Why isn’t my A/C working?
Here are common causes of A/C malfunction:
Shoddy, haphazard or uncertified A/C wiring is risky and a possible fire hazard. Bad wiring can prevent the system from getting power or can trip the circuit breaker.
Refrigerant is the chemical that cools the air within your air conditioning system. Reduced levels of refrigerant could imply a leak or problem with the refrigerant system. If your air conditioning system needs to be recharged with refrigerant, 90% of the time that suggests there is a leak. All refrigerant leaks should be located and repaired. To read about the phase out of R-22 refrigerant in the United States, we highly recommend you to visit the U.S. EPA website.
Outside fan is not working
The outside fan is responsible for driving the heat from your home outside. If the fan on the outside unit doesn’t perform correctly, proper heat transfer cannot take place and the air conditioning compressor may overheat and trip the safety overload. Worse yet, it may cause internal damage to the compressor.
Outside unit not functional
This usually indicates a lack of power, contactor problems or even a faulty thermostat.
The coil is frozen
A frozen coil often indicates an issue with the airflow, such as restrictions caused by filthy air filters or obstructed return air ductwork. Frozen indoor coils could also be the result of low refrigerant.
The best way for a homeowner to prevent these problems is by participating in a preventive maintenance program, like our Advantage Plan. Low refrigerant, bad wiring and many other problems can be discovered during routine maintenance. For all these common issues, a professionally qualified, NATE-certified technician can promptly analyze your A/C unit and implement the necessary repairs. Contact us today for an evaluation!
