Common AC Repair Problems
The number one most common repair issue for AC units is that the unit is not producing cold air. This can be tied to a number of different core issues, from a malfunctioning thermostat to frozen coils or a dirty air filter. In many cases, these basic air conditioning issues can be prevented with regular unit check-ups from your local HVAC team. Much like doing to the dentist or doctor on a regular basis, making sure that everything is in tip-top shape with your climate system can be the easiest way to prevent issues down the road.
If your standing AC unit is leaking more than usual, it may be time for a filter repair. Most standing units come with instructions to help make switching the filters easier, and replacement filters can be found at your local hardware store. However, if at any point you are unsure how to go about replacing your AC unit’s filter, give us a call. Here at Chad Love Services, no AC problem is too big, or too small, to handle.
A common central air problem involves a blockage in the air conditioning ducts throughout your home and is most often caused by a damaged filter. In the case of an unknown blockage, our team of AC repair experts will use a small camera or other means to check the vents in the walls of your home for anything that may be preventing airflow. We will also check to make sure there are no other underlying issues, such as a blocked external air vent or a damaged filter. In some cases, the solution can be as simple as moving overgrown bushes from outside of your home or apartment. In others, you may need to clean out the vents in your home before your AC unit can properly cool things down again.
Other common signs of an air conditioning problem in need of repair are if your home cooling system is making odd noises or you notice weird smells coming from the unit. This can be a sign of wiring problems or coil issues that could lead to a full system failure if not taken care of right away. Making sure to get your air conditioning unit looked at as soon as you notice a problem can be the difference between a quick fix and a total replacement.
