There’s probably no need to tell you just how stressful it can be to be stuck with an air conditioning system that is in disrepair—particularly when our temperatures are still reaching the 90’s. You may be tempted to hold off on repairs if you suspect they’re necessary, as we are nearing the end of summer, after all. However, this could be a big mistake.
It’s always better to address problems as early as possible in order to avoid major repairs or premature system breakdown in the future. One AC problem you definitely don’t want to wait to fix is a bad condenser. This component is housed in the outdoor unit of your system, along with the compressor. It condenses the refrigerant from a gas into a liquid as it moves to the indoor evaporator. This is one of the most major components of your air conditioner, and its failure can significantly impact your AC unit’s performance, efficiency, and lifespan. Over time, that can shorten the lifespan of your furnace, as well as create more serious repair issues.
Signs That You Have a Bad Condenser
One of the biggest indications that something is wrong with your condenser is that your air conditioner does not produce cool air, or that it does a poor job of cooling your home. Due to this, you may likely find that you’re paying more for your energy bills, yet getting less efficiency and comfort. While this could instead be the sign of a compressor issue or a refrigerant leak, it could be a sign that you have a blocked condenser preventing proper airflow.
The best way to protect your system is by scheduling routine preventive maintenance on a yearly basis—or twice yearly if you have a heat pump. However should you need repairs on your existing unit, maintenance or not, we are the team you can trust.
