Troubleshooting Common Air Conditioning Problems

Call Prescott Air Conditioning and Heating to help with your air conditioning problems in Prescott.Remember the days when kids started school after Labor Day? Not any more. Just a few more days and August will be here, and before you know it, the first day of school. The dog days of summer are still here and it’s pretty balmy, even here in the mountains. Prescott Air Conditioning knows just as well as you do, that around here, it can take until the first week of October for the temperatures to really cool down. It’s still possible to experience AC performance issues before then. They can be any of the following:

Low Refrigerant or Leak: Air conditioners are charged with a refrigerant which is the chemical that cools the air within your AC system. A poor charge, or leak can cause the level to drop. The charge is performed by a technician using the proper amount and the correct refrigerant. He will also fix the leak, if necessary. All of this will ensure accurate and efficient performance of your air conditioner.

Drainage Issues: The cooling process causes condensation, which normally flows away through a drain line. If there is a clog or humidity levels are high moisture may back up into the system. This can cause poor performance or damage to the air conditioner’s components. A technician can inspect, clear and treat the lines to prevent algae growth.

Broken Compressor Fan: The compressor, fan, and condenser coils are part of the outdoor unit. These components release heat from the air, transferring it outdoors to produce a cool indoor climate. When the outdoor fan isn’t working correctly, it will prevent your air conditioner from cooling your home. A broken fan can cause the system’s compressor to overheat and that could trigger the air conditioner’s safety controls, turning your air conditioner off. Overheating can also cause damage to the compressor itself, requiring repair or compressor replacement. A specialist will diagnose the issue, assess any damage, and he will repair or replace the fan if necessary.

Frozen Condenser Coils: If your air conditioner’s condenser coils, freeze up, your system will not run properly. Dirty air filters, low refrigerant, blocked return air ducts, or poor airflow through your cooling system can cause ice to form on the coils. A home AC repair technician can diagnose the cause of the frozen coils, resolve it, and safely thaw your coils to restore cooling in your home.

Faulty or Bad Wiring: Improperly installed wiring can prevent air conditioning from getting power. It can also trip the circuit breaker. Wiring performed by a certified technician can prevent risk or fire hazard

Outside Fan is not Functional: The outside fan is responsible for transferring the heat from your home to the outside air. If the fan on the outside unit isn’t performing correctly, proper heat transfer cannot take place and the air conditioning compressor may overheat and trip the safety overload. It could cause internal damage to the compressor.

The Coil is Frozen: A frozen coil often indicates an issue with the airflow; problems caused by dirty air filters or clogged return air duct-work. Frozen indoor coils could also be the result of low refrigerant.

It’s easy for a homeowner to prevent these expected problems with a maintenance program. Bad wiring, low refrigerant and airflow problems can be discovered during routine maintenance. Prescott Air Conditioning can help with these common issues keeping you and every student comfy. Call 928-308-1254 today to schedule a professionally qualified, certified technician that can promptly analyze the problem area and perform the necessary repairs.

5 out of 5 stars Rich and Brenda showed up within an hour of us contacting them, assessed the problem with our furnace, had the broken part on hand (!!! It's a 26 year old furnace!!!). They were extremely friendly, professional, explanatory and obviously care about the work they do. We had quite a few problems, and the 2 other HVAC folks said "just replace the thing" and took a service fee. While Rich tended to agree that it needs replacing, he made sure he got the unit working, inspected and was confident in its safety as a stop gap. Could not recommend them more. It's quite rare to get such thorough, professional.

5 out of 5 stars Brenda and Rich were very helpful. I called and left a message at 10 am on a Saturday, they called back an hour later, and we had our ac up and running by noon that day. Fast, friendly, easy to schedule and reasonably priced. As a local in Prescott I highly recommend them.
