Should I Schedule AC Repair This Late in the Summer

 

When your air conditioner shuts down, the Tucson weather probably leads you to call an air conditioning technician right away. However, when you notice smaller air conditioning repair needs, but you still feel cool air in your home, you may think that it’s okay to wait it out and call for repairs next season. Waiting for repairs is problematic because small repair needs may turn into larger problems later on. Here are some examples of problems that simply cannot wait until the next cooling season.

  • Low Refrigerant: There are many signs that your air conditioner may have low refrigerant, such as a hissing noise or limited cooling. If you wait too long to schedule AC repair, low refrigerant can cause many different problems for your AC. Air conditioners are designed to hold a certain level of refrigerant according to the size of your home and system, so low levels may cause certain components to fail. For example, the compressor often cannot perform properly with too little refrigerant, and compressor damage usually involves major repair work.
  • Dirty Coil: The indoor and outdoor coil of your air conditioning system both help with the heat exchange process, removing heat from your home and releasing it outdoors. A dirty coil interferes with this process, limiting the amount of cool air that enters your home.
  • Damaged Fan: The fan in your air conditioner helps with the heat exchange process and helps distribute cool air throughout your home. A faulty motor or damaged blade means you may be unable to feel any cool air or your home may never reach the proper temperature. A damaged fan may lead to problems such as a frozen evaporator coil.

When you experience a problem with your air conditioner, waiting to schedule repairs is not worth the risk. A sudden breakdown may leave you without air conditioning at the hottest time of year, and you may end up paying a lot more for repairs than you would for a smaller repair right now.
