What’s Wrong with Your Air Conditioner?
Here are some common problems that occur with most modern air conditioners, and why you need a reliable AC contractor to come in and fix them.
- Refrigerant – Your AC’s refrigerant is a chemical that cools the air and when it becomes low, your system can’t function as it should. Cal our AC service company if you’re not getting the cold air you’re used to getting.
- Frozen Coils – Frozen coils are fairly common and suggest there’s a problem with the air flow. However, if left unchecked, it could create bigger problems that aren’t so easy to fix.
- Low Air Flow – Check your vents and see if you have adequate airflow. If not, it could mean there’s a problem with the compressor or the blower. Call your AC service company to find out and get it fixed asap.

When to Know You Need Air Conditioning Replacement
Most of us want to avoid expensive home repairs, and getting a new air conditioner is one of those expenses. However, while most problems can be repaired, there are instances where it’s better for you to get a new system. Here are a few rules of thumb to keep in mind.
- If your system is over 20 years old, it’s probably not operating at optimum efficiency and you’ll actually save money with a new, more efficient system.
- If your repairs become more and more frequent, you’re better off putting that money into a new air conditioner.
- If your repair is at least 50% or more of a new unit, then getting new is more economical in the long run.
