Lack of maintenance—If you’ve forgotten to schedule regular air conditioner service, you could wind up paying for it in unnecessary repairs. Your air conditioner can’t work properly if its filters and coils become obstructed up with dirt and debris. Actually, this problem often precedes compressors and fans failing prematurely. It’s critical to always schedule your yearly air conditioner service with B&D Air Conditioning and inspect your air filters to prevent this problem. Leaking refrigerant—Leaking refrigerant can cause several problems, including a frozen coil. Alas, you can’t correct a refrigerant leak by increasing refrigerant. This problem needs to be controlled by a professional who can fix the leak and check to make sure it’s truly repaired. He or she can also charge your system with the precise amount of refrigerant your air conditioner’s manufacturer specifies, which will make sure that your air conditioner is working at its best. Problems with outdoor unit—Sometimes the external fan fails to operate as it should, which hinders heat transfer and can cause your air conditioner to overheat and even damage the compressor. If the full outdoor unit shuts down, you could have a problem with wiring or your thermostat.
