Consider a vehicle in need of repair. Unless you’re a gearhead that loves working on cars, you probably have no idea what went wrong with your car. It could be anything! Sure, there may be a few problems that could be a simple fix. But other repairs are more complex and come with a higher price tag. You never know for sure unless you have a technician evaluate the vehicle.
The same can be said for an air conditioner repair. Your AC could be broken due to leaks, age, electrical issues, wear and tear, faulty installation, or any number of other reasons. RES's trained and certified technicians can visit your home and evaluate your system. From there, we can give you a straight answer on what’s needed to get your air conditioner up and running.
With the temperature rising in your home, you might be curious about the possible reasons for your broken AC. Here are some of the more common problems we see in East Texas:
Faulty Sensors – Your air conditioning system is full of sensing devices that communicate with the equipment. Sensors in your thermostat tell your AC to turn on or off. Temperature sensors on the coils can indicate if the tubes are too hot or too cold, which may trigger an error. If a sensor isn’t calibrated correctly, or a sensor has simply stopped working, that can cause your AC to stop working.
Refrigerant Leak – Air conditioners use refrigerant to cool air. The refrigerant is contained in pipes that connect outdoor and indoor air conditioning equipment. If there’s a leak, it can cause the AC not to cool as effectively. The best solution is to find the leak, seal it, and add refrigerant back to proper levels.
Drainage Problems – Does your ceiling have water spots, or do you notice a pool of water coming from the AC closet? Those are sure signs of a drainage issue. Air conditioning coils get very cold and produce condensation. That excess water needs to go somewhere! Air conditioners are designed with drain pans and piping to help the condensation water flow away. But if there’s a clog somewhere, the water can’t escape and it will start to pool, just like a clogged drain in your bathtub. If the water levels rise too high, your air conditioner will shut off to prevent overflow. Our team can help identify and clear clogs in your drain, and get your system operating smoothly once again!
Compressor Issues – A compressor problem is one of the most complex repairs. A compressor is responsible for changing the state of the refrigerant in the system, and pushing the refrigerant through the pipes. Needless to say, your compressor is the most important part of your air conditioner. Compressors are both sophisticated and expensive. If you’re confronted with the reality of a compressor replacement, you might consider replacing the air conditioner instead.
As advanced as modern HVAC equipment is, any piece of machinery requires regular maintenance to keep it in top working order. Without regular inspections and cleanings, small things such as dust can really add up in big ways. Without a dedicated maintenance routine, you miss out on 3 key benefits:
HVAC systems are certainly susceptible to wear and tear. As a fairly large purchase, it’s always in a homeowner’s best interest to protect this investment at all costs. A routine maintenance plan does exactly that. It will prevent minor mishaps from becoming system failures and prolong your system’s lifespan.
Just like us, if your HVAC system isn’t at its best, it won’t perform at its best. Whether there is an obstruction that’s forcing your system to overwork, or your refrigerant is leaking, if you’re system isn’t at 100% you’re not getting the benefit of its full potential in terms of energy efficiency. This will lead to increasingly higher energy bills and inevitably a shorter lifespan.
There’s nothing like having a well-maintained HVAC system that you never have to think about. By having routine maintenance scheduled on an annual or bi-annual basis, you can achieve the ultimate peace of mind that your system is performing at its best.
