Common Air Conditioning Issues & Repair

Capacitor Needs Replaced   

It’s disheartening when your air conditioning system suddenly stops working, and the thermostat is blank. If nothing is turning or blowing, there is a good chance your capacitor is bad. Capacitors help the electric motors in your air-conditioning system start and run. Specifically, they boost energy during the starting phase to get the motors up to speed. Unfortunately, over time capacitors weaken, and eventually, if they are not replaced, they will “blow,” which renders them useless and can sometimes cause other issues inside the unit.

Low Refrigerant In Your Air Conditioning System

If the refrigerant is too low, the system will struggle to keep up, it may freeze, and it will ultimately not cool your house efficiently or at all.
The lowest refrigerant is a slow leak, so the symptoms become more and more pronounced if you pay attention. You may notice your air-conditioning running longer and longer and the temperature you have set harder and harder to achieve.
Adding more refrigerant to bring your system back to cooling properly is relatively easy; the problem is that your system is low on refrigerant. It may be a slow leak, but the refrigerant is escaping somehow. Usually, this occurs in the evaporator coil. If the leak is significant enough, it may be advisable to replace the entire system (if it’s old enough) or replace the evaporator coil.

Clogged Condensate Drain Line

A clogged condensate drain line is a common problem that can lead to severe issues in your air conditioning system. When the line becomes clogged, the condensation produced by the system cannot properly escape, causing buildup and eventually an overflow of water. This often causes a great deal of damage to the ceiling, walls, and insulation surrounding the equipment and creates an unbalanced temperature within your home. In addition, if left unaddressed, a clogged condensate drain line can cause further problems, such as breakdowns in mechanical parts and poor air quality from mold or mildew buildup. Therefore, it’s essential to address this problem quickly and efficiently with professional help to ensure a safe and comfortable living space for you and your family.

Safety Switch

A safety switch with HVAC is invaluable for maintaining the safety and integrity of any heating, ventilation, and air conditioning unit. This switch helps to monitor things like voltage drop and overlapping, so if something unusual is detected, it will automatically cut off power to the HVAC unit before any damage or other issues can occur. In addition to being incredibly effective in protecting the unit itself, a safety switch also provides users with peace of mind knowing that their system is safe and secure. Knowing that your HVAC’s performance is being monitored and potential threats are being averted can go a long way toward saving money on necessary repairs in the long run.
