The Basics of AC Repair

If your AC has a problem that prevents it from cooling your home or office properly, you need to call for professional air conditioning repair. Regardless of the type of AC you have, an experienced technician can diagnose and repair your unit quickly to get it working again.

Typically, the service technician will inspect and clean your HVAC system, checking for issues like mold or dirt buildup that could cause further damage. He or she will also check the thermostat and other parts to make sure they are functioning correctly.

The technician may also recommend maintenance, such as changing your air filter regularly and repairing any leaks in the system. These routine tasks help you maintain your system and increase its lifespan.

Another important part of the air conditioner repair process is cleaning your evaporator coil. Depending on the type of AC you have, this coil is located in either your outdoor unit or in a separate indoor unit. The evaporator coil can be clogged with dirt and debris that blocks the circulation of cool air through the coil.

Some types of dust and mold can also clog your evaporator coil. An experienced technician will clean the coil and other components of your AC Repair to keep it operating properly.

A professional technician will also check the evaporator coil for refrigerant leaks. Refrigerant is the substance that absorbs heat from the air to cool your home or business. Refrigerant leaks can lead to poor airflow through your ductwork, which leads to uneven temperatures and a more difficult time keeping your home or business comfortable.

Replacing the evaporator coil or condenser is often the most effective way to fix a leak, as it will help you save money on your electricity bill and improve your home’s comfort. An expert can remove any debris from the evaporator coil and replace it with new material that is designed to last.

In addition to repairing your evaporator coil, the technician may recommend changing your air filter. The air filter helps prevent a buildup of dirt and dust on the cooling coil, which can lead to problems.

If the air filter is dirty or clogged, it can cause your evaporator coil to overheat and eventually break down. Changing the filter frequently will prevent this from happening.

During the summer, a clogged air filter can also cause your AC to malfunction. An obstructed air filter can prevent your unit from cooling effectively, which can lead to high utility bills and increased energy usage.

The air filters on both your central AC and a ductless AC system can get clogged with dust, so it’s important to change them every 30 to 90 days. Most filters are cardboard frames that are surrounded by foam or mesh, which helps trap dust and debris.

Your evaporator and condenser coils can also become clogged with dirt, so it’s important to keep them free of debris. This can be done by clearing away any trash or mowing your lawn, as well as removing any dryer vents or any other potential source of dirt in the area around the coil.
