Your Home AC Repair, Spring

There’s a few things you probably don’t know about your AC Repair, Spring, Texas, that you need to know in order to make the best decision when it comes to getting your repairs done. Most air conditioning problems are common enough that a certified AC repairman can do them quite easily.

Air conditioners’ most common condition is that they’ll run without actually cooling the air. There are a variety of potential problems that could be at fault. Perhaps there’s a short somewhere that is preventing the compressor from coming online. Perhaps the compressor is burnt out, or the startup capacitor has gone bad. Maybe it’s an issue with installation. The wide variety of potential problems is one of the good reasons why only certified repairmen should be called upon to do your AC or heating repair, Spring.

Of course, there are more problems AC units can suffer, as well. Maybe your unit is leaking. That could be because the drain is clogged, or because a ball bearing broke and locked up your air conditioner, or one of the evaporator coil pans got rusty. If you suspect a problem, go outside to the machine itself and listen — if you can’t hear the compressor running, that’s why your house is getting too warm.

An AC unit works like a refrigerator. The freon inside travels through an expansion valve where it expands (surprise!), and as it expands, it gets cold. Then the cold freon is run through a series of coils. A fan pulls air past the supercooled coils, and the result is cold air that gets blasted all over your home. The freon gas then warms, condenses into a liquid, falls, and recollects — only to get pushed through the expansion valve again for another cycle. The freon is completely sealed off from the outside world and should never need cleaning or replacing.

That said, sometimes a unit that needs AC repair Spring-s a leak (bad joke, I know) and starts losing freon. Oftentimes the leak is slow enough that it takes weeks to have a noticeable effect. Sometimes the vacuum hose wasn’t installed properly, sometimes the braze welding wasn’t done to spec — again, more reason to call in a certified Spring AC repairman like the ones at Ambient Heating and Cooling.
