There are certain things in life you don’t even think twice about fixing: a broken bone, a faulty refrigerator or even a classic car that’s been scratched one too many times. So, why is it then when something goes wrong with a cooling system, many people push the problem aside and neglect the inevitable? If your AC system isn’t making the grade, you can’t ignore it. You need to address issues at the first sign of trouble. If not, by the time you get around to taking charge, it’s going to be too late. And a quick repair is always less expensive than the cost of an entirely new system!
The bottom line is this: Your air conditioning system should be no different than anything else in your home that needs repair. And many times, whether you realize it or not, your system is usually sending you hints that something isn’t quite right. All you need to do is pay attention before you need an AC replacement.
So, are you listening? Anyone? Anyone? Here are some hints that your AC system may need repair:
OK, so, here’s your daily AC lesson. When it comes to the most common air conditioning repair problems, the truth is, most are easily fixable. So, when you hear that first sign of a clink or a clank, don’t panic. Our dudes can most definitely help. Here are eight common repair problems that we fix on a regular basis:
Filter. Dirty filters won’t allow an AC system to run properly or efficiently. Replace them regularly.
Thermostat. If your thermostat is off kilter or improperly set, your home could experience temperature issues. Our experts can easily assess and fix an offset thermostat.
Compressor. If your compressor isn’t working, the AC isn’t going to cool your home. Call us.
Refrigerant leaks. If coolant leaks into your air conditioning system, it isn’t going to work properly and you’ll experience uneven temperatures throughout your home.
Drainage. If your system isn’t draining properly you could have dirt or debris clogging the drain line. If your drain pan fills up, your line is probably clogged and you will need professional cleaning.
Condenser coils. These parts can get dirty and cause problems, too. Rinsing with water can often clear condenser coils of dirt. Or call Buehler for a professional cleaning.
Compressor. When a compressor fails, your system won’t provide cool air.
Evaporator coils. If these coils are corroded, you can experience inefficient cooling.
