Summer is here, and you want your home to be cool and inviting when you come inside from the heat. So it’s a major disappointment when your air conditioner is broken. There are many reasons that air conditioners won’t push out cold air, and there are certain signs that you should watch out for so that you know when to call a Montgomery County AC repair company. If you notice any of these signs, be sure to call a local Montgomery County AC repair company, such as Angel Heating & Cooling, so that we can repair or replace your air conditioner.
Without an adequate level of coolant, your air conditioner will still blow air, but it won’t be cool. You shouldn’t need to replace the freon in your air conditioner unless you have a leak. Besides the registers blowing air at room temperature, there are a couple of other ways that you will know that you have a leak. Although a hissing sound can signal one of several problems, a refrigerant leak is among them. You might also notice a gurgling noise if the leak is large, and you might notice ice or frost on the condenser coils.
Clogged Drain Line
If a drain line becomes clogged, you might not notice any effects right away, but water can begin to spill onto the floor. When your air conditioner cools your home, it also pulls humidity out of the air, which results in condensation that needs to be collected and routed out of the air conditioner through a drain line. The drain line can become clogged if there’s a buildup of dust, hair, or other debris. When the line becomes clogged, water will pool outside of the air conditioner. This can expose sensitive pieces that can’t get wet to the built-up condensation.
You need capacitors to give jolts of energy to the motor that powers the fans and compressor. A capacitor can break because it overheats, which happens from direct sunlight on hot days and it simply working too hard. Another reason is age. Fixing a broken capacitor isn’t that expensive, but if the unit continues to run when a capacitor is broken, other pieces on the air conditioner can break, which can be expensive.
