Common Problems That Lead to Air Conditioning Service Posted April 27, 2017 In Abilene, there are a few common problems that lead homeowners to request Abilene Air-Tech Inc for air conditioning service. We’ve collected them together for you, so you know what to watch for and what could be instigating the issues. Lack of maintenance—If you’ve neglected to schedule annual air conditioner service, you could end up paying for it in unnecessary repairs. Your air conditioner can’t operate correctly if its filters and coils become clogged up with dirt and debris. In fact, this problem often precedes compressors and fans dying prematurely. It’s important to always schedule your annual air conditioner service with Abilene Air-Tech Inc and take a look at your air filters to prevent 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 inserting more refrigerant. This problem needs to be handled by a specialist who can repair the leak and test it to make sure it’s truly repaired. He or she can also charge your system with the same 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 exterior fan fails to work as it should, which impedes heat transfer and can instigate your air conditioner to overheat and even impair the compressor. If the full outdoor unit stops working, you could have a difficulty with wiring or your thermostat. Thermostat issues—It’s pretty standard for homeowners to require air conditioner repairs that arise from problems with their thermostat. Whether it’s a programming problem or an issue with the sensor or wiring, your technician can help.
