Common AC REPAIRs
One of the most common AC repairs is a Freon leak. Freon is the coolant that helps keep your home cool and comfortable. A leak in your system can cause your AC to lose its cooling power. You may notice that your home isn’t as cool as it should be, or you may hear a hissing noise coming from your AC unit. It’s important to call a HVAC technician from Blackbelt AC & Electric if you suspect you have a Freon leak.
DIRTY/DAMAGED CONDENSER COILS
Another common repair is an issue with the condenser coils. These coils are responsible for dissipating heat from the refrigerant. Dirty or damaged condenser coils will not be able to do their job properly. This can lead to your AC unit working overtime, which can lead to higher energy bills and eventually break downs. To prevent this problem, be sure to regularly clean your condenser coils. You can do this yourself with a brush and some cleaning solution, or you can hire a professional to do it for you.
FROZEN EVAPORATOR COILS
If your AC unit is not blowing cold air, there could be a problem with the evaporator coils. These coils are responsible for absorbing heat from the air in your home. Frozen coils will not be able to do their job properly and your home will not be cooled effectively. To thaw out frozen evaporator coils, you’ll need to turn off your AC unit and let it sit for a few hours. Once the coils have thawed, you can turn your AC unit back on and it should work properly.
Another common repair is an issue with the thermostat. The thermostat is responsible for regulating the temperature in your home. If it is not working properly, your AC unit will not be able to maintain a consistent temperature. This can lead to your home feeling too hot or too cold. If you suspect that your thermostat is not working properly, it’s important to call a professional for help.
You may be in need of an AC repair if you hear unusual noise coming from your unit. If your AC unit is making strange noises, it could be an indication of a problem with the compressor. The compressor is responsible for moving the refrigerant through the AC system. If it is not working properly, it can cause your AC unit to make strange noises. If you hear any unusual noises coming from your AC unit, it’s important to call a professional for help.
Finally, if your AC unit is not turning on at all, there could be an issue with the electrical components. This is a more serious problem that should be handled by a professional. If you suspect that there is an issue with the electrical components in your AC unit, it’s important to call an electrician for help.
