Common Problems That Lead to Air Conditioning Service Posted April 27, 2017 In Payson, there are a few shared problems that bring homeowners to call North Mechanical Heating and Cooling for air conditioning service. We’ve pulled them together for you, so you know what to search for and what could be creating the problems. Lack of maintenance—If you’ve forgotten to schedule regular air conditioner service, you could end up paying for it in preventable repairs. Your air conditioner can’t run efficiently if its filters and coils become blocked up with dirt and debris. In fact, this problem often comes before compressors and fans dying prematurely. It’s important to always arrange your annual air conditioner service with North Mechanical Heating and Cooling and inspect your air filters to avert this problem. Leaking refrigerant—Leaking refrigerant can cause several problems, including a frozen coil. Sadly, you can’t correct a refrigerant leak by inserting more refrigerant. This problem needs to be controlled by a professional who can repair the leak and test it to make sure it’s truly mended. He or she can also charge your system with the exact amount of refrigerant your air conditioner’s manufacturer identifies, which will ensure that your air conditioner is operating at its best. Problems with outdoor unit—Sometimes the exterior fan fails to run properly, which impedes heat transfer and can instigate your air conditioner to overheat and even harm the compressor. If the whole outdoor unit fails to work, you could have a difficulty with wiring or your thermostat. Thermostat issues—It’s common for homeowners to need air conditioner repairs that arise from problems with their thermostat. Whether it’s a programming problem or an issue with the sensor or wiring, your specialist can help.
