The Tale of the Icy AC

Monday, July 23rd, 2018

man-with-fanHmmmmm, there is ice on the coil in my indoor AC unit. That’s odd, I guess. But hey, it’s a cooling system—looks like it just got a bit carried away with itself this time around.

What to Do About an AC Water Leak?

Monday, July 9th, 2018

AC-technicianWhen you open up a cabinet under your kitchen or bathroom sink and you find a puddle of water under there, you probably aren’t going to be all that shocked. Annoyed, sure, but not shocked. After all, your sink drains through the pipe under there, and a leak is not necessarily that surprising. What about if you walk past your indoor air conditioning unit and find that there is a pool of water surrounding it, though? That’s odd, isn’t it?

Well, it may be a bit odd, but it actually is not all that uncommon. It is also not necessarily indicative of a very serious problem with your air conditioner—though, as is always the case with air conditioning issues, it could be a serious problem. All of this does beg the question of where this water is actually coming from, of course. As you may know, your air conditioner does not use water in its operation. It doesn’t store water in a reservoir. It doesn’t have a water supply line. So let’s examine this issue closer.

My AC Has Sprung a Leak!

Monday, July 24th, 2017

HVAC-repair-technician-on-the-jobAir conditioners can develop leaks. Refrigerant leaks are, in fact, among the most serious of all problems that you may encounter with your home cooling system. However, air conditioners do not really leak water — at least not in the way that you may be thinking. After all, evaporative coolers aside, air conditioning systems don’t actually use water in their operation. They don’t have a water line supplying water to the cabinet. So why is there water surrounding your air conditioning system?

The good news is that you are not imagining the problem. There very well could be water surrounding your air conditioner in Bolingbrook, IL, and the AC cabinet could well be the source of that water. So where does this water come from, if you’re not really dealing with a water leak in the AC? That is exactly what we’re here to explore today. Read on, and remember that we are here to resolve any air conditioning problems that you may encounter.

How Frequently Should Refrigerant Be Recharged?

Monday, August 1st, 2016

Never. If your air conditioner is functioning properly, there is no need to recharge your refrigerant. As you’ll learn about a bit more in the following post, there is no point during the cooling process or the refrigerant cycle in which refrigerant is consumed. This means that a low refrigerant level is indicative of a problem. Either your system was insufficiently charged to begin with, meaning that it has never functioned at peak performance or efficiency levels, or that you have a refrigerant leak in your system.
