Common Problems and HVAC Repair Tips

In winter and summer, with heat and cold, in every home,  we want to feel cozy and comfortable. It is the HVAC system that helps with this almost without fail. But sometimes we can watch the air conditioning dripping or your AC compressor not working. What should you do? We’re here to guide you through common HVAC problems and how to troubleshoot them effectively.

Air Conditioning Dripping

One of the most frustrating issues homeowners face is air conditioning dripping. If you notice water pooling around your unit, it could indicate a clogged condensate drain or a refrigerant leak. Start by checking and clearing any debris from the drain line. If the problem persists, it’s time to call in a professional to assess for leaks.

AC Frozen Coil

A common culprit behind AC frozen coils is restricted airflow. It often happens caused of dirty air filters or blocked vents. Replace your air filters regularly and ensure all vents are clear of obstructions. One more piece of advice – low refrigerant levels or a malfunctioning blower fan can also lead to AC coil freezing.

AC Compressor Not Working

If your AC compressor is not working, it could be due to various reasons. For example, electrical issues, a faulty capacitor, or compressor overload. Check for any unusual AC compressor noise and inspect the electrical connections. If everything seems fine, it’s better to call professional assistance to diagnose and resolve the problem.

House Air Conditioning Not Cooling

The air conditioner in the house does not cool. When the air conditioner in your home is not cooling, this is often the main problem people come to us with. Try starting by checking that the thermostat is set correctly and that there are no blockages restricting airflow. If the problem persists, it may indicate a refrigerant leak or a compressor problem. Fixing central air conditioner issues related to the compressor requires professional assistance to diagnose and resolve the underlying cause.

Fan Not Working on Air Conditioner

A fan not working on the air conditioner can result from a defective fan motor, a faulty relay switch, or a blown fuse. Before calling in a technician, try resetting the circuit breaker and cleaning the fan blades. If the issue persists, it’s best to consult with a professional for further diagnosis and repair.
