Common Air Conditioner Repairs
As the heat is rising in your home, you might be wondering: how bad is it? Here are some of the more common problems we see in LA:
Refrigerant Leak – Your air conditioner uses a chemical refrigerant in order to cool air in your house. The refrigerant is contained in pipes that connect indoor and outdoor equipment. A leak somewhere in the system can cause the air conditioner not to cool as effectively. The best solution is to find the leak, seal it, and then add refrigerant back to proper levels.
Drainage Problems – Have you ever noticed the condensation that forms on the outside of a cold water glass? Air conditioning coils get very cold and also produce condensate. Air conditioners are designed with drain pans and piping to help the condensate flow away. But if there’s a clog somewhere in your system, it can cause all sorts of problems. For example, you might experience very high humidity levels, or, if your drain pan is full, your AC may not turn on at all.
Broken Condenser Fan – the big metal box outside your home is called the condensing unit. The condensing unit houses a compressor, coils, and one or more fans. All of these components are integral to the operation of your air conditioner. Specifically, the outdoor fan helps cool the refrigerant and push hot air away from the unit. If it’s not operating, your system will struggle to perform. The root of the problem could be any number of things, from a motor problem to bent blades.
Compressor Issues – Perhaps the most feared by homeowners, a compressor problem is one of the most complex repairs. The compressor is the most critical part of your air conditioner. Without it, nothing else in the system works properly. It is a sophisticated device, so if there is an issue with your compressor, there are many potential causes. Compressors are also the most expensive component of any air conditioning system. So if you’re facing a compressor replacement, you might consider replacing the air conditioner instead.
