Your air conditioning system has been working hard to cool your Awendaw, South Carolina, home through the hot summer days and nights. If an HVAC service technician performed preventive AC maintenance on your system earlier in the cooling season, chances are it’ll operate without problems. But if you skipped this vital service, you’ll likely to experience problems. Here are three issues that you might notice that’ll require an emergency air conditioner repair:
A refrigerant leak is harmful to human health and the environment. If your air conditioning system starts leaking refrigerant, you’ll notice temperature fluctuations in your home. Unfortunately, finding and fixing the refrigerant leak isn’t a do-it-yourself AC repair. A qualified service technician should find and fix the leak, and they should charge the air conditioner with the right amount of refrigerant. The cost of the repair will depend on the location of the leak.
An air conditioner’s compressor applies energy to the refrigerant and pushes it through the coils to effectuate the heat exchange. If the compressor in your air conditioning system stops working, you won’t be able to enjoy a cool and comfortable home. You’ll likely hear squealing or grinding noises that indicate your AC compressor is breaking down. Since a compressor is a complex part, it’s often better that a service technician replaces instead of repairs it.
Clogged Drain Line
Like your air conditioner’s filter, the condensate drain line can become clogged with dust, dirt and other debris. When the drain line clogs, the pan will fill up and eventually overflow. The excess water can damage your air conditioner and any property around the condensate drain pan. When it’s humid outside, check the drain for clogs. If you find that your condensate drain pan has clogged, you’ll likely require an emergency air conditioner repair right away.
