac refrigerant

Refrigerant is responsible for transferring the heat inside your home to the exterior. This is where the hot air blows out of your AC over the coils. Without refrigerant, there will be no air conditioning. If you have a leak in your system, the refrigerant will slowing leak out and your system will not blow cool air. Our ac techs can detect leaks and stop them. We can also “charge your air conditioning unit” and refill if necessary.

2. Overly Dirty Coil

Your evaporator coil is indoors and your condenser coil is outdoors. Both of these coils need to be cleaned over time and play a major factor in the efficiency of your HVAC system. With these becoming soiled over time they impact the ability of your air conditioner to cool your home.

3. Faulty or Bad Blower Motor

Your blower motor is actually for both your furnace and air conditioning units. This blows the air throughout the duct work and circulates it in the home. If your blower motor dies it can potentially freeze up your AC causing additional problems.

4. Dirty Filters

Dirty air filters are one of the most common causes for issues with you heating and cooling system. These need changed regularly per you manufacture instructions. Some recommend different times you need to change. We recommend changing every 3-4 months depending on the type of traffic in your home. Dirty filters clog the air flow for the system and can cause unwanted additional damage to your system.

5. Faulty or Dead Compressor

The compressor is located inside of your air conditioner. It circulates the refrigerant throughout the system. If your compressor dies, you may be better off replacing your entire unit when it comes to a financial situation. Compressors are a more expensive of a repair and replacement. We will guide you on the best decision depending on the age of your unit and amount of repair.

6. Faulty or Dead Contactor

air conditioner contactor

The electric current for your unit is produced by the contactor. They can go out but also can be interrupted by things like mice, bugs, or other vermin to keep if from functioning properly. We recommend having these inspected yearly and we do so in our tune-ups. We also recommend our service agreements you can purchase to have us check these yearly at a discounted rate.

7. Bad Capacitor

A capacitor assists in the start up of your ac unit since that is the time it requires the most energy to get going. It goes hand and hand with the contactor and helps reduce unneeded wear and tear on the unit. If your unit is trying to start up but unable to complete the task, you may have a bad capacitor.

These are only a hand full of issues that you may run into. There are many more but the list could go on and on. However, these are some of the most common.
