If your systems low on freon then there is only so much heat that can be removed from the home, if any at all. In order for things to be cold, they must have heat removed from them. That’s why having the correct amount of freon in a system is very important. We perform low freon repairs mostly in the summer time for air conditioners and heat pumps. Maintenance can help prevent this from becoming a problem.
Capacitors control the running and starting of the motors for your air conditioner, there are two types, start and run capacitors. If your start capacitor goes out then your fan motor for your condenser or evaporator will not start, and if your run capacitor goes out then your motors won’t be able to run after being started. We work on run capacitors year round because they are necessary for the unit to work. Capacitors can be caught before breaking down make sure you have annual maintenance to prevent air conditioner breakdowns.
Bad Electrical Connections
Bad electrical connections can prevent your AC unit from communicating with your thermostat and will prevent your system from working. Annual maintenance can also help stop this problem from becoming a breakdown.
Frozen Indoor Coil
Your systems evaporator coil (aka indoor coil) can get so frozen that it will actually block airflow. It can freeze up just by dirty filters restricting airflow. Low freon is another possible reason since the system is still reducing pressure and temperature as if there is the correct amount of freon, it will get too cold and once the coil drops below freezing temperature any moisture present will freeze on the coil. Regularly changing filters can help prevent this from becoming a problem.
