    Most Common Components Requiring Repairs

    Like any piece of technology, any part of the AC can break – especially if it is not properly maintained, or if the air conditioner has aged. That is why a full service inspection is typically a good idea to identify where your air conditioner may be struggling, and to address the issue accordingly.

    With that in mind, due to their continuous operation, especially in warmer climates, certain parts are more prone to wear and tear than others. These include:

    • Capacitors – Capacitors are used to store energy and provide a boost to start the motor and keep it running. Capacitors can fail due to power surges, overheating, or general wear over time. They are particularly susceptible to damage in hot environments because they are stressed by the need to start the motor repeatedly. Signs of failure include a clicking noise coming from the AC, the unit not starting, or the motor stopping shortly after starting.
    • Compressors – The compressor is the heart of the air conditioning system, pumping refrigerant through the coils to facilitate heat exchange. Compressors often fail due to low refrigerant levels, refrigerant overcharge, poor lubrication, or continuous operation over long periods. Inadequate maintenance and dirty coils can also lead to compressor overheating. Signs of failure include noisy operation, decreased cooling efficiency, or the air conditioner not turning on.
    • Fan Motors – Fan motors power the fans that move air over the evaporator and condenser coils, ensuring efficient heat transfer. Fan motors fail primarily due to dirt and debris accumulation, which can impede fan movement and strain the motor. Worn belts and faulty bearings can also cause fan motor failures. Signs of failure include poor airflow, unusual noises, or the unit overheating.
    • Air Filters – Air filters clean incoming air and prevent debris from entering the AC unit and clogging the coils. Filters are not prone to “breaking” in the traditional sense but can become clogged if not regularly replaced or cleaned, leading to reduced airflow and system efficiency. Signs of a college air filter include ice formation on coils, reduced cooling power, and increased energy consumption.
    • Refrigerant Lines – Refrigerant lines carry the refrigerant between the indoor and outdoor units. These lines can leak due to corrosion, physical damage, or improper installation. Vibrations and temperature fluctuations can also weaken joints and connections over time. Reduced cooling efficiency, hissing sounds, or the presence of ice on the compressor are all signs of failure.

    Preventive maintenance is key to extending the lifespan of these critical AC components. Regular check-ups, cleaning air filters, and ensuring proper refrigerant levels can significantly reduce the likelihood of failures.

    What is the Process for Diagnosing and Repairing a Broken AC?

    When your air conditioning system malfunctions, the repair process has to be thorough. We don’t know if only one part failed or if there are many damaged parts. Sometimes, the root of a problem can be elsewhere – for example, if there is an issue with the condenser, it can cause water to back up into the system, which causes the fan to short out. The fan is the part that’s broken, but if you don’t fix the condenser, you’re just going to damage the fan replacement.

    At California Energy Consultant Service in Sacramento, our technicians are extra careful and provide a thorough and complete inspection of your entire HVAC system to see if we can spot any problems. The process is far more technical and uses many tools, but the process includes:

    • Initial Assessment – The process begins with a consultation, where the technician will ask the homeowner about the nature of the problem, any symptoms observed, and the history of the unit, including its age and any previous repairs.
    • Visual Inspection – The technician will conduct a thorough visual inspection of the entire system, checking for obvious signs of wear, damage, or leaks. This includes examining the external components like the condenser unit, as well as the internal components such as filters and evaporator coils.
    • Checking Thermostat Settings – The technician will ensure that the thermostat is working correctly and set to the appropriate settings. This is a basic but crucial step as incorrect settings can sometimes mimic the symptoms of a malfunctioning AC.
    • Testing Electrical Components – Electrical issues are a common cause of AC malfunctions. The technician will check switches, wiring, capacitors, and other electrical components for signs of damage or failure.
    • Refrigerant Level Check – Refrigerant levels are crucial for proper AC operation. The technician will measure the levels to determine if there are any leaks or if the system requires recharging.
    • Airflow Measurement – Proper airflow is essential for efficiency. The technician will measure airflow through the evaporator coil to identify any blockages or issues with the blower motor or air ducts.

    Once the initial testing is complete, the technician can identify the source of the problem, whether it’s a clogged filter, a broken fan motor, a leaking refrigerant line, or a faulty compressor. Each issue has specific symptoms and diagnostic markers that help in pinpointing the exact cause.

    Repairing the AC

    Once we’ve determined what the problems are, AC repair begins. Before proceeding with repairs, the technician will discuss the findings, explain the necessary repairs, and provide an estimate of the costs and time required. This ensures that the homeowner is informed and consents to the proposed work.

    Depending on the issue, the technician may need to replace or repair parts. Common replacements include capacitors, fan motors, filters, and sometimes the thermostat. Refrigerant leaks require finding and sealing the leak before recharging the system.

    Please keep in mind that there are hundreds of different types of air conditioners in Sacramento, covering decades. Some parts may not be available right away. If we need to order a part, we will typically create a rush order and try to receive it and install it as fast as we can.

    After the repairs are made, the technician will test the system to ensure it is running correctly. This testing phase will check if the AC is producing the correct temperature and airflow and that all repaired or replaced parts are functioning as expected.

    Before leaving, the technician will provide the homeowner with tips on maintaining the AC system, such as how often to change air filters and the importance of regular maintenance checks.
