So it’s hot outside and now your AC is not helping by blowing hot air, but why. There are a few common issues that can cause this Air Conditioner Repair problem. We’ll start with the most common reasons first.

Air Conditioning Repair Service

1. If you have forgotten to replace your filter lately it could be dirty. Dirty enough to cause reduced air flow across the evaporator coil. Not regularly replacing the filter can also cause the coil to get stopped up with dirt/dust. If the coil is the issue, you will need a professional to come out and clean it.

Dirty filters/coils can also cause the coil to freeze up if the air flow is reduced significantly.

2. AC low on refrigerant. If this is the case you could have a small leak in the system. Could be in one of three areas, in the (indoor) evap coil, refrigerant lines or (outside) condenser coil/unit.

3. AC (condenser) coil could be clogged up with grass clippings, dirt, lent from dryer vent or blocked by plants/items. A clogged up condenser coil will drastically effect the efficiency that it can dissipate the heat from the refrigerant.

These three common issues can be avoided or solved with a bi-annual maintenance agreement. Regular maintenance will reduce costly breakdowns and lower utility bills.
