Is your air conditioner working hard to cool your home and keep your family feeling comfortable? With daytime temperatures regularly breaking the 90-degree mark in Maurice, Louisiana, there’s no doubt it has consumed a lot of energy. If you didn’t schedule preventive maintenance on your AC system before the cooling season, it’s likely struggling to cool your home. To prevent a premature AC replacement, don’t wait to take care of these three air conditioner repairs:
Your air conditioner has contactors for the compressor, blower motor and condenser fan motor. These contactors create an electrical connection that starts the compressor and motors. Pitting corrosion damage will cut the electrical current. As a result, your air conditioning system will frequently turn on and off and not operate as it should.
Clogged Condensate Drain Line
Like your air conditioner’s filter, the condensate drain line can become clogged with dust, dirt and other debris. A clogged drain line will eventually cause the pan to overflow with excess water, which can damage the air conditioner and anything around it. You should periodically check the condensate drain line to ensure it isn’t clogged.
Leaking refrigerant will cause your air conditioner to malfunction. As a result, you’ll experience temperature fluctuations in your home. A NATE-certified service technician can find the leak, fix it, test the repair and charge the AC system with the correct amount of refrigerant. Repairing an AC refrigerant leak yourself can be dangerous. Therefore, you shouldn’t try it!
