Contact a Vital AC HVAC professional for repair and maintenance! Some other common problems you may have are leaks in the refrigerant, poor maintenance, faulty thermostat or failure of the electric controller. This problem can be identified and fixed by a certified HVAC technician at Vital AC. Some other possible causes of a broken air conditioner are an old filter. Outdated air filters easily become clogged and restrict airflow throughout your entire unit. This decreases the system’s ability to cool the air inside your home. We highly recommend you clean or change your air filters at least four times a year (use the seasons as a reminder), or even better, once a month. Low Refrigerant, Refrigerant is what your air conditioner uses to remove heat and humidity from the air in your home. Your system can sometimes develop leaks in the refrigerant lines; meaning insufficient refrigerant circulates through the system to properly cool the air. There are also some potential warning signs, which indicate you may be leaking R22 or R410A refrigerant. For example, your A/C may blow lukewarm or hot air. You may hear a hiss or bubbling noise coming from a leak in your refrigerant line. Additionally, your refrigerant line may have ice on it. To test for leaks and diagnose the problem, there are three leak tests to consider: Electronic Leak Detector Test; Nitrogen Leak Detector Test and Bubble Test; and Dye Test Unfortunately, fixing a low refrigerant problem isn’t just replacing the refrigerant. To fully remedy the issue, an HVAC repair technician needs to find the leaks and repair the holes in the lines. This is often a time-consuming process, especially when there are multiple leaks. Blown capacitator, The capacitor stores energy and enables currents to pass through so your system can turn on and off when desired. Without a properly functioning capacitor, your entire HVAC unit cannot turn on. Capacitor failure is a more common issue, and can usually be fixed. Compressure failure, When dust, grime, and dirt build-up on your condenser coil, the air conditioner can’t expel enough heat from the system. Consequently, it forces your system to constantly run in an effort to cool your space. Many times it overheats your compressor and causes it ultimately to fail. A compressor failure often leads to a recommendation to replace. This is probably the biggest and most expensive part in your air conditioner or heat pump, and the repair is labor-intensive. Blocked Airflow, There are several reasons why your air conditioner may experience blocked airflow: Leaky Air Ducts. This is the most common cause of bad airflow. It allows air to escape and your HVAC unit works less efficiently. Clogged Air Conditioner Coil. Dust builds up on your air conditioner coil. This reduces the amount of airflow your furnace distributes. Dirty Fan Blower. When dust builds up on the fan blower it reduces its efficiency. This prevents proper air distribution throughout your home. Broken Air Ducts. Disconnected or crushed air ducts also cause bad airflow because air cannot properly circulate throughout your home. Incorrectly-Sized Heating and Cooling System. The size of your air conditioning system should be determined prior to installation. If the system is undersized or oversized, you may experience airflow issues. You may also experience short cycling and strain on your equipment. Frozen air conditioning, Your evaporator coil, located inside the blower cabinet, may freeze and prevent your air conditioner from working properly. This coil sucks hot air from inside your home and moves it outside. If your refrigerant levels are low, the evaporator coil can’t gather enough hot air to cool your house. Over time, moisture collects around the coil and freezes. This prevents the refrigerant from flowing freely throughout your system. Sadly, homeowners cannot do much to repair a frozen air conditioning unit. We strongly recommend turning your AC unit off, and calling an HVAC technician is the answer. Our goal is to fix your Air condition properly and efficiently the first time to prevent future issues.
