Not Sure What is Wrong With Your AC?

Check out some common issues and what you can do to fix them!

PREVENTABLE

PREVENTABLE

Failure Caused By:

  • Low Refrigerant
  • Refrigerant slugging
  • Short cycling
  • Voltage drop
  • Voltage surge
  • Wear
  • Worn Valves

Why Fix?

  • Critical system component

Recommendations

  • If your equipment is 10 years older, consider replacing it with a more efficient system. PLEASE ask your component technician about the benefits of replacing versus repairing your equipment.
  • Install a 5-2-1 Compressor Saver to both, prolong the life of the run capacitor, condenser fan and compressor, as well as reduce energy consumption
  • Perform annual tune-ups or sign-up for a preventative maintenance plan. An annual tune-up on both the heating and cooling system is recommended to the life of your equipment. The comfort technician will inspect this component as part of the preventative maintenance plan.
  • Replace reversing valve at the time of compressor "burnout". This will save the added cost of re-opening the system and other evacuations, recharge and drier installation.

Failure Caused By:

  • Electrical Short
  • Faulty connection
  • Power surge

Why Fix?

  • Reduces potential property damage

Recommendations

  • Perform annual tune-ups or sign-up for a preventative maintenance plan. An annual tune-up on both the heating and cooling system is recommended to the life of your equipment. The comfort technician will inspect this component as part of the preventative maintenance plan.

DID YOU KNOW

  • Even simple wiring problems can lead to costly repairs or property damage

PREVENTABLE

PREVENTABLE

Failure Caused By:

  • Age
  • Corrosion
  • Plate/ Insulator deterioration
  • Power Surge

Why Fix?

  • Eliminates possible condenser fan failure
  • Reduces possible compressor failure

Recommendations

  • Install a 5-2-1 Compressor Saver to both, prolong the life of the run capacitor, condenser fan and compressor, as well as reduce energy consumption

DID YOU KNOW

  • An abnormally high energy bill is sometimes caused by a weak or failed capacitor
  • Many capacitors lose strength with age

Failure Caused By:

  • Age
  • Corrosion
  • Joint Deterioration
  • Metal Fatigue

Why Fix?

  • Reduce future costly repairs and compressor failure
  • Reduced efficiency

Recommendations

  • If your equipment is 10 years older, consider replacing it with a more efficient system. PLEASE ask your component technician about the benefits of replacing versus repairing your equipment.

DID YOU KNOW

  • A leaking coil can not only lead to compressor failure but also result in a less efficient system which will increase monthly utility bills
  • Most coil leaks are either not repairable or are indicative of a situation where is likely to expect more leaks. Please ask your Comfort Technician about the benefits of replacing versus repairing your equipment.
