Common Midsummer AC Repairs
No one likes to think about their air conditioner breaking down, especially in the middle of the summer when temperatures are hot. Unfortunately, midsummer AC repairs are relatively common, as this is the time of year when the AC is working the hardest. Fortunately, our team of professionals at Van Drunen Heating & Air Conditioning is available to provide fast and reliable repairs. To learn more about common midsummer AC repairs and how we can help, reach us today.
Common AC Breakdowns in the Summertime
The following outlines some of the most common AC breakdowns in the summertime. Of course, this list is not inclusive–if you’re facing an issue that’s not listed, call us directly for repairs you can trust!
- Leaks of refrigerant. If your AC is low on refrigerant and things aren’t feeling very cool, chances are that you have a leak. In fact, most ACs come with enough refrigerant to last for their entire lifetime, so if you don’t have enough, it’s probably being lost somewhere. Our team can assess for leaks and, if we discover one, repair it immediately.
- Fan belt issues. The fan belt is a key component of an AC unit may be one of the simplest parts, but is also one of the most critical. Fortunately, if the fan belt wears down, replacing it is a relatively easy and low-cost fix.
- Clogged condensate lines. One way to visually determine if a condensate line is clogged is to look for leaking water around your AC unit. Poor AC performance can be another clue. If your condensate lines are clogged, getting them cleaned ASAP is important for your AC’s performance and efficiency.
- Major component failures. In addition to the above repair issues, sometimes, a major component of an AC unit fails, resulting in the necessity of part replacement. At Van Drunen Heating & Air Conditioning, we have been in the AC business for over 50 years and feel confident in our ability to repair or replace any AC part.
