It may seem crazy to many people that we would even start to mention the words air conditioning in February, but when you experience a Vegas winter, you know we aren’t mentioning it too soon at all. Our daily temperatures are starting to rise, and before you know it, we will be dealing with days that see the temperature climb into the triple digits. This means, it’s time to get your AC system in good working order. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning is here to talk about some of the most common AC problems we find.
Is an AC Refrigerant Leak Dangerous?
If your AC system doesn’t have the right refrigerant levels, it won’t be able to effectively cool your home. While many people may think that refrigerant is constantly getting used up and that’s why it sometimes needs to be recharged, that isn’t the case. Your AC system is a closed system that should simply have the refrigerant it needs to operate unless there is a leak somewhere. If you have a refrigerant issue, it is important that the system isn’t just recharged, but that the refrigerant leak is also fixed. It is important that the refrigerant levels in your system are just right for it to work as it should. In addition refrigerant leaks can be dangerously toxic for your loved ones and the environment.
AC Drain is Clogged
As your AC unit works to cool your home, there is condensation that is present during the process. Your AC system removes any excessive moisture in the air as it works to bring the temperature down in your home. When there is moisture like this present, it needs to be able to drain properly by means of the drainage lines or the drip pan. Sometimes, a clog can form and end up causing cooling issues in your home. If this problem goes without repairing it, it can cause damage to your entire system.
What Happens when AC Condenser Fan Fails?
Part of how your AC unit works is to remove heat from your home and replace it with cool air. To do this, the outdoor unit has a fan, coils and compressor to get the job done. If there is something wrong with the outdoor compressor fan, the process of removing this hot air is compromised and you won’t get the cool air you are looking for. A professional can inspect the situation to see if the fan needs to be replaced or can simply be repaired.
How do you fix a frozen AC coil?
Without proper airflow, your AC system’s coils run the risk of freezing up. When they are frozen, you won’t get cold air blowing in your vents. There are several issues that could be the cause of your frozen coils, and an HVAC professional can help you get to the bottom of it.
