Common Problems That Lead to Air Conditioning Service Posted April 27, 2017 In Las Vegas, there are a few common problems that guide homeowners to request Polar Air & Heating, Inc. for air conditioning service. We’ve gathered them together for you, so you know what to look for and what could be causing the issues. Lack of maintenance—If you’ve neglected to schedule routine air conditioner service, you could have to be paying for it in preventable repairs. Your air conditioner can’t run correctly if its filters and coils become obstructed up with dirt and debris. Actually, this problem often precedes compressors and fans failing prematurely. It’s critical to always setup your regular air conditioner service with Polar Air & Heating, Inc. and inspect your air filters to prevent this problem. Leaking refrigerant—Leaking refrigerant can cause a few different complications, including a frozen coil. Alas, you can’t fix a refrigerant leak by adding more refrigerant. This problem needs to be handled by a professional who can mend the leak and test it to make sure it’s truly repaired. He or she can also charge your system with the exact amount of refrigerant your air conditioner’s manufacturer stipulates, which will guarantee that your air conditioner is operating at its best. Problems with outdoor unit—Sometimes the exterior fan fails to work as it should, which impedes heat transfer and can prompt your air conditioner to overheat and even damage the compressor. If the entire outdoor unit stops working, you could have an issue with wiring or your thermostat. Thermostat issues—It’s pretty standard for homeowners to call for air conditioner repairs that originate from issues with their thermostat. Whether it’s a programming problem or an issue with the sensor or wiring, your technician can help.
