2 Common Summer HVAC Problems

Can you avoid heating and air conditioning problems this summer?

We need our heating and air conditioning systems all year long. That’s why when something goes wrong, we really feel it. Here are two common summer HVAC problems, and how you can avoid them:

#1 Air Conditioner Freezes

It seems counterintuitive to think your air conditioner can freeze in the summer, but it’s actually a common problem. There are two main causes for this: a dirty air filter or dirty coils. Air conditioners count on continuous airflow in order to cool your home. When the filter is dirty it prevents proper airflow, which in turn causes the condensation to freeze before it can be drained away. The same thing is true of dirty condenser coils. If the airflow is impeded, the coils freeze. The best way to avoid this is with regular maintenance to ensure proper airflow.

#2 Clogged Condensate Drain

When your air-conditioning system runs, it creates moisture as it cools and dehumidifies the air in your home. This moisture drips off the system and into a condensate drain. A common summer HVAC issue is when the drain gets blocked causing a system leak which can cause serious water damage in your home. To avoid a blocked drain, it’s important to change your air filter regularly to prevent extra dirt and debris from running into the drain. Another way to prevent this is with regular maintenance to make sure your system is draining properly.

There are a lot of things that can go wrong when it comes to mechanical systems such as your HVAC system. With the right maintenance, you can proactively fix and prevent these summertime issues.

It turned out that our painting contractor put a nail through one of the AC lines in our walls and caused a Puron leak. Ernie was able to find the leak and fixed our problem at no charge to us even though it was not his fault and it took him considerable time and effort. His persistence and patience were amazing. This was the most impressive contractor experience that I have ever had.
