The 5 Most Common Central Air Conditioning Repair Problems for Elkhorn & Omaha Home Owners

Posted by

With an Annual Tune-up & Inspection, Most Problems can be Avoided.

Although there are potentially hundreds of reasons why your home’s central air conditioner may need to be repaired, there are five reasons that keep popping up, over and over again.

So if you spot any of these leading A/C system “trouble makers,” it’s a good bet you’re going to require our professional assistance.

1. Frozen inside coil

A frozen coil often indicates a problem with the airflow, such as restrictions caused by dirty air filters or a blocked return air ductwork.  Frozen indoor coils could also be caused by low refrigerant levels.

2. Outside unit not functional

This typically indicates lack of power, contactor problems or even a faulty thermostat.

3. Outside fan is not working

The outside fan is responsible for transferring the heat from your home to the outside air.   If the outside fan doesn’t run, proper heat transfer is not taking place and the air conditioning compressor may overheat and trip the safety overload. Worse yet, it may cause internal damage to the compressor.

4. Low refrigerant

Refrigerant is the chemical that cools the air. Low refrigerant may indicate a leak or problem with the system.  All refrigerant leaks should be located and repaired.

5.  Faulty wiring

 

Improper, haphazard, or uncertified A/C wiring is dangerous and a potential fire hazard. Faulty wiring often prevents the system from getting power, or can trip the circuit breaker.
