What Causes My AC to Break?

Knowing what caused your unit’s failure will make it much easier and faster to repair. Some of the most common causes of AC unit malfunctions or damages include:

Leaks in the Refrigerant – This is usually caused by undercharging during the installation or by leaky pipes. Either way, contact a trained technician for repairs.

Poor Maintenance – It is essential to keep your appliances, systems, and units in top working order. This requires scheduled maintenance checks. Irregular check-ups lead to dust and dirt buildup that can clog the fans, reduce the functionality of your unit, and create damages. Regular cleanings will remedy the situation.

Electric Control Failure – Turning your unit on and off can wear out the compressor and fan controls. This causes the wires and terminals within your unit to corrode, leading to electrical failure. You should contact professionals to fix this problem.

Sensor Problems – This sensor is located behind the unit’s control panel and measures the temperature of air coming into the evaporative coil. If this system is damaged or removed, your AC unit could cycle constantly or behave erratically.

Drainage Problems – This happens most frequently during humid weather. Always check the condensate drain to make sure it isn’t clogged.
