5 Common Air Conditioner Repair Issues

Are you having trouble with your air conditioner? Don’t fret! As air conditioners age, simple cleaning and small repairs may be needed to keep them in top form. Below are five common reasons your air conditioner may be having an issue and how to repair them:

Low Refrigerant

Refrigerants are what removes the heat from our homes. When a leak occurs in the coils that house the refrigerant, the levels can become too low to effectively cool the home. Snell Heating & Air Conditioning offers air conditioning services in Arlington, Alexandria, and other areas of Virginia. Our technicians can find and repair the leaks and replace the refrigerant to get your AC unit back up and running.

Frozen Evaporator Coils

If the evaporator coils on your air conditioner freeze, there is no way for heat to be absorbed and removed from the home. If your AC unit is blowing warm air, this may be the issue and calling a service technician should be your next move.

Dirty Condenser Coils

As air conditioners age, dirt can build up on the condenser coils. This dirt can make it harder for the AC unit to do its job and may lead to premature failure. We suggest scheduling an air conditioning repair or tune-up once a year to remove dirt and grime build-up.

Fan Problems

There are two fans that work to provide cool air to your home. When these fan motors begin to fail, aren’t lubricated properly, or their belts are worn, they lose the ability to circulate air within the home. Have a certified technician take a look if you suspect a worn fan may be causing an issue.

Clogged Drains

The moisture that is removed from the air in your home needs to be released somewhere. Typically this moisture is removed through a drain line. When this line becomes clogged, the water can back-up into the system, causing it to malfunction. Look for leaks around the unit book an air conditioning service appointment with our team if your system stops working.

Air conditioning systems don’t last forever. While your air conditioner may only require a few small repairs, keep in mind that the average lifespan of an air conditioning system is 15-20 years and it may be best to consider a replacement.

Common Electric Furnace Issues

Electric furnaces have a lifespan of 20-30 years, making them a great option for heating your home. When an electric furnace is experiencing issues, a small furnace repair may be all that is needed to get it back up and running. Below are a few reasons your electric furnace may be acting up:

Dirty Filter

When a furnace filter hasn’t been changed in a while, dust and debris can clog the filter and end up causing issues with the blower fan. Our team of heating and cooling contractors near you offer emergency furnace repair and tune-up services to homes in Virginia to help resolve all types of issues.

Faulty Fuses

If fuses are improperly installed or incorrectly matched for the furnace’s capacity, a furnace may not run. Fuses that have built up dirt from lack of cleaning may also cause a furnace repair issue.

Bad Blower

When a blower is damaged it can work overtime, pulling too much power, resulting in a blown fuse. If this is the case, the blower may need to be replaced.

Water Damage

Electricity and water don’t mix. If your electric furnace has come in contact with water, it may have shorted out. Check your furnace for any signs of water damage and schedule a furnace repair or tune-up with our team in Virginia.

Loose Wire

Furnaces vibrate slightly as they blow air throughout your home. This vibration can lead to the loosening of wires causing a short.
