Keep Your Eye Out: Most Common AC Unit Repairs

Be aware of these two common AC repairs.


Air conditioning repairs are more common than you think, requiring time and costing you money, which is why preventative maintenance on your HVAC system is essential. With the hottest months of the year upon us, it’s important to be aware of these two most common AC repairs that require immediate attention:

1. Refrigerant Leaks

Air conditioners use liquid refrigerant to cool the air that it circulates throughout your home. Sometimes those lines that pump the refrigerant leak; this prevents the AC from doing its job. Don’t DIY refrigerant issues! It is volatile, and only an HVAC technician should handle it. Proper and regular preventative maintenance is of the utmost importance. If a leak occurs, call for repair right away to ensure that your home remains cool and comfortable.

2. Broken Fan

Fans are the unsung heroes of the air conditioning unit. They are usually behind the scenes, but they are integral to making sure you and your family remain cool all summer long. When they aren’t performing at their optimal level, the difference in cool air quality is immediately noticeable. If you think your system may be having fan problems, it’s critical that you reach out to a qualified technician immediately. Broken fans lead to compressor failure, which can lead to your entire system failing.  

These are just a few of the common problems that air conditioning systems often suffer. Preventative maintenance can help prevent them.
