Common Air Conditioning Problems

Posted on: July 28, 2015

Having a problem with your air conditioner? You may not be alone. Each year, thousands of homeowners are faced with air conditioners that break down when they need it most. See below for a few of the most common causes of air conditioner problems:

Refrigerant Leaks

Refrigerant is the stuff that keeps your air conditioner producing cool air. If it leaks, you may notice the temperature rising inside your home even though your air conditioner is turned on. If you have a leak, don’t try to add refrigerant yourself. Keep in mind that your system will operate at peak performance when the refrigerant level matches the manufacturer’s specification – so leave it to the pros!

Lack of Maintenance

When was the last time you cleaned the unit? When was the last time you cleaned or replaced the filter? If you don’t know the answer, now is the time. Inadequate maintenance often leads to compressor or fan failure and can leave you with a world of trouble.

Control Failure

Over time, the compressor and fan controls can wear out and the wires can corrode. Make sure your air conditioning specialist checks all electrical connections and contacts during a service call.
