Beware These Early AC Repairs

air-conditioner-purchase-consider

While you might not be using it right now, every homeowner in  New Braunfels considers their AC their best friend. The system can keep your home feeling cool and comfortable during the hot summer months. The problem with ACs is that they are not perfect. There are times that they will need repairs, and there is no way around it.

Instead of letting the repairs catch you by surprise, we will discuss some early AC repairs that you could end up dealing with when you turn on your AC for the first time after winters. Make sure that you schedule our services for air conditioning repairs in New Braunfels, TX, before the season ends so you can have it up and running before spring.

Early AC Repairs You Should Address

Here are some of the most common early AC repairs you should address before the winter makes way for spring.

Compressor problems

The compressor is the workhorse that pressurizes the refrigerant in your AC. This allows your refrigerant to perform the heat transfer necessary to keep your home nice and cool during the hot summer months. The unit has its own motor, and it is a sophisticated part of your AC. It’s crucial to address any compressor problems immediately.

Fan issues

The compressor helps the refrigerant cool the air. Your AC also has two main fans. The condenser fan removes the heat accumulated in the HVAC, and the evaporator fan pushes the cool air into the ductwork. These fans can develop multiple problems over time. Make sure you schedule repairs to take care of any problems with the fans because they play a vital role in your AC.

Refrigerant leaks

The refrigerant in your AC transfers the heat out so it can cool the air that the fans blow into the ductwork. If there is a refrigerant leak in your HVAC, your system’s cooling will gradually deteriorate. Eventually, it will get to the point that your AC is just blowing warm air during the summer. You should schedule AC repairs as soon as you begin noticing that there is a possible refrigerant leak.

Ductwork leaks

Sometimes, the problem is not with your AC at all. Leaks in the duct network that distributes the cool and conditioned air could be causing the loss of cooling. If the duct leak is severe, it could make your AC completely ineffective. Additionally, the unit will work harder to try and cool your home. The result is little to no cooling with damage to your AC because of all the strain.

Call a Professional to Prepare Your AC

It is not easy to diagnose all these problems unless you are an expert. If you feel that your AC is certainly on the fritz but not what’s wrong with it, you should call in the experts to take a look and tell you what’s wrong. Consider calling us to check your AC to find out the problems and repair them immediately.
