Common Summertime A/C Repairs
For those who live in South Holland and surrounding areas of Illinois, a working air conditioning unit during the summertime is an absolute must. With temperatures reaching near 100 degrees Fahrenheit (and sometimes topping it), and humidity levels being uncomfortably high to boot, not having air conditioning just isn’t an option.
Which is why it’s important to be aware of the fact that even if your A/C is working now, there are a few problems that are more common than others during the summertime. Having a trusted heating and air conditioning professional near you whom you can call for fast services is critical. Here are some of the most common summertime A/C repairs we see – call Van Drunen Heating & Air Conditioning for superior services you can count on:
- Fan Belt Replacements
Fan belt damage is incredibly common, but luckily is easy to prevent with good A/C maintenance. Another positive about fan belt replacements is that these repairs are pretty inexpensive when compared to other A/C repairs, and are easy and fast to fix. If your air conditioning unit isn’t working, the problem may very well be a broken fan belt.
- Leaking Refrigerant
Refrigerant in your A/C is what allows for the air to be cold, rather than just lukewarm. The refrigerant is designed to stay within the A/C unit at all times; if it leaks, this is both problematic for the health of the system and significant of a problem (and you may not get cool air), and it can also be dangerous for human health. If not feel as though your A/C unit isn’t producing as much cool air as it should be, the problem may be leaking refrigerant. Call a professional for an assessment ASAP.
- Clogged Lines
Finally, clogged condensate lines are the third most common problem that our professionals encounter, especially during the summertime when A/C units are working at maximum capacity. The surest sign of clogged lines are leaks, which suggest that due to the clog, water is getting backed up and finding another way out. Fortunately, the problem is usually resolved with a simple cleaning.
