Throughout the summer months in New Jersey, you need to be able to keep your home cool and comfortable. At Service Today, our Princeton Heating Contractors¬†offer a number of services to help you keep your air conditioner in the best condition possible, whether you need emergency repairs or preventative maintenance. Like all major appliances, the machinery of your AC can develop some problems, and no matter how big or small those problems are, they’ll have a huge effect on your home’s comfort and energy efficiency levels.

Here are a few problems that homeowners frequently encounter with their air conditioning systems. If you believe that any of these parts of your AC have developed problems contact our professionals for an inspection of your HVAC system.

Compressor Issues

If your air conditioner is experiencing any problems, it’s very likely that it’s being caused by problems with the compressor. The compressor sends cooled air into the ducts to be distributed throughout your New Jersey home. Anything that restricts the airflow in your ducts will make it more difficult for your compressor to function, and that will raise your energy costs.

Condenser Problems

The condenser removes hot air from your home. If you place your hand near the condenser, you should be able to feel hot air coming out. If you cannot, you have a problem.

Faulty Wiring

If the wiring for your air conditioner has any problems, it can cause your AC to not function well, or it could even be a very risky fire hazard. Bad wiring will either prevent the AC system from getting the power that it needs, or it will trip your New Jersey home’s circuits.

The Coil Is Frozen

A frozen coil is most frequently an issue the airflow. Restrictions of air can be caused by dirty air filters or obstructed ducts. Any airflow problems can cause the coils to freeze, and they can also be caused by low refrigerant levels.

Low Refrigerant

If your New jersey home’s AC has low refrigerant levels, it was either undercharged at installation, or it has been leaking. If the refrigerant is leaking, you cannot simply add more. You should always rely on an HVAC contractor to fix the leak, test the repair, and then add the correct levels of refrigerant.

Refrigerant leaks can also be harmful to the environment, so it’s important to have this problem repaired as soon as possible.
