As long as you’ve got a team of reliable professionals near you (like us!) then you can get any common AC repair done for an affordable price. Our team specializes in the following 3 common air conditioning service in Rockford, MI. Just take a deep breath and read on to learn more.

Knowledge Is Power

When we talk about “common air conditioning problems,” we mean issues that we see a lot. The good news in this kind of a situation is that we know exactly what’s wrong with your air conditioner, and how to help. We can also give you some tips on how to avoid these common problems in the future so that you don’t have to call for professional support as often! Whatever the solution may be, our number is listed above so you can give us a call at any moment.

1. Refrigerant Leaks

Refrigerant leaks are a pretty common concern with air conditioning units. Conventional air conditioners rely on refrigerant to cool the space in a home, so when refrigerant starts to leak, the system can start to exhibit all sorts of weird or interesting behaviors. For starters, you might hear a bubbling or hissing sound come from the unit itself. The bubbling is the sound air bubbles make when they’ve infiltrated the airtight lines. The hissing noise is just gaseous refrigerant escaping out of the lines themselves.

Also, keep in mind that a refrigerant leak might occur quietly, but you’ll still be able to notice it. High energy bills, poor comfort control in your home, and a struggling air conditioner can all be symptoms of a refrigerant leak problem.

2. Blower Motor Failures

The blower motor component is responsible for sending the cooled air into the rooms of your home through your ductwork. If the blower motor malfunctions or stops working entirely, then your home’s temperature is going to suffer. If you hear what sounds like a malfunctioning fan coming from your air conditioner, then your blower system, or the blower motor itself, could be in trouble.

3. Thermostat Miscalibrations

Your thermostat acts as the brain of your HVAC system. If the thermostat is set up in the wrong location, or it’s reading the wrong temperature, then it’s going to signal the wrong information to your air conditioner. Basically, this is one of the first places that our team will check when something seems wrong, and it’s usually the most affordable fix to make.
