Summer is what air conditioners were designed for. You depend on your air conditioner to keep you cool when the temperatures are blazing outside. Unfortunately, sometimes the A/C can let you down. Some common A/C problems in Utah pop up from time to time for homeowners – problems that may require the attention of your trusted Utah A/C repair specialists.
Common A/C Problems in Utah Summertime
1. Low refrigerant
Ideally, your air conditioner will never run out of coolant. The system is supposed to be sealed. However, real life can upset expectations and you can get a leak. When that happens, you will slowly lose coolant.
There are specific regulations regarding coolant that your Utah A/C repair specialists are well aware of. We will adhere to all the rules when replacing your coolant and repairing any leaks.
2. Dirty air filters
Your HVAC system pulls air through a filter before it pushes it throughout your home. That’s a good thing because it protects you from contaminants, allergens, and more. Air filters fill up over time, though. The more you use the A/C and the dirtier the conditions, the faster they get used up.
Most people can replace their air filters. However, our team is happy to do it for you if needed.
3. Capacitor problems
Run capacitors issues are one of the more common A/C problems in Utah in newer air conditioners. The run capacitor helps your fan motor and compressor motors get started. If the run capacitor fails, then the motors will struggle to start up and may shut down on you. The longer you use your air conditioner without a working run capacitor, the more strain you will put on the motor. If the motor fails, it will cost quite a bit to fix. It’s better to identify the capacitor problem early on and fix it than to wait and replace the motor.
We can quickly replace the capacitor if necessary.
4. Motor failure
Unfortunately, motors can and do fail in air conditioners. Fixing this problem is one of the most expensive A/C repairs there is. Every problem on this list can increase the likelihood of motor failure, which is why we encourage homeowners to sign up for regular servicing of their air conditioners.
5. Drain clogs
Your air conditioner accumulates water as it cools the air. It drains that water through a tube into a basin with a drain. Sludge can build up and clog the tube and the drain. Luckily, cleaning these things is easy for us.
