7 Common Air Conditioning Issues

January 9, 2024

Air conditioning is all about comfort and safety. When you come home from a July day baseball game or taking the family to an amusement park, you want nothing more than just to sit and relax in your cool air conditioned home.

Families also depend on air conditioning for their relatives’ safety. Having a cooling system is necessary for senior citizens and infants, who are more susceptible to heat stress, exhaustion and stroke.

When your air conditioner breaks down, it is important to get fixed quickly and correctly. Chud Indoor Air Comfort provides high-quality air conditioning repair for the Montgomery County, PA region.


Fixing an AC Unit Outside


The cruel summer heat and humidity can cause many problems for your air conditioner. Listed below are seven common issues.

Seized Fan Motors

A seized fan motor can cause your air conditioner to not properly heat your home. It can also cause internal damage and potentially even a fire.

Loose Electrical Connections

Loose electrical connections in your air conditioning system can cause serious problems such as a fire. This disrupts the flow of electricity to your air conditioner.

Refrigerant Leaks

Refrigerant leaks are harmful to the environment and can negatively impact your air conditioner’s performance and energy efficiency. We will fix your leak, test it and ensure your system has the correct amount of refrigerant.

Frozen Evaporator Coils

A dirty air filter, low refrigerant or blocked return air ductwork can impair your air conditioner’s airflow. This results in frozen evaporator coils.

Defective Compressors

If your air conditioner is shorting out or the motor is burnt out or broken, the problem is likely a defective compressor. Leaky valves make it much more difficult to create pressurized gas. Other considerations can be a low level of refrigerant and an old compressor that needs to be replaced.

Improper Dehumidifying

When your air conditioner is oversized, it can cool the room too quick and not remove all of the moisture. This allows humidity to remain in your home. Higher cooling coil temperatures may also reduce the dehumidification rate.

Excessive Cycling

Again, an air conditioner that is not the proper size for your home can result in problems such as excessive cycling. Your home will not be properly cooled as a result of this. Other issues could be low refrigerant levels and faulty relay switches.

  • “I had a great experience with Chud. Lewis and Sebastian did a fantastic job. They were communicative and on time, explained everything that they would be doing to clean my HVAC ductwork, answered all of my questions, were honest about not being able to properly clean my dryer vent, and cleaned up after they were done. They also went above and beyond, even cleaning dust from each slat of the return vent. Highly recommend.”

Our home has many vents behind and under furniture, which was moved and replaced as if nothing ever happened. My home was carefully prepared and respected throughout the entire process. An access panel was replaced for a more pleasant look and better access in the future. I will not hesitate to use this company for service again.”
