Three Common Air Conditioner Problems

Frozen Coil

If the refrigerant inside of your air conditioning unit falls below 32℉, residual humidity that is on the evaporator coil can freeze. This can happen due to lack of airflow within the unit, although low refrigerant levels, thermostat problems, and drainage problems could also be to blame. If you find that your air conditioner is not cooling your home as sufficiently as it used to, check to see if you have air flowing out of your registers. If there is minimal air coming out, you should call a local HVAC company for service.

Fan Troubles

In order for your air conditioner to properly cool your home, it relies on a process known as heat transfer. During this process, the hot air from the inside of your home is removed and replaced with cooler air. The outside fan is an integral part of this process, and if it is not working properly, then effective cooling of your home cannot occur. Even worse, if the fan is malfunctioning, the compressor inside of your air conditioner unit may overheat or suffer serious damage. If you suspect your outside fan is not operating properly, don’t delay in scheduling air conditioner repairs.

Low Refrigerant

The refrigerant is the lifeblood of your air conditioning unit, as it is responsible for cooling the air within the system. When there is not enough of it, your home cannot be efficiently cooled. If there is insufficient refrigerant in the system, many problems can occur. Ice may form on the refrigerant line and the system may kick on and off frequently, causing increased energy bills. Additionally, it may take much, much longer than normal to cool your house down. There are strict EPA regulations surrounding acceptable refrigerants for air conditioning units, and an experienced HVAC tech will be well-versed in these guidelines.
