It’s easy to put off AC repairs. Your air conditioner begins to make an unusual sound and you have all the best intentions to call for service, but time gets away from you. Days turn into weeks and weeks turn into months.

You can avoid a complete breakdown by scheduling an appointment for AC repair in Hagerstown, MD while your air conditioner is still operating. Keep reading to learn more about AC problems that you want to get fixed sooner rather than later.
Refrigerant is crucial to the cooling process inside your air conditioner. If the line has a leak, you will notice that cooling ability slows down until your home is no longer comfortable anymore. Your air conditioner will still be blowing air and operating as usual, but the air coming out of your vents will not be cold.
And refrigerant leaks are a problem for more reasons than one. Aside from the chemical itself being potentially harmful to your home and family, it’s also putting a lot of strain on your air conditioner. Your AC will end up running longer and harder in an attempt to cool your home without ever producing the results. This can put a lot of extra strain on the system, potentially leading to more damage and more repairs.
Clogged Drain Line
If your condensate drain line gets clogged, it will begin to leak water into the condensate drain pan. Many homeowners think the leak is not a huge deal if it’s a small amount of water. But a clog will not break down on its own and the situation will only worsen over time. All that moisture is released into your home as humidity, making your home feel warmer than it really is.
There are preventative steps that you can take to keep a clog from ever happening, but once you have one you definitely want to call our professionals to fix it. Once we do eliminate a clog from the condensate drain line, we can talk to you about homeowner maintenance steps that you can take to prevent clogs from happening again in the future.
And sometimes your air conditioner is not actually the problem at all. It’s possible that your air conditioner is working great to produce cold air for your home, but that air is escaping through your ductwork. When this happens, you need to schedule duct services such as duct sealing and duct cleaning.
The holes that are allowing air to escape or also allowing dust and dirt in. Ideally, you want to wipe down the interior surfaces of your ducts to illuminate this dust and dirt. Then, we can seal all the ducts to prevent air from escaping again. This helps to ensure that all of the cool air produced by your air conditioner, actually makes it into the walls of your home.
