Common Air Conditioner Problems & Repairs

Common Air Conditioner Problems & Repairs

It’s summer. It’s hot. And your air conditioner isn’t working. One night in a room without air conditioning is usually enough to make any Washington area resident miserable. SSI understands this and strives to help any customer quickly get their air conditioner repaired and running again.

There is no shortage of causes for a broken air conditioner, but there tend to be a few that are most common. To better understand the repairs that you may one day come across, here are some of the basics:

  • Frozen Inside Coil usually indicates a blockage, either in the duct work or perhaps because of dirty filters, that keeps air from flowing. Be sure to clean your air ducts periodically, and routinely change out your air filters. It’s critical to keeping the cool air moving throughout your home. Low refrigerant may also be to blame.
  • Low Refrigerant is the chemical that cools the air. If it’s low, it may indicate a leak somewhere in your system.
  • Faulty Wiring is a serious situation that can cause a fire if not installed properly. Only a certified repair person should ever work on the unit.
  • Broken Outside Unit or Fan may indicate either an issue with power supplied to the unit or a faulty thermostat.

Proper maintenance is vital to keeping your air conditioner running smoothly. SSI can provide yearly inspections to address any potential issues before they become a problem.
