Common Problems That Lead to Air Conditioning Service

In Foothill Ranch, there are a few common problems that lead homeowners to request White Mechanical, Inc. for air conditioning service. We’ve pulled them together for you, so you know what to watch for and what could be creating the issues.

Lack of maintenance—If you’ve forgotten to schedule routine air conditioner service, you could have to be paying for it in avoidable repairs. Your air conditioner can’t operate efficiently if its filters and coils become obstructed up with dirt and debris. In fact, this problem often leads to compressors and fans dying prematurely. It’s important to always setup your yearly air conditioner service with White Mechanical, Inc. and take a look at your air filters to avert this problem.

Leaking refrigerant—Leaking refrigerant can cause several problems, including a frozen coil. Sadly, you can’t repair a refrigerant leak by adding more refrigerant. This problem needs to be dealt with by an expert who can repair the leak and check to make sure it’s accurately fixed. He or she can also charge your system with the precise amount of refrigerant your air conditioner’s manufacturer identifies, which will ensure that your air conditioner is functioning at its best.

Problems with outdoor unit—Sometimes the outside fan fails to run properly, which obstructs heat transfer and can prompt your air conditioner to overheat and even damage the compressor. If the full outdoor unit fails to work, you could have a problem with wiring or your thermostat.

Thermostat issues—It’s not unusual for homeowners to need air conditioner repairs that stem from trouble with their thermostat. Whether it’s a programming problem or an issue with the sensor or wiring, your technician can help.
