Signs your AC Unit is likely too low on refrigerant:
If your evaporator coils freeze over, the blower fan will likely overheat after straining to pull air through coils encased in ice.
An AC unit’s fan motor can also malfunction. Give us a call if:
At CMB HVAC, we utilize industry-grade equipment to fix leaky ducts. If you are experiencing uneven airflow from your heating or AC system, unusually high energy bills, or stuffy indoor conditions, give us a call. We can get into attics and crawl spaces to inspect your ductwork for holes, poor insulation, and twisted segments.
When a fan’s motor dies, the fan belt loosens, or blades get clogged with debris and dirt, your blower may stop blowing air properly. Insufficient airflow will fail to cool down your home. Fortunately, we excel at investigating poor airflow and providing fast solutions!
Air conditioners use a lot of electricity and are the most expensive utility cost in many households. If you notice sudden or unexpected increases in your monthly electric bill, it may be a sign of AC inefficiency. If you have an old AC unit, it may be wearing out. Inefficiency is also caused by dirty filters, duct leaks, defective motors, faulty capacitors, and low refrigerant. With regular proactive maintenance, CMB HVAC can assess every component to optimize your AC unit’s effectiveness.
