We’ve gathered them together for you, so you know what to watch for and what could be instigating the problems. Lack of maintenance—If you’ve neglected to schedule annual air conditioner service, you could end up paying for it in unnecessary repairs. Your air conditioner can’t operate properly if its filters and coils become blocked up with dirt and debris. In reality, this problem often leads to compressors and fans dying prematurely. It’s crucial to always arrange your annual air conditioner service with Air Max HVAC Inc and check your air filters to prevent this problem. Leaking refrigerant—Leaking refrigerant can cause a number of issues, including a frozen coil. Sadly, you can’t fix a refrigerant leak by adding more refrigerant. This problem needs to be controlled by a professional who can mend the leak and try it out to make sure it’s truly repaired. He or she can also charge your system with the precise amount of refrigerant your air conditioner’s manufacturer stipulates, which will guarantee that your air conditioner is operating at its best. Problems with outdoor unit—Sometimes the external fan fails to run properly, which impedes heat transfer and can instigate your air conditioner to overheat and even impair the compressor. If the whole outdoor unit fails to work, you could have a problem with wiring or your thermostat. Thermostat issues—It’s pretty standard for homeowners to need air conditioner repairs that arise from trouble with their thermostat. Whether it’s a programming problem or an issue with the sensor or wiring, your technician can help.
