We’ve pulled them together for you, so you know what to search for and what could be instigating the problems. Lack of maintenance—If you’ve neglected to schedule routine air conditioner service, you could end up paying for it in preventable repairs. Your air conditioner can’t run properly if its filters and coils become blocked up with dirt and debris. Actually, this problem often leads to compressors and fans failing prematurely. It’s crucial to always setup your annual air conditioner service with Farnell Mechanical, Inc. and take a look at your air filters to avoid this problem. Leaking refrigerant—Leaking refrigerant can cause several problems, including a frozen coil. Unfortunately, you can’t fix a refrigerant leak by adding more refrigerant. This problem needs to be handled by a specialist who can mend the leak and check to make sure it’s fully repaired. He or she can also charge your system with the exact amount of refrigerant your air conditioner’s manufacturer identifies, which will guarantee that your air conditioner is operating at its best. Problems with outdoor unit—Sometimes the outside fan fails to work correctly, which impedes heat transfer and can prompt your air conditioner to overheat and even damage the compressor. If the entire outdoor unit fails to work, you could have a problem with wiring or your thermostat. Thermostat issues—It’s not unusual for homeowners to require air conditioner repairs that stem from problems with their thermostat.
