3 Common Air Conditioning Repairs You Might Need This Summer, Purcell, Oklahoma

It never fails. Your air conditioning breaks down when you need it most on a hot summer day. The good news is you can take steps to avoid unnecessary air conditioning repairs through regular maintenance and by staying alert to potential problems. If you experience any of these issues, contact an HVAC technician as soon as possible to keep the problem from escalating into an expensive repair.

3 Air Conditioning Repairs Common in The Summertime

1. Low Coolant

If your air conditioner is blowing out warm air, or seems to struggle to cool a room, it’s possible it simply needs more refrigerant. Without the proper levels of coolant, your system will turn on but only blow lukewarm air. A licensed HVAC technician can measure your unit’s refrigerant levels and add more as needed.

2. Dirty Filters or Frozen Coils

Filters are the first line of defense between your unit’s internal system and outdoor air, and they collect dust, dirt, and allergens within their fibers. Dirty filters will restrict airflow, causing your air conditioner to work extra hard to push air into a room. Over time, they will also result in frozen coils, which prevents cold air from blowing out.

3. Blocked Condenser Units

Your system’s condenser unit resides outdoors and needs plenty of airflow to function properly. The problem arises when grass, flowers, natural debris, or outdoor furniture blocks the condenser unit’s access to air. Keep grass cut, weeds pulled, plant flowers at least 10 feet away from the unit, and keep objects out of the area for the best results.
