Common Problems That Lead to Air Conditioning Service 04/27/2017In Tampa Bay, there are a few normal problems that bring homeowners to request Langford Cooling for air conditioning service. We’ve pulled them together for you, so you know what to search for and what could be instigating the issues. Lack of maintenance—If you’ve neglected to schedule regular air conditioner service, you could end up paying for it in preventable repairs. Your air conditioner can’t work correctly if its filters and coils become obstructed up with dirt and debris. Actually, this problem often leads to compressors and fans breaking down prematurely. It’s crucial to always arrange your yearly air conditioner service with Langford Cooling and inspect your air filters to avert this problem. Leaking refrigerant—Leaking refrigerant can cause a number of issues, including a frozen coil. Alas, you can’t fix a refrigerant leak by inserting more refrigerant. This problem needs to be handled by an expert who can repair the leak and try it out to make sure it’s accurately mended. He or she can also charge your system with the same amount of refrigerant your air conditioner’s manufacturer specifies, which will ensure that your air conditioner is working at its best. Problems with outdoor unit—Sometimes the exterior fan fails to operate properly, which impedes heat transfer and can instigate your air conditioner to overheat and even impair the compressor. If the whole outdoor unit shuts down, you could have an issue with wiring or your thermostat. Thermostat issues—It’s pretty standard for homeowners to require air conditioner repairs that arise from problems with their thermostat. Whether it’s a programming problem or an issue with the sensor or wiring, your technician can help.
