Common Problems with AC Units
Frozen Evaporator Coils: Running your AC frequently at night can lead to a frozen evaporator coil. The result is overheating and a lack of adequately cooled air.
Malfunctioning Compressor: As the most critical part of your AC system, you are bound to notice if your compressor is malfunctioning. Without a functioning compressor, your system will only deliver warm air.
Clogged Condenser: Because moisture passes through the condensate drain, it can become clogged. You face leaks, water damage, and a less effective system without repair.
Obstructed Expansion Valve: Responsible for converting refrigerant from liquid to gas, the expansion valve can become stuck open or otherwise obstructed. Blockages cause high pressure and eventual overheating.

- Ductless split AC systems
- Evaporative cooler & swamp cooler
- Window & wall units
Signs Your AC Needs Replacement

Requirements for Installation
AC installation is a process that a professional in the field should perform. Avoid the DIY tutorials and trust a team of experts who are HVAC certified. When deciding on a unit, however, consider these tips:
- A home with a proper cooling system will help keep humidity at bay.
- Selecting the same type of AC as your prior system can save you time and money since it typically will require less reconfiguration.
- Ductless split air conditioning is an excellent option for homes without pre-existing ductwork and makes the installation process much easier.
- Keep the size of your house in mind when picking out a cooling unit. If the unit ends up being too small or too large for your home, it can lead to uneven air flow within rooms.
