man-with-fanHere’s the thing: your air conditioner, no matter how great it is, is going to require repairs at some point. Of course, when it happens, it isn’t always convenient, but hey, at least there are plenty of great contractors out there (like us) willing to lend a helping hand!

There are a number of common AC repairs that we think you should be aware of, so below, we have listed some of them for you. All you’ve got to do is keep reading to find out more! (And of course, remember to schedule your AC repair in Orlando, FL with our team!)

Your Most Common Repairs

Here are some of the air conditioning troubles you might run into this season:

Compressor Issues

Your system’s compressor is tasked with pressurizing the refrigerant so that heat can be released. It has its own motor and a fair amount of electrical wiring, and therefore, is prone to its own set of repair needs. Since the compressor is a complex component of your air conditioner, and because refrigerant runs through it, it is highly important that you hire a professional to take care of any issues that arise.

Fan Problems

Your air conditioner has two main fans: the evaporator fan, which pushes cool air into your ductwork and the condenser fan, which removes heat from the system. There are a number of issues that can develop with these fans, including issues with the belts, motor problems, and loose or bent blades. Since these fans are so vital to the operation of your AC, it is important that repairs are taken care of right away.

Refrigerant Leaks

Your AC relies on the flow of refrigerant to keep your home nice and cool. Therefore, a refrigerant leak will typically lead to a decline in cooling output. You may see water surrounding your AC unit, notice ice on the evaporator coil, or hear a strange hissing sound. If these signs go ignored for too long, you could be facing an entire system breakdown, so it is best to remain proactive and schedule your repairs ASAP!

Ductwork Leaks

Leaky air ducts are a pretty serious problem, as they can contribute to up to 30% of air loss! That’s a whole lot of wasted energy! When your air ducts are leaky, you can certainly expect reduced efficiency and higher energy costs!

You Need Professional Repairs

When the time comes to schedule your air conditioning repairs, you want to make absolutely certain that you’ve hired a licensed professional for the job. Otherwise, you could be left with a whole slew of other issues!
