Common Problems That Lead to Air Conditioning Service 04/27/2017In Pinellas County, there are a few common problems that bring homeowners to call Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc for air conditioning service. We’ve collected 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 work properly if its filters and coils become clogged up with dirt and debris. In reality, this problem often leads to compressors and fans failing prematurely. It’s crucial to always schedule your annual air conditioner service with Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc and take a look at your air filters to avert this problem. Leaking refrigerant—Leaking refrigerant can cause a number of issues, including a frozen coil. Unfortunately, you can’t fix a refrigerant leak by increasing refrigerant. This problem needs to be controlled by a professional who can mend the leak and check to make sure it’s fully fixed. He or she can also charge your system with the precise amount of refrigerant your air conditioner’s manufacturer specifies, which will make sure that your air conditioner is functioning at its best. Problems with outdoor unit—Sometimes the outside fan fails to work as it should, which impedes heat transfer and can cause your air conditioner to overheat and even impair the compressor. If the whole outdoor unit shuts down, you could have a difficulty with wiring or your thermostat. Thermostat issues—It’s not unusual for homeowners to require air conditioner repairs that stem from problems with their thermostat. Whether it’s a programming problem or an issue with the sensor or wiring, your technician can help.
