Common AC Repairs in Lexington, Kentucky
AC systems are intricate and have many components. Because of the complexity of today’s units, there’s a good chance that your AC unit will, at some point, need one of the following problems repaired:
- Low refrigerant: A low refrigerant level indicates either a leak in the lines or that the unit is undercharged. Refrigerant damages the environment and must be handled by trained technicians.
- Electrical: Cracked or frayed wiring, loose connections, burned out capacitors and faulty switches are potential fire hazards.
- Frozen evaporator coil: Several problems can cause your evaporator coil to ice up, including low refrigerant levels, dirt and reduced airflow due to clogged or dirty filters.
- Compressor failure: The compressor is the heart of your AC unit and is expensive to replace, but it’s not enough to simply replace the compressor. You need to identify what caused the failure in the first place; otherwise, your new compressor might also fail.
- Fan and blower motors: Damaged motors can cause your AC unit to overheat or suffer a decrease in air pressure.
Air Conditioning Maintenance Helps Prevent Repairs
Regular air conditioning maintenance reduces the need for many AC repairs. DIY maintenance tasks include cleaning the condensate line, unblocking registers and changing air filters. Maintenance tasks best left to a professional include checking the condensate pump, calibrating controls, lubing moving parts, and cleaning the evaporator and condenser coils.
