When your air conditioning does not turn on or you hear a weird sound while it was running, the best way to save your machine from any more damage is by having it repaired. Repairing your air conditioner is a cost-effective process, because replacing your unit for a brand new one is more expensive and puts your old, yet working, air conditioning unit to waste.
We are proud to carry exceptional products, by such brands as Amana and Lennox, for your home air conditioning repair needs.
What causes my AC to break?
Knowing the problem of your unit’s failure will make it much easier and faster to repair. Here is a list of the most common AC unit malfunctions or damages, which will surely aid you once you or a repairman begin fixing the machine.
Leaks in the Refrigerant
It’s usually caused by undercharging during installation or leaks. If you are experiencing the latter, do not try to fix it yourself. Contact a trained technician to have it fixed.
It is important to keep all your appliances, systems, and units, checked. Irregular check-ups often lead to dust and dirt buildup; which can clog the unit’s fans, thus reducing the functionality of your unit. Cleaning it from time to time will remedy the situation.
Electric Control Failure
Turning your unit on and off can wear out its compressor and fan controls. Because of this, the wires and terminals within your AC begin to corrode. You should contact professional air conditioning services to fix this problem.
This sensor is located behind the unit’s control panel. What this system does is measure the temperature of air coming into the evaporator coil. If this system is damaged or removed from your AC, the machine could be cycling constantly or behaving erratically.
This problem usually occurs when it becomes humid outside. Always check the condensate drain to make sure it isn’t clogged.
