Common Problems That Lead to Air Conditioning Service Posted April 27, 2017 In Delray Beach, there are a few shared problems that bring homeowners to call Kilbourne Heating & AC for air conditioning service. We’ve pulled them together for you, so you know what to watch for and what could be causing the difficulties. Lack of maintenance—If you’ve forgotten to schedule routine air conditioner service, you could have to be paying for it in avoidable repairs. Your air conditioner can’t work correctly if its filters and coils become blocked up with dirt and debris. In reality, this problem often precedes compressors and fans breaking down prematurely. It’s important to always schedule your regular air conditioner service with Kilbourne Heating & AC and inspect your air filters to prevent this problem. Leaking refrigerant—Leaking refrigerant can cause a few different problems, including a frozen coil. Unfortunately, you can’t repair a refrigerant leak by inserting more refrigerant. This problem needs to be handled by a specialist who can fix the leak and check to make sure it’s accurately repaired. He or she can also charge your system with the precise amount of refrigerant your air conditioner’s manufacturer stipulates, which will make sure that your air conditioner is operating at its best. Problems with outdoor unit—Sometimes the external fan fails to run as it should, which impedes heat transfer and can instigate your air conditioner to overheat and even damage the compressor. If the full outdoor unit shuts down, you could have a problem with wiring or your thermostat. Thermostat issues—It’s common 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 specialist can help.
