As we move closer and closer to summer, homeowners are going to start using their air conditioners on a daily basis to keep comfortable. That translates into a lot of strain on the system, which means more problems occurring. If you want to keep your air conditioner in the best possible shape, you should be able to identify problems with the system as quickly as possible so that you can call for repairs. Read on to find out more about the kinds of air conditioning problems you’re likely to face this summer.
Air conditioners operate by evaporating and condensing refrigerant to move heat from one place to another. The system evaporates refrigerant to absorb heat in your home’s air, then condenses it to vent the heat outside. The amount of refrigerant in the system always remains the same during this process, as it is simply recycled back and forth between the two units. If a leak develops in the refrigerant line, though, it can drain the system of the fluid that it needs to operate. This will eventually lead to a breakdown in the system. If your air conditioner is leaking fluid, call for repairs right away.
The compressor is a part designed to pump refrigerant gas from the evaporator coil to the condenser coil. This part is designed to only handle refrigerant in gaseous form, and is vital to the operation of the system. If liquid refrigerant makes it into the compressor, as can sometimes happen due to problems elsewhere in the system, it can seriously damage the part. Without a properly working compressor, the air conditioner cannot function. The part will need to be repaired or replaced for the good of the system.
