3 Common Causes Of AC Problems

  • Low Refrigerant

To remove the heat and humidity from the air in your home or business, your AC uses this called the refrigerant. If the refrigerant has leaks, it can not cool the air effectively. To fix this ac problem, the technician needs to find the leaks and repair the holes in the lines. This can be time-consuming and expensive, especially when there are multiple leaks, so we recommend to prevent this issue by checking on the AC once in a while. 

  • Dirty Condenser Coils

Condenser coils get rid of the heat removed from the air by expelling it outside the building. This covers the condenser coil with a layer of dirt and grime, and when this happens, heat transfer is impeded, and your unit has to work more do its job, wearing down the parts and even damaging the system. 

  • Fan Problems

There are two fans: one that blows indoor air over your unit’s evaporator coil to cool the air, and another that blows air over the outdoor unit’s condenser to expel the absorbed heat outside the building. If these fans aren’t working properly, you’ll end up with AC problems. And you can not let it pass because if it affects the compressor, it is a death sentence for your AC.

None of these problems can be ignored because it will always lead to deteriorating the AC. Sometimes, depending on the problem, it’s better for you to install a new AC because it’ll be the same cost of repairing it. In other cases, we suggest to give it maintenance before the HVAC system problem gets worse.
