Top AC Failure Problems

AC failure is a common problem, and there's multiple reasons to why they break down. A lot of the time it's due to the lack of knowledge on how to properly care for the unit.

Here are the top reasons your air conditioner can fail:

Refrigerant Problems

If your AC isn't blowing cold air, the coolant or refrigerant could be leaking through the coils or malfunctioning. Hire a professional to replace the refrigerant, clean, and repair the leak if need be.

Faulty Thermostat

More times than not, the controls are the problem and not the actual unit itself. The thermostat controls the unit and tells it what to do. If your AC is turning on and off or not producing the correct temperature, the control panel may be the culprit.

Lack of Maintenance and Cleaning

If you let dirt and grime build up and don't schedule regular maintenance, you can expect your AC to break down. Regular maintenance is essential for the health and efficiency of your unit.

While these are some of the top reasons your AC may fail, they are not the only reasons. If you're having AC problems, call 72 Degrees Comfort Company at 515-965-7272 or email us at
