Common Problems That Lead to Air Conditioning Service Posted April 27, 2017 In Tucson, there are a few common problems that bring homeowners to ask Ambient Air for air conditioning service. We’ve gathered them together for you, so you know what to search for and what could be causing the issues. Lack of maintenance—If you’ve failed to remember to schedule annual air conditioner service, you could have to be paying for it in avoidable repairs. Your air conditioner can’t work properly if its filters and coils become blocked up with dirt and debris. In reality, this problem often comes before compressors and fans breaking down prematurely. It’s critical to always setup your regular air conditioner service with Ambient Air and inspect your air filters to avert this problem. Leaking refrigerant—Leaking refrigerant can cause a number of issues, including a frozen coil. Sadly, you can’t fix a refrigerant leak by increasing refrigerant. This problem needs to be controlled by a specialist who can fix the leak and test it to make sure it’s truly mended. He or she can also charge your system with the exact amount of refrigerant your air conditioner’s manufacturer identifies, which will make sure that your air conditioner is working at its best. Problems with outdoor unit—Sometimes the outside fan fails to run as it should, which obstructs heat transfer and can instigate your air conditioner to overheat and even damage the compressor. If the entire outdoor unit stops working, you could have a problem with wiring or your thermostat. Thermostat issues—It’s pretty standard for homeowners to need air conditioner repairs that stem from trouble with their thermostat. Whether it’s a programming problem or an issue with the sensor or wiring, your professional can help.
