Common Air Conditioner Repairs

An air conditioning unit is a mechanical system, and problems may arise with any of its system components, especially if the unit is correctly cared for. Some of the most common air conditioner repairs are provided below:

  • Refrigerant problems like a leak for poor charge
  • Drainage problems like obstructions in the condensate drain line.
  • Defective compressor fan
  • Iced condenser or evaporator coils

Check Before Calling For Emergency Air Conditioner Repair

Check the settings of your thermostat – the thermostat must be set to cooling and the temperature should be set a few degrees lower than the current temperature of the house to start a cooling cycle. Be sure that the hold or vacation setting has not been started accidentally to stop the operation of your air conditioning system.

Check the power – be sure that your thermostat has power and your cooling unit as well. Change the batteries in the thermostat when needed. Make sure that the power switch of the air handler has not been switched off and the power switches to the outdoor unit, if needed. You should also check the electrical panel to make sure that the breakers of the circuit that supplies power to the cooling system aren’t tripped or that the fuses are in good shape.

Inspect the air filter – A filter that has become obstructed with contaminants can prevent the air flow, restricting cool air from getting into your house. It could also lead to the coils of the cooling system to freeze up, restricting performance. In case the filter is filthy, get a new one or clean it if what you have is reusable. Be sure to check the directions set by the manufacturer.

In case these trouble shooting steps fail to fix the problem, shut down your unit. You will only cause further damage if you continue to run it. Wait for an air conditioner repair in Myrtle Beach expert from DuctWorks Heating and Cooling to come to your home to diagnose and repair your unit before using it again.
