3 Common Reasons for Air Conditioning Repair, Miami, Ohio

As temperatures warm up, you’ll be relying on your air conditioning more frequently. No homeowner wants to adjust their thermostat only to find that their unit doesn’t function properly. Reduced airflow, warm air, or no airflow at all may indicate serious trouble with your system. Here are some of the reasons why you could find yourself needing assistance with your unit.

Top 3 Culprits Behind Air Conditioning Repair

1. Refrigerant Leak

Refrigerant — or Freon® — is an essential chemical within your air conditioner that allows the unit to cool air prior to its dispersal throughout the home. Without refrigerant, your system won’t be able to provide cool air. If your unit is only yielding warm air, this often means that a leak is present. The leak should be repaired and refrigerant should be recharged as quickly as possible. A fast cleanup of leaking refrigerant is vital, as the fluid can be harmful to human health and the environment.

2. Frozen Coils

Failing to change air filters or remove obstructions from return air ducts will overwork your system. This will increase the risk that a layer of ice will form, which can cause the unit to stop working entirely.

3. Faulty Fans

If your air conditioning doesn’t seem to be delivering adequate air flow or any air at all, a damaged fan could be to blame. The unit’s outside fan must be working properly to provide effective heat transfer. Faulty fans can also lead to compressor damage, which is far more difficult and costly to repair.
