While much of the country is starting to see a reprieve from the high temperatures of summertime, here in Las Vegas, we’re are still in the thick of it. Many of us are thanking our lucky stars that we have a working AC system to keep us cool no matter how hot it is outside. That is, until you go to turn it on and it all of a sudden isn’t working. There are a few common repairs that are often needed in the middle of the summer season. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning is here to talk about some of the repairs homeowners often face in the middle of summer.
Air Conditioner Refrigerant Leaks
While there are many people that think you use up refrigerant over time, like you would a gallon of gas in your vehicle, this isn’t true. Your refrigerant is in a closed system and should be good as long as the unit is working. That is, unless you have sprung a leak somewhere and are losing the refrigerant that way. Some homeowners choose to simply have their refrigerant recharged, but that isn’t going to last long if you are dealing with a leak somewhere. If your system is all of a sudden not giving you the cool air out of the vents that it usually does, or it has formed ice on the coils, it could be a refrigerant leak you’re dealing with.
Clogged Condensate Drain Line
The condensate lines should be checked on your AC unit every single year when routine maintenance is performed. This is because they can get build up in them that keeps them from working the way that they should. If you have noticed that your unit is leaking water, it is a sign that there is a clog somewhere or your condensate lines are dirty and need to be cleaned out.
Fan Belt Replacement
This is another area that is always checked during maintenance, but a fan belt that is worn and needs to be replaced can be a common problem in the summer months. You will know there is a problem because you will hear it. Anytime you hear squealing, or it sounds like there is a part of your unit that is loose, you should call on the professionals to handle it right away. This is actually a simple fix that isn’t as expensive as other repairs.
