Some homeowners never have their air conditioners repaired until the unit stops working entirely. However, even small problems can make a big difference in home comfort, and some air conditioning repairs can improve energy efficiency and might save you money. Repairing issues like refrigerant leaks, dirty evaporators, and clogged condensate drains can make your Cheverly, Maryland, home more comfortable.

Refrigerant Leaks

A refrigerant leak won’t stop your air conditioner from working, but you might notice that the unit stays on longer or that your home doesn’t feel as cool as it should. If the leak goes unchecked, you could also receive higher electric bills because your air conditioner has to work harder to keep your home cool.

If you suspect a leak, don’t buy refrigerant yourself and attempt to top up the levels. You could injure yourself or damage your HVAC system. You also won’t be able to see the leak upon visual inspection or repair it, so refilling the refrigerant won’t solve the problem. Our trained technicians can find the leak, repair the damage, and make sure your system has the proper amount of coolant.

Frozen Evaporator Coils

The evaporator coils on your indoor air conditioning unit can freeze if an obstruction blocks the airflow through the unit. For example, a dirty air filter restricts air flow into the unit, while clogged ductwork prevents air from traveling freely through the home. You might notice that your air conditioner blows lukewarm air, which will reduce home comfort.

Dirty Evaporator Coils

If your air conditioner’s evaporator coils get dirty, your air conditioner might turn on and off continually or blow warmer air through the vents. Both symptoms can lead to discomfort for your family, especially during the warmest days of the summer. Additionally, leaving dirt and dust buildup on the coils could shorten your air conditioner’s lifespan.

Proper air conditioner repair and maintenance will enable you to rely on your AC unit for cool air this summer. To schedule a service visit from one of our HVAC specialists, call Griffith Energy Services Inc. at 888-474-3391.
