4 AC Repairs You May Need This Summer

AC problems tend to come up right when you need your system the most. Why not schedule a maintenance service now so you can prevent these common repairs from coming up this summer?

Sealing Refrigerant Leaks

You’ve likely heard of it referred to as “Freon” but this is a brand name for a specific type of refrigerant. Many people think that a system simply needs more “Freon” when it loses its charge, but the fact is that this does nothing to solve the problem. When refrigerant leaks, it means something is wrong. Since refrigerant is such an important part of an AC system, it is designed to stay within the system throughout its life. And leaky refrigerant lines require sealing.

When refrigerant leaks, your home is not as cool, which is most noticeable in the hottest months. Technicians can check on your refrigerant line during a spring maintenance check so you can get those repairs ahead of time and save yourself the headache.

Cleaning Condensate Lines

Here’s one you definitely want to avoid. Clogged condensate lines can cause water to back up into your home, and all because of a bit of debris and buildup. A leaky air conditioner most likely just needs a cleaning, and this is included with most maintenance services. Don’t let this happen to you. Get your air conditioner checked today!

Replacing a Fan Belt

This is one of the easiest repairs to prevent. When a fan belt wears down, a technician simply needs to take it off and put in a new one. It’s a small part that is usually available and rather inexpensive in the HVAC world. You may notice a fan belt is broken by a squeaking noise in the AC—or you may not. Maintenance can help to detect a broken fan belt early, so you’re not stuck without air conditioning all because of a small faulty part.

Replacing a Major System Component

This is something no homeowner wants to deal with in the middle of summer. Getting a part that is the right match for your equipment can be difficult and it’s likely to be costly. You might end up spending way more than you expected to this summer, so it’s better to find out sooner rather than later.

Call technicians for a maintenance appointment before you need any of these AC repairs. While maintenance may not be 100% effective at preventing repairs, it can reduce your chances and help you learn about AC problems early, so you can plan for the expense.
