Main Causes of AC Failure and How to Prevent Them

There are several different causes for your AC system to stop working. Let’s look at the five main causes of AC failure and how to prevent them.

Skipping Annual Maintenance

Neglecting to have a qualified technician perform the proper maintenance will eventually lead to AC failure. If you’re a homeowner in Dayton, OH, contact Butler Heating & Air Conditioning to schedule maintenance for your AC. Our technicians are certified by top organizations and will provide the best workmanship.

Refrigerant Leak

Refrigerant is a substance that plays a vital role in the cooling process. Unfortunately, it is harmful to the environment and a lack of it will cause your AC to work sub-optimally or not at all. Take preventative measures by having a qualified expert look at your AC and determine the source of the leak. We will fix it and top up your unit with refrigerant.

Frozen Coils

The coils in your AC are involved in the heat transfer that occurs in your air conditioner so that your home can remain cool. Frozen coils can result from problematic airflow that is caused by blocked ducts or dirty air filters. Replace your air filters regularly and make sure to schedule a regular tune-up so that a knowledgeable technician checks your ducts.

Damaged Parts

When there are damaged compressors, fan blades or electrical connections, the operation of your AC can grind to a halt. The experienced eye of a qualified technician will catch any part that is on its way to being worn-out. Prompt replacement of depreciating parts will guarantee that your AC continues to operate seamlessly.

Defective Thermostat

A defective thermostat can cause your AC to go in a constant state of switching on and off. Your air conditioner may even stop working completely. In this case, maintenance is probably not enough. If you are in Dayton, OH, you should contact Butler Heating & Air Conditioning today about replacing your thermostat.
