Top Reasons for an A/C Unit Breakdown

Air Conditioning, HVAC | 0 comments

Like most people, AC maintenance is the last thing on your mind until a severe problem or a breakdown occurs. We know that not a lot of individuals are as excited and enthusiastic about AC’s as much as we are. Trust me, we understand, and that is why we’re here to help. So, some of our Five Star technicians at Lebanon Heating & Cooling list a few of the most common reasons for an A/C breakdown.  

Refrigerant Leaks

Another reason your AC may not be operating efficiently is because of low levels of refrigerant within the system. If you notice a leak, it should be repaired by a licensed technician ASAP, especially since the A/C refrigerant is extremely harmful to the environment.

Neglecting Routine Maintenance  

We cannot emphasize enough that regular routine maintenance is essential for the lifespan and production of your AC system. A professional technician is able to detect possible issues before they take place. At a minimum, once a year, your AC should be inspected and condenser coils cleaned thoroughly. When an A/C is neglected, it can ruin your manufacturer’s warranty and become voided out, especially if you experience an issue that would have been covered under the warranty. 

Malfunctioning Thermostat

If you own a thermostat that is not working properly, your AC could be overworking itself, costing you energy and money. Fortunately, with the help of modern technology, thermostats have come a long way. Today’s ‘smart’ thermostats can be set on your mobile device. Additionally, you can schedule when to set the temperature you home at certain times of the day.
