Possible A/C Issues
The refrigerant is the necessary element that your air conditioner uses to remove the heat and humidity from the air in your home. Without the right amount of refrigerant, you air conditioner won’t run well and will work harder to cool your home. You may need a top up of refrigerant or you may need to repair a refrigerant line leak. If your system doesn’t seem to be cooling your home like it used to, give us a call and we’ll do a full service to ensure your air conditioning unit is running as it should and without leaks.
Your cooling unit has a fan 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 either of those fans isn’t working properly– due to a faulty motor, lack of lubrication, worn belts or too much dirt and debris– you end up with poor airflow and air conditioner problems. Never neglect a fan issue as this can cause catastrophic failures and may require a full replacement of your air conditioner
All the moisture that your air conditioner removes from the air has to go somewhere. When the system is working correctly, this moisture is removed through a drain line which leads down a drain. If the line or drain gets clogged, the water can back up and damage your system. You can also wind up with more severe water leaks that could damage your home and belongings. Mold growth is also a concern when excessive moisture is involved.
Your unit’s condenser coils gets rid of the heat removed from the air by expelling it outside the building. The condenser coil won’t work well when it gets covered with a layer of dirt, grime or leaves. When it happens, heat transfer is impeded, and your unit has to work harder to do its job, leading increased wear on the parts and even system failure. Always inspect your air conditioning unit thoroughly before needing it during hot summer days. This will ensure you have time to clean and service it before you really need it.
