Common Types of A/C Repairs

Don’t let an old A/C roast you this summer! If you’re having problems with your air conditioning system, it may be experiencing one of the common home A/C repair issues below. In any case, our team of NATE-certified professionals are always standing by.

Refrigerant Leak

Air conditioners use refrigerant, which enables the system to run efficiently, releasing heat from the air to cool it. They are charged with refrigerant upon installation. Nevertheless, a poor charge or a refrigerant leak can cause the system’s refrigerant level to drop below the proper amount needed. To fix this,we can recharge your refrigerant, which should only be done by a professional, accompanied by repairing the leak that caused it to begin with.

Broken Compressor Fan

Your home cooling system’s outside unit houses your fan, compressor and condenser coils. These essential parts work to release heat from the air, transferring it out of your home to produce a cool indoor climate inside. If the outdoor fan isn’t working properly, the heat transfer process is inhibited. This prevents your AC from adequately cooling your residence, while a broken fan can cause the unit’s compressor to overheat. An overheated compressor could trip the air conditioner’s safety features, causing your air conditioner to shut down. Additionally, overheating can also damage the compressor itself, which is an expensive part, requiring an A/C repair or compressor replacement.

Frozen Condenser Coils

You can reduce energy costs and prevent damage to your expensive furnace by addressing issues of “short cycling.” This is important because in very cold weather, this constant turning off and on might be normal and necessary to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. However, it could also be a sign of a bigger underlying problem with your furnace. Possible causes include a dirty air filter, or a faulty thermostat, or a blocked exhaust vent.

Drainage Issues

An air conditioner’s cooling process causes condensation, which usually flows away from the equipment. However, if there is a clog in the drip pan or condensate drain lines, or if outdoor humidity levels are high, moisture may back up into your air conditioning equipment. Excess condensation will increase indoor humidity levels and affect the air conditioner’s performance negatively. It can also cause damage to your unit’s various components.

To fix this, we inspect the drip pan and all condensate lines. The lines will be cleared of clogs, and may be treated for algae growth to prevent future clogs. If the AC’s components have been damaged, we show you and offer you an estimate to repair the damaged equipment.

Should I replace my A/C, or repair?

If you’re not sure whether to replace your air conditioning system or go ahead and pay for the repairs, we outline below the top factors you should consider in making this sometimes challenging decision:

Air Conditioner Age

When an A/C gets older than 10 years old, it might be time to begin planning for replacement. Having said that, it’s obvious there are more factors than just age but this can be a good guide to whether you should start considering something new or not.

Factors you should consider with the unit’s age include the equipment’s reliability, it’s history and efficiency, and how well it has been maintained over the years.

Energy Efficiency

Often, home cooling systems that are more than 10 years old are outdated in terms of energy efficiency, so your current A/C could be costing more on your utility bills. For help determining how much you can save, give us a call!

Cost of Repairs

This is generally the main factor when looking for something new. A lot of experts recommend a new furnace and new air conditioner if the repair is more than $800. But, if the system is only 6 years old, $800 doesn’t seem that bad of an investment to squeeze a few more years of life out of your system. With this in mind, it’s good to look at both the age and the cost of the repair. If the home cooling system is more than 10 years old and it’s going to cost more than $800 to repair you should take a serious look at replacing the unit.

There’s also the 50 Percent Rule: When the cost of repairs approaches 50 percent of the value of the unit, it’s usually time to replace the system.
