Common Problems That Lead to Air Conditioning Service 04/27/2017In Albuquerque, there are a few shared problems that bring homeowners to ask Desert Suns Heating & Cooling for air conditioning service. We’ve gathered them together for you, so you know what to search for and what could be creating the difficulties. Lack of maintenance—If you’ve neglected to schedule annual air conditioner service, you could wind up paying for it in preventable repairs. Your air conditioner can’t operate efficiently if its filters and coils become blocked up with dirt and debris. In fact, this problem often precedes compressors and fans failing prematurely. It’s crucial to always schedule your yearly air conditioner service with Desert Suns Heating & Cooling and inspect your air filters to avoid this problem. Leaking refrigerant—Leaking refrigerant can cause a few different problems, including a frozen coil. Unfortunately, you can’t repair a refrigerant leak by adding more refrigerant. This problem needs to be controlled by a specialist who can mend the leak and check to make sure it’s truly repaired. He or she can also charge your system with the same amount of refrigerant your air conditioner’s manufacturer stipulates, which will ensure that your air conditioner is functioning at its best. Problems with outdoor unit—Sometimes the external fan fails to work as it should, which obstructs heat transfer and can instigate your air conditioner to overheat and even harm the compressor. If the entire outdoor unit fails to work, you could have a difficulty with wiring or your thermostat. Thermostat issues—It’s pretty standard for homeowners to call for air conditioner repairs that originate from trouble with their thermostat. Whether it’s a programming problem or an issue with the sensor or wiring, your specialist can help.
