Common AC issues to look out for include:
Many issues can be prevented with regular AC maintenance that allows our team to see potential issues or worn-out parts before they become a problem. Low airflow and capacitor failure are just a few examples of preventative issues that can be avoided with maintenance. A clogged filter often causes inadequate airflow; this overheats your components and prevents your unit from adequately sensing the temperature in your home, causing it to cycle constantly. Overworking components because of a lack of airflow often leads to capacitor failure and a replacement unit.
If your HVAC unit has separate heating and cooling units, your AC system is at risk of freezing during the winter when it’s not in use. This is usually caused by cold and dirty evaporator coils that prevent warm air from reaching the refrigerant. You can try to thaw the lines by turning on the fan by itself, but if you continue to experience issues trust our professionals for expert AC repair in Orange County. Unpleasant odors like mold, burning, or a sweet smell are signs of significant problems with your system. Turn your unit off as soon as you notice these smells and schedule service before using your unit again.
When your AC system is no longer cooling your home reliably, it can be difficult to troubleshoot issues and trust DIY solutions. That’s why our team has answered these common questions.
Why Is my Unit Freezing Up?
If you notice ice on the evaporator coils, they may need to be cleaned; you have a clogged filter preventing airflow or a refrigerant leak. Try to unfreeze the coils by turning on the fan without turning on the AC, as this can help our professionals find the source of the issue.
How can I troubleshoot my unit before calling the pros?
You should begin troubleshooting every issue by checking the filter and changing it if it is clogged. Also, look for flipped breakers or a dead thermostat. If this doesn’t solve the problem, count on 20th Century Air for expert AC repair services in Orange County for quality service.
When should I replace instead of repair?
Knowing when to invest in a new unit instead of a repair can be difficult. We recommend not paying for one or more repairs in a short period that costs more than $2,500, as this is half the price of a new system. When repairs aren’t providing long-lasting solutions, it’s time to replace your AC instead of repair.
