You might think that as long as the HVAC system in your Columbia, Maryland, house works, it’s doing fine and you can put off maintenance. When the HVAC system doesn’t get routine maintenance, however, problems pile up until you’re faced with a long list of expensive repairs. To avoid these three costly repairs (and the headaches that go with them), make time for HVAC maintenance.

Faulty Compressor and Coils

The compressor is the AC component responsible for compressing the vaporized refrigerant back into a fluid and pushing it into the coils. The compressor and coils are essential to an efficient AC unit. Replacing the compressor or the coils can cost more than $1,000, and if you have to replace both at the same time, it’ll probably cost several thousand dollars. When your AC isn’t blowing cold, make sure you call a technician immediately to make sure the problem isn’t with the compressor.

Broken Fan Motor

Your outdoor unit has a fan that blows the AC’s hot air exhaust out of your HVAC system. Your outdoor unit can get damaged if too much debris falls into it. If you don’t have time to do some basic cleaning on your outdoor unit (such as removing leaves), you need to call a technician. The fan motor might start to make loud whirring noises before it breaks, but don’t wait until you hear strange sounds coming from your outdoor unit to call a professional.

Major Refrigerant Leak

The refrigerant in your system isn’t supposed to leak. When you’ve got a refrigerant leak, the technician who repairs your system will have to recharge the refrigerant and repair the leak. Worse, refrigerant leaks put more pressure on the condenser and the coils, which means they’ll probably need some attention, too.
