Air Conditioners Can Fail for Several Reasons

Lack of Regular Maintenance

This is perhaps the most common cause of air conditioning problems. Regular maintenance helps ensure that all the components of your AC system are working correctly. Skipping routine check-ups can lead to minor issues going unnoticed, which over time can develop into more significant problems that cause the system to fail.

Refrigerant Leaks

The refrigerant is what cools the air within your AC system. If your system develops a leak in the refrigerant lines, you can end up with too low a level of refrigerant to effectively cool the air. Not only can this cause your AC to perform poorly, but refrigerant leaks can also lead to serious mechanical issues if not addressed promptly.

Overloading Compressor

The compressor is like the heart of your air conditioning system, pumping refrigerant through the unit to cool down incoming air. During periods of intense heat, the compressor has to work harder and might overheat, especially if your system is not correctly sized for your space. If the compressor fails, the whole system can stop working.

Faulty Thermostat

Sometimes, the problem isn't with the AC unit itself, but with the thermostat that controls it. If the thermostat isn't working correctly, it may not correctly regulate the amount of cold air the system produces, causing it to either cool too much or not enough.

Signs and Symptoms of a Bad Air Conditioning System

  • Reduced airflow from the vents
  • It's blowing warm air
  • You hear unusual noises
  • You smell bad odors
  • Air feels damp or sticky
  • Unit powering on and off

Steps to Install a New Air Conditioning System

  • Assessment & Selection: The first step is understanding your cooling needs. B.L. James & Son will evaluate your home's size, insulation, sun exposure, and your specific comfort requirements. Based on this, we will help you choose the right air conditioning system.
  • Removing the Old System (if applicable): If you're replacing an existing system, the old unit will need to be safely and efficiently removed before the new one can be installed.
  • Preparing the Installation Site: The area where the new system will be installed must be prepared. This might involve clearing away debris, checking electrical connections, and ensuring there's adequate space for the new unit.
  • Installing the Outdoor Unit: The outdoor unit (also known as the condenser) is installed on a concrete pad or brackets outside your home. It needs to be level and clear of obstructions to operate effectively.
  • Installing the Indoor Unit: If you're getting a split system, an indoor unit will need to be installed as well. This will be placed in a suitable location inside your home, usually in the attic or basement. It must be accessible for future maintenance and repairs.
