If your AC is professionally installed and maintained, then it should be in good shape for years to come, but repairs occur in even the most well maintained systems—they are a part of taking care of any mechanical system. Here are 3 of the most common:
- Thermostat fault. More often than not, the cause of your AC not turning on or off, or not cooling enough, is due to the faulty operation of your thermostat. You need your thermostat to communicate accurately with your AC unit, and you need it to adjust the temperature accordingly. There may be an electrical wiring problem or it may need to be properly calibrated. If it cannot be repaired, consider upgrading to a programmable thermostat for worry-free and energy-efficient climate control.
- 2. Frozen coil. Your cooling system depends upon the continuous movement of the refrigerant in its cycle, as well as the continuous movement of air in your supply and return ductwork. If there is a blockage in the system, the cold air can build up on your evaporator coil and cause it freeze. Frost on the coils may activate the system’s defrost process, which can shut down your AC when you need it most; but it can also create problems in other parts of the system.
- 3. Blower motor doesn’t work. The indoor unit of your AC contains the air handler, in which your blower motor sits. The blower motor controls the fan that distributes cool air throughout your ductwork and into your living space. If it has become damaged or caked with dirt and debris, then it may need to be repaired or possibly replaced.
