Most Common Air Conditioning Repairs

air conditioning repairAmerican Air advises homeowners to understand simple components of air conditioning repairs so their units will work effectively. The most common AC problems are:

  • Leaky Ducts or Refrigerant Seepage

If an air conditioner is not properly charged during installation, it will leak or will have a low refrigerant. Adding refrigerant will not resolve the leak. Look for a qualified technician to repair the leak, test the repair and then charge the correct refrigerant to the system. If the refrigerant is set based on the manufacturer’s specifications, your AC will work efficiently and will not be overcharged or undercharged. Refrigerant leaks are dangerous to the environment, to ensure that your AC does not have any leakage.

  • Inefficient Maintenance

Dirty air conditioning coils and filters will prevent the AC to perform and work efficiently. It can also result in early damage to the fans or compressor. Always hire the services of a qualified AC service technician. Failure to do so can aggravate the existing AC problems.

  • Deficient Electric Control

Frequent turning on and off of the AC could lead to the early deterioration of the compressor and fan controls. The same thing will happen with a large AC unit. Make sure to have your electrical connections and contacts checked by a qualified technician to avoid the corrosion of your system’s wire and terminals.

  • Sensor Issues

The thermostat sensor is a feature of most portable air conditioners. Located behind the control panel, it measures the temperature of air emanating from the evaporative coil. The AC could behave unsteadily or cycle continually if the sensor is mispositioned. The correct position of the sensor is near the coil. To adjust its position, carefully bend the wire that keeps it in place.

  • Drainage Issues

Always check the condensation drain when it is humid outside to ensure that it is not blocked and that it is draining properly. Mount window air conditioners levelly or steadily so they will drain properly.
