Refrigerant Leaks

One of the most common causes of reduced cooling is a low refrigerant level. If you check refrigerant levels and find that they’re low, you need to call a technician to address the issue. Low refrigerant is caused by one of two things: either the technician who installed your air conditioning didn’t charge it with enough refrigerant, or your air conditioning system has a leak. Both of these problems require an HVAC expert to fix them. When you call Cooper Mechanical, we will determine what the issue is and either charge your air conditioning with the proper amount of refrigerant or repair your leak. When we replace your refrigerant, we use ozone-friendly products like Puron R410A so that you don’t have to worry about environmental damage from coolants.

Dirty Filters and Coils

If your air conditioner filters and coils aren’t kept clean, the dirt and dust buildup results in reduced system efficiency. This means that not only is your air conditioner no longer performing correctly, but you’re paying higher energy bills for a faulty system. Dirty filters and coils can also lead to premature compressor or fan failure, which spells more problems and higher bills for you. Act quickly to prevent further problems and start scheduling regular maintenance with Cooper Mechanical. Preventative maintenance heads off small problems so that you don’t have to deal with the larger problems that develop from cooling system neglect.

Drainage Problems

A condensate drain removes water from your air conditioner’s evaporator coils. Condensate drains can become clogged if they do not drain properly, which especially becomes a problem during humid months like August and September. Condensate drains most frequently become clogged when a room air conditioner isn’t properly mounted. If your air conditioner is having drainage problems, our HVAC professionals will correct the installation of your units or properly install new ones for you.

Faulty Compressor

The compressor is the keystone of your air conditioning system: it removes hot air from the room and uses it to evaporate the coolant. Symptoms of a faulty compressor include reduced cooling and AC units that turn on and off frequently. Compressor problems can be complex and difficult to diagnose, and they often result from issues that require a professional technician like overheating, faulty writing or a failing motor. At Cooper Mechanical, we will determine what kind of repair your compressor needs and fix or replace it as needed, no matter the brand or model that you currently have installed.
