Common Air Conditioning Repair Needs

Are you frustrated by inadequate cooling during the high heat and humidity of the summer months? While no two homes are exactly alike, and therefore all air conditioning systems have their small differences, there are several common air conditioning issues that you may encounter during the service life of your cooling system. Smart Systems is here to help with any of your Poughkeepsie air conditioning repair needs. Call us today if you want excellent service.

Let’s take a look at a few common problems:

  • Frozen evaporator coils. If you notice that the evaporator coil inside the air handler has frozen over, then you may also notice that your energy expenditure is higher than normal and your performance is subpar. A frozen evaporator coil can get in the way of the natural cooling cycle, which allows the evaporator to absorb the thermal energy from the indoor air and cool it during the process. It is most likely caused by an airflow problem, such as a clogged air filter.
  • Bad capacitor. The capacitor functions a bit like the battery or starter in your car in that it’s responsible for providing a boost during startup. Your compressor relies on it to initiate the refrigerant cycle. But it’s subject to wear and tear, as well as potential damage from moisture, and your AC may not turn on if it has a bad capacitor.
  • Dirty condenser coils. Due to their outside location, your condenser coils are subject to more wear and tear and dirt than the indoor coils. Over time, this can reduce energy efficiency and cause performance issues. A professional needs to clean your coils because of their proximity to other sensitive components.
