Why You May Need Home AC Repair

There are a few things that could be causing your AC to malfunction. Here are some of the most common causes that may require an AC repair expert to come to take a look at your unit.

Contact us for AC Repair services in Palm Springs, Palm Desert & La Quinta, CA. Call The General at (760) 205-9917

Low Refrigerant

If your refrigerant is left unchecked for an extended period, it may create frozen evaporator coils. This can lead to several problems and will get worse over time if not fixed right away.

Some signs to look out for are:

  • Your electrical bill has increased for no apparent reason
  • Ice is forming on the refrigerant lines
  • There’s water leakage around the heater
  • Your home is not getting colder
  • Your vents are blowing warm air
  • The thermostat is not adjusting properly

Also, if you are hearing odd noises coming out of your AC unit, give us a call. That’s a sign your compressor may be malfunctioning.

Lack of Airflow

Lack of airflow can also lead to the evaporator coils freezing up. Once there’s ice, it becomes a cycle. More ice forms to the point where the coils become completely frozen.

This issue is easily preventable with regular maintenance, during which we will:

  • Check refrigerant levels
  • Keep supply vents open 
  • Check thermostat
  • Switch your air filters
  • Check the condensation drain
  • Increase fan speed

Just give us a call to come inspect your units, so we can “PRE-solve” any problems that may arise shortly before they get worse and more costly to solve. 

Dirty Condenser Coils

If dirt accumulates on your unit’s condenser coils, it will interfere with the heat transfer, and ice will form on the evaporator coils. When this happens, you will soon notice that your house isn’t getting as cold as it should. Repairing evaporator coils is not an easy task, and definitely isn’t something you want to do yourself.

Just contact one of our expert technicians to take care of it for you!

Fan Problems

When ice forms on your evaporator coils, the fan may start overheating from working too hard to pull air through. Fan issues can also be due to a malfunctioning motor. So don’t hesitate to reach out to us to come diagnose the problem.

Thermostat Issues

If your thermostat is old and malfunctioning, it may be time to upgrade it. If it’s fairly new, several things could cause it to act up. Just reach out to General Air Conditioning & Plumbing today, and our trained professionals can diagnose the issue and resolve it in no time! If you are ready to upgrade or replace your existing thermostat, ask us about smart/wifi thermostats. Smart thermostats can learn your home’s schedule and adjust themselves accordingly, as well as being able to be adjusted from a wireless device.

Leaking Duct

A leaking air duct is another common problem that causes uneven air flow throughout your house. If you notice that some rooms are colder than others in your house or your energy bills have increased unexpectedly, it may be a symptom that indicates a leaking duct. 

Our AC repair technicians are fully equipped and experienced to deal with this type of problem. Just reach out to us, and we’ll get it taken care of!

Clogged Drain

Yes, your AC can be acting up because of a plumbing problem. If your drain lines are clogged, it may have a domino effect on different parts of your waterline and potentially create humidity. Too much humidity can cause mold, corrosion, and rust on your AC unit, leading to many more problems in the long run.
