Refrigerant most commonly known as Freon is the chemical in charge of cooling the air within your air conditioning system.

All refrigerant leaks should be located immediately and repaired. The professionals here at Air Solutions can help you with any problems if you discover that your refrigerant is leaking – just give us a call.
Outside fan is not working
The outside fan is in charge of conveying the heat from your home to the outside air. If the fan on your outside unit is not functioning properly then proper heat transfer cannot take place and your system’s compressor may overheat and trip the safety overload. If you do not take care of your fan in time it may cause internal damage to your compressor and cost you a lot of money in the end to fix.
The outside unit is not functional
If your outside unit is not functional this usually indicates a lack of power, problems with your contractor, or a faulty thermostat. This is one problem that you want to take care of immediately. If you discover that your unit is not functional give our professionals here at Air Solutions a call to come thoroughly inspect your unit.
The coil is frozen
A coil that is frozen often indicates an issue with the airflow. Filthy air filters, or obstructed return air ductwork may cause the restrictions caused by a frozen coil. Frozen indoor coils could also cause your system to be low on refrigerant.
The situations above are not all of the problems you could face with your heater or furnace, but they are the most common. All of our professionals here at Air Solutions would be glad to assist you with any problem you may come across with your heater or furnace. You should always be sure to check your systems regularly to try and prevent anything from going wrong with it.
