Common Types of A/C Repairs
Don’t let a bad air conditioner ruin your summer! If you’re having issues with your residential air conditioning system, it might be a result of one of the issues we list below:
Home cooling systems utilize refrigerants to generate cool air, which enables the system to run efficiently, releasing heat from the air to cool it. Air conditioners come charged with refrigerants when they’re installed. Nevertheless, a poor charge or a refrigerant leak can cause the unit’s refrigerant level to drop below the proper amount needed. To correct this, our NATE-certified technicians can recharge your refrigerant, which should only be done by a professional, accompanied by repairing the leak that caused it to begin with.
It is important that the technician performing your home AC repair charges your AC with the proper amount of refrigerant. The manufacturer will specify this amount — correct refrigerant charge allows your cooling system to perform accurately and efficiently.
An air conditioner’s cooling process causes condensation, which usually flows away from the equipment. However, if there is a clog in the drip pan or condensate drain lines, or if outdoor humidity levels are high, moisture may back up into your air conditioning equipment. Excess condensation will increase indoor humidity levels and affect the air conditioner’s performance negatively. It can also cause damage to your unit’s various components.
To repair this, we closely inspect the underlying drip pan and all condensate lines. These lines will be cleared of clogs, and may be treated for algae growth to prevent future clogs. If the AC’s components have been damaged, we show you and offer you an estimate to repair the damaged equipment.
Broken Compressor Fan
Your home cooling system’s outside unit houses your fan, compressor and condenser coils. These essential parts work to release heat from the air, transferring it out of your home to produce a cool indoor climate inside. If the outdoor fan isn’t working properly, the heat transfer process is inhibited. This prevents your AC from adequately cooling your residence, while a broken fan can cause the unit’s compressor to overheat. An overheated compressor could trip the air conditioner’s safety features, causing your air conditioner to shut down. Additionally, overheating can also damage the compressor itself, which is an expensive part, requiring an A/C repair or compressor replacement.
If you call us, we can diagnose the issue preventing the outdoor fan from working like it should. Your fan will be replaced or repaired depending on your need, and the outdoor unit will be inspected to assess whether the issue has caused further system damage.
Frozen Condenser Coils
If your condenser coils are frozen, your air conditioner won’t run properly. Poor airflow through your cooling system can cause ice to form on the AC coils. Usually, blockages are the culprit here — like dirty air filters or blocked return air ducts. Low refrigerant could also be the reason for frozen coils, which means you’ll need a professional to recharge your refrigerant levels. In any case, our AC repair technicians can diagnose the problem causing frozen coils, resolve it, and safely thaw your coils to restore cooling in your home.

A/C Troubleshooting Tips
If your A/C gives out on a summer day, it can have your whole house roasting in no time. Below we explore some of the most common types of air conditioning problems a homeowner might encounter. If you’re experiencing any issues like these, the following Do-It-Yourself A/C troubleshooting tips and repair techniques are worth checking into:
Typically, poor air flow is the result of a bad or dirty air filter, or ductwork that has become crimped, blocked, disconnected or compromised in some way.
- Make sure your A/C air filter is clean. If it’s dirty, clean or replace it.
- Check all your ductwork to make sure it’s not disconnected, including ductwork that may be difficult to reach, like in your attic, basement and crawl spaces. Repair or connect as needed. If professional help is needed, call us.
- Check register dampers on vents in the rooms to make sure they are set to an open position.
Bear in mind, cleaning your home cooling system is something you can usually do on your own, as long as you have a basic comprehension of the different components of your system. However, there comes a point when you should definitely seek professional help. These are very intricate and expensive systems, afterall. If you’ve already done basic A/C troubleshooting and your A/C problem still persists, give us a call and we’ll walk you through what to do next.
A/C is On But Not Cooling
If your central AC is running but it isn’t providing sufficiently cool air, something could be blocking airflow in your system somewhere. Areas to consider include air filters, registers and compressors. Moreover, low refrigerant levels could also be the culprit. Without the adequate refrigerant, heat and humidity cannot be removed from the air efficiently.
- Check the thermostat to make sure it’s working properly.
- Take a look at the condenser to see if it’s dirty or blocked. If so, clean it and remove the blockage. The condenser can become blocked by tall weeds, grass, or other airborne debris.
- Clean and/or change your filter (We recommend once a quarter.)
- See if any ice has formed on the coils. If so, turn the fan on to melt it.
- Check and/or clean the outdoor compressor. You could have a faulty compressor or an inadequate amount of refrigerant in the system, which would require a professional to fix.
A/C Won’t Turn On
If you can’t get your unit to turn on, it could be from a blown circuit breaker or fuse. An internal switch could be off, or your thermostat could be improperly set or faulty.
- Make sure it’s getting power from the electrical panel.
- Reset the circuit break or replace the fuse.
- Check your thermostat settings to make sure it’s set on “cool” and not set to “off” or “heat.”
- Check for excessive water in your condensate overflow tray. There may be a sensor on your tray that turns the unit off when water pools up.
- Check that all switches in and around the air conditioner are set to the “on” position, including the external safety switch that’s typically located near the condensing unit.
- Check to make sure the blower door on the air handler is securely closed.

Should I Replace My A/C, or Repair?
If you’re not sure whether to replace your air conditioner or go ahead and pay for the repairs, we outline below the top factors you should consider in making this sometimes challenging decision:
Air Conditioner Age
When an A/C gets older than 10 years old, it might be time to begin planning for replacement. Having said that, it’s obvious there are more factors than just age but this can be a good guide to whether you should start considering something new or not. Factors you should consider with the unit’s age include the equipment’s reliability, it’s history and efficiency, and how well it has been maintained over the years.
Often, home cooling systems that are more than 10 years old are outdated in terms of energy efficiency, so your current A/C could be costing more on your utility bills. For help determining how much you can save, give us a call!
Cost of Repairs
This is generally the main factor when looking for something new. A lot of experts recommend a new furnace and new air conditioner if the repair is more than $800. But, if the system is only 6 years old, $800 doesn’t seem that bad of an investment to squeeze a few more years of life out of your system. With this in mind, it’s good to look at both the age and the cost of the repair. If the home cooling system is more than 10 years old and it’s going to cost more than $800 to repair you should take a serious look at replacing the unit
There’s also the 50 Percent Rule: When the cost of repairs approaches 50 percent of the value of the unit, it’s usually time to replace the system.
