Common Problems That Lead to Air Conditioning Service Posted April 27, 2017 In Abilene, there are a few common problems that lead homeowners to call 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 problems. 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. Actually, this problem often precedes compressors and fans dying prematurely. It’s crucial to always schedule your regular 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 problems, including a frozen coil. Unfortunately, you can’t fix a refrigerant leak by inserting more refrigerant. This problem needs to be handled by a specialist who can fix the leak and test it to make sure it’s fully repaired. He or she can also charge your system with the same amount of refrigerant your air conditioner’s manufacturer specifies, which will make sure that your air conditioner is working at its best. Problems with outdoor unit—Sometimes the exterior fan fails to operate as it should, which obstructs 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 need air conditioner repairs that stem from issues with their thermostat. Whether it’s a programming problem or an issue with the sensor or wiring, your technician can help.
