Air conditioners fail for a number of reasons. Sometimes, the culprit might be minor: Perhaps a wire that supplies power is loose, or maybe an air filter is clogged. If the culprit involves the AC’s air compressor, however, the issue might be much more serious, requiring immediate and expert AC repair.
What is an air compressor?
The air compressor is the heart of any air conditioning unit. Much like a heart, it is integral to the functioning of the machine. When the system undergoes stress or strain, the compressor may suffer and break down. Such issues can sometimes be difficult to identify and fix.
What causes air compressor failure?
Suction line blockage
If your unit does not seem to be cooling as efficiently, refrigerant lines might be damaged or blocked. This can result in an increase in temperature and pressure, causing the system to overheat.
Wrong suction line size
Sometimes, an inexperienced technician may inadvertently install or replace incorrect suction lines, resulting in leaks and, ultimately, failure.
Insufficient or excessive refrigerant
If the unit’s refrigerant lines can sometimes acquire cracks or holes that cause it to leak. This results in the compressor straining to maintain pressure, eventually resulting in failure. Similarly, too much refrigerant causes an increase in pressure, overloading the compressor.
Wrong kind of refrigerant
This is another mistake we sometimes see caused by inexperienced technicians. Filling a unit with the incorrect kind of refrigerant can often have deadly results for the machine. Remember: There’s never a reason to settle for a lesser air conditioning repair service.
Not enough lubricant
If the system is not semi-regularly maintained by a professional, the lubricant levels may fall, resulting in issues with the unit. Oil is necessary to many of the system’s functions, and a trained professional will be able to check to make sure that the oil pump is in good condition and that the lubricant levels are correct.
Though it may seem obvious, never underestimate the power of nature to mess with your utilities. Everything from moisture, leaves, dirt, soot to animal waste can get caught up in AC units. Trust us – we have seen everything.
If a system’s condenser coils collect too much grime and dust, the unit will not be able to release heat efficiently enough to cool your building. This will eventually cause the machine to overheat.
Lastly, electrical problems like surges or faulty wiring can wreak havoc on an AC unit. Electrical failures might cause the system to build up an excess of acids, causing sometimes irreversible damage to the machine.
Unfortunately, a broken AC unit cannot always be resuscitated. Replacement may be the only solution. In such cases, besides AC repair, we also offer expert replacement and installation services.
