Common AC Problems

Below are some of the more common reasons that your air conditioning system may be having issues and what you can do to resolve them.

1) Insulation Installed Improperly

For inspection and to schedule proper insulation installation, contact Expert Air today.

2) AC Condenser Unit Not Maintained

Ensure proper lawn maintenance surrounding your AC unit. Keep an eye out for debris and clean it regularly.

3) Thermostat Issues

If your thermostat and HVAC system aren’t communicating properly, it could be the reason your AC isn’t working properly. For your thermostat repair, replacement, upgrades, and installations, contact us today.

4) Airflow Insufficiency

Change out your air filter when needed, usually every 3-4 months. If you have pets or someone in your home has allergies, you can do this more frequently. You may need a duct cleaning or fan testing.

5) Electrical Issues

Check your breakers, flip them off and back on again

6) Frozen Air Handler

Check behind your AC unit and inspect the evaporator coils. Frozen coils will cause the air to be hot. To thaw the frozen coils, turn off your AC unit for 24 hours. Once defrosted, check the coils to see if they are dirty, and clean them if needed. If that doesn’t work, you might need to contact an HVAC professional for AC maintenance.

7) Low Refrigerant

Refrigerant is required to produce cool air, just like in your car. You must hire a professional HVAC technician to install and dispose of used refrigerant.
