3 Late Summer Repairs You May Need for Your Air Conditioning

Summer still isn’t through with us, and we can expect to keep the cooling systems in our Nashville, TN homes humming for a bit longer. But this is a time to be cautious about air conditioners, because they have just passed through weeks of tough work keeping away the outdoor heat. All that labor can end up creating system malfunctions—and they can’t be ignored until the spring.

We’ve put together a list of some of issues that your air conditioning system may suffer from because of a summer of hard work. Call for Nashville, TN repair technicians to take care of any trouble as soon as possible so you won’t have to deal with a sudden breakdown or a spike in your bills.

Frozen evaporator coil

The evaporator coil is located in the indoor cabinet of the air conditioner; the cold refrigerant inside the coil is what absorbs thermal energy from the air through evaporation and cools down the house interior. If the coil develops too much grime and dirt across it, it will start to freeze over. Although ice may seem like a natural part of the process of air conditioning, it isn’t. Any time ice appears on your AC, you should call on professionals to find what’s wrong.

Burnt-out motors

Motors run the fans and the compressor in the air conditioner, and if one of these breaks down, the AC will not be able to work right. The motors can develop dirt and dust across them over the summer, which increases the strain on their moving parts. If the strain becomes too much, the motor might burn out and need to be replaced. If you hear mechanical grinding and shrieking noises from the air conditioner, call for technicians right away.

Clogged air filter

This is unfortunately common… but fortunately easily avoidable. You need to change/clean the air filter in the AC once a month through the summer. If you don’t, the dust and debris in the filter will become so thick that the clogging will restrict air flow into the unit. This can lead to numerous problems.
