Home AC Problems Often Covered By Warranty

Making an investment in a new central air conditioning system for your home is probably one of the biggest investments you can make in your home's overall comfort level.  Therefore, if you spend a bunch of money on a new stem and start having problems not long after, the situation can be disheartening to say the least. If you purchased your new system from a reliable dealer brand new, thankfully, it likely came with a warranty, which means a lot of repairs will be covered. Take a look at some of the problems with a new central air conditioning system that should be covered by the warranty.

Fan System Failure

The fan system is what is responsible for carrying the treated, cooled air through the ducts and into the house to keep the space cool. Therefore, a fan system failure will yield your unit pretty useless because the cooled air will not make it inside the house. The typical reasons for AC fan system failure include lack of interior lubrication, poor motor quality, or improper assembly during the manufacturing process.

Electronic Issues

Wiring problems, lack of power supplication, failed transfer solenoids are all examples of electrical issues that can occur with a central air conditioning system. Unfortunately, electrical issues can pose a fire threat but most units are designed to completely shut down if an electrical issue is present. Th, electrical problems will usually be covered by warranty for quite a while after purchase and installation by a professional.

Condenser Coil Problems

The condenser coil is what houses coolant to properly dehumidify and cool the air cycling through the unit. If the condenser coil is freezing up or otherwise not doing it's job, you have a faulty unit that will have to have a new condenser coil.

Leaking Coolant

Coolant leaks are rare, especially with a modern unit that you just had installed . However, leaking coolant can and does happen if there is a flaw in the design of the coolant reservoir or lines. Loss of coolant will result in you home AC supplying air that is not as cool as it should be.

Overall, most problems you can have with a new air system should be covered by the warranty. Reach out to an air conditioning repair service, like Shakley Mechanical Inc, for information about warranty--elated repairs, general repairs, or how to get in touch with the manufacturer of your AC unit.
