Common Problems That Lead to Air Conditioning Service Posted April 27, 2017 In Laguna Niguel, there are a few common problems that guide homeowners to call Ocean Air Conditioning and Heating for air conditioning service. We’ve collected them together for you, so you know what to look for and what could be instigating the issues. Lack of maintenance—If you’ve failed to remember to schedule annual air conditioner service, you could wind up paying for it in preventable repairs. Your air conditioner can’t work properly if its filters and coils become obstructed up with dirt and debris. Actually, this problem often precedes compressors and fans failing prematurely. It’s critical to always arrange your annual air conditioner service with Ocean Air Conditioning and Heating and inspect your air filters to avoid this problem. Leaking refrigerant—Leaking refrigerant can cause several problems, including a frozen coil. Alas, you can’t correct a refrigerant leak by increasing refrigerant. This problem needs to be handled by an expert who can fix the leak and check to make sure it’s truly mended. He or she can also charge your system with the precise amount of refrigerant your air conditioner’s manufacturer identifies, which will ensure that your air conditioner is functioning at its best. Problems with outdoor unit—Sometimes the exterior fan fails to operate correctly, which impedes heat transfer and can prompt your air conditioner to overheat and even impair the compressor. If the full outdoor unit fails to work, you could have an issue with wiring or your thermostat. Thermostat issues—It’s not unusual for homeowners to need 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.
