Home Air Conditioning Common Problems

Home Air Conditioning Common Problems

home ac common problems

In order for your home HVAC to function efficiently, you need to regular maintenance on the filters, evaporator and condenser coils. Neglecting this can cause low performance, higher electric bills and shorter life expectancy.

Some common problems with home air conditioners are from improper installation and no annual maintenance checkup. Unqualified AC technicians sometimes fail to find Freon charging problems and even make the situation worst by adding Freon to a system that is already full.

Air Conditioner Filters

Replacing your filter on a regular basis (cheap filters every 30 days or premium filters every 90 days) ensures good air flow and reduces dust and dirt from collecting on the evaporator coil which could impair it’s heat absorbing capacity. Check your filter more often during mid summer and winter since the AC runs more often.

Air Conditioner Coils

Over months or years of using your air conditioner the evaporator coil collects dust which clogs the coil thus reducing it’s ability to absorb heat. As part of our annual maintenance plan, our technicians at County Line, LLC in Columbus, GA check the coils and clean if necessary.

Common AC Problems

If your unit isn’t turning on, you could have electric control failure. Your compressor, fan controls or thermostat could be worn out from having your system turn on and off too frequently. If you have limited airflow, your ducts could be leaking or clogged.

Refrigerant Leaks

If your air conditioner is low on refrigerant, you might have a leak resulting in the system turning on and off too frequently. Our certified technicians will fix any leak, perform a test, and then charge the system with the correct amount of refrigerant. The efficiency of your AC is greatest when the refrigerant charge matches the manufacturer’s specs and is not overcharged or undercharged.
