AC repair in Windsor, CO

Identifying Common Residential AC Repair Issues

June 30, 2020

During the summer in Windsor, CO, running your air conditioning on a daily basis can become expensive. One of the most common reasons for the higher cost is an aging AC unit. In fact, even upgrading a 10-year-old HVAC system can save you an average of 20% to 40% on your overall cooling costs.

What if you’ve recently had a new AC unit professionally installed but still experience issues? In such a situation, you may be experiencing one of the common problems that plague residential AC units. Below are a few circumstances when professional AC repair is required.

Refrigerant Leaks

One of the most common AC repair issues that homeowners experience is refrigerant leaks. If your unit is low on refrigerant, it’s either leaking or wasn’t charged properly during installation. Leaks can develop as a result of wear and tear from general use. A professional can check the refrigerant levels and perform any necessary AC repair services.

Irregular AC Repair and Maintenance

Most homeowners take a hands-off approach when it comes to maintaining their AC units. Too often, they don’t do any maintenance until a problem arises. However, air filters and condenser coils get dirty over time. This hinders the performance of AC systems.

While changing your HVAC filter is simple and something that you should do every one to three months, it’s best to leave general upkeep to a professional. It’s recommended that you schedule a professional to perform general HVAC maintenance on your system at least twice a year.

Thermostat Sensor Problems

Your thermostat is the head of your entire HVAC system. If it’s not working properly, your AC won’t work properly either. When the sensor within the thermostat gets knocked out of position, the AC unit can behave erratically. Thankfully, a professional can bend the sensor back into place with ease.

While you can solve some general maintenance issues yourself, most AC repair problems require the expertise of experienced service technicians to ensure that the job gets done right. If you’re unsure whether your issue requires professional service, you can learn more about when to contact an expert on A to Z Heating & Cooling’s AC repair services page, or reach out to our helpful staff.
