There are a ton of reasons why your air conditioner can fail. But if you’re able to recognize potential issues, it will be much easier to understand what the technician is referring to when they are discussing your options. Check out some of the typical issue that happen with cooling units.
- Bad Wiring – Faulty wiring can be dangerous and potentially turn into a fire hazard. Shoddy wiring can also stop the circuit breaker from receiving power or even trigger the circuit breaker.
- Coil is Frozen – A frozen coil a sign that your refrigerant is low or that there is a blockage. Restriction of airflow can be caused by dirty filters or obstructed air duct work.
- Low Refrigerant – Your refrigerant, also referred to as Freon, is responsible for cooling the air that’s in your AC system. Lower levels of refrigerant could be an indication that there is a leak or another problem with the refrigerant system.
- Outdoor Unit Malfunctioning – The fan contained in your door unit has the responsibility of transferring warm air that is within the building to the outside. Without full functionality of this component, it is impossible for the correct heat transfer to happen. This could cause your AC to overheat or even cause internal damage to the compressor.
