Common Issues Found During AC Maintenance

Similar to any other kind of maintenance, air conditioning maintenance focuses on prevention. Many times an issue found by our technicians during a maintenance appointment is the precursor to a potential bigger problem, including system failure. Here are four of the most common issues we find in air conditioners.

Dirty Fans & Blowers

Does the air conditioner in your home or business cause such a commotion that makes it impossible to forget it’s on? Noisy air conditioners are often the result of fans or blowers struggling to function properly because of dust and dirt buildup. One of the many things a technician from Gordon’s Heating & Air does is cleaning the fans and blowers to avoid future dirt-induced noise.

Terminal Or Contactor Failures

The blower motor, compressor, and condenser fan work together through contactors and terminals. If either part becomes corroded, loosened, or otherwise has an interruption in the electrical current, none of these components will operate. Scheduling regular AC maintenance and repairs is an easy way to get ahead of issues such as this.

Thermostat Malfunctions

Thermostats that are frequently at the center of a temperature tug-of-war in a home or business can begin to malfunction, affecting the rest of the air conditioner. Our NATE-certified technicians make sure that the thermostat is working smoothly and that its sensors are clean.

Refrigerant Leaks

Refrigerant leaks can cause sudden fluctuations in temperature and often goes unnoticed in homes and offices when each person thinks the other is altering the thermostat settings. As a unit loses refrigerant, it has to work harder to try to maintain the set temperature, and this strain can eventually cause a breakdown. Gordon’s Heating & Air will check the refrigerant levels during a tuneup appointment and make any necessary charges or refills.

Importance Of Year-Round Maintenance

The cooling season lasts much longer than the heating season in southeast Georgia. Since we rarely give our air conditioner an extended vacation, the system is at risk of developing tear-and-wear issues. Gordon’s Heating & Air recommends scheduling HVAC check-ups twice a year to allow us the chance to keep the unit functioning efficiently. It also extends the functional lifespan of a residential or light commercial air conditioner and prevents breakdowns that knock the AC offline during the hottest days of the year.

Types Of AC Maintenance We Offer

Light Commercial

A working air conditioner is a necessity for businesses. Employees stay comfortable throughout working hours, and clients and customers walk into a welcoming, cool environment. Since a light commercial AC is built to cool larger areas, a breakdown can require the kind of AC repair business owners dread — the one that forces the business to close until the unit is fixed. Having Gordon’s Heating & Air regularly check the system is a great way to avoid unfavorable downtime.

Residential

A home’s air conditioner can affect indoor air quality. Our NATE-certified technicians clean the dust, dirt, and other minuscule allergens from the unit’s fans and blowers. We’ll also change the air filter, which acts as another layer of protection for you and your loved ones.
