Do I need to add freon to my AC unit?
Refrigerant (also known as freon) is not a consumable, like the gasoline in your vehicle. Once the refrigerant circuit is sealed, evaluated, and charged to manufacture specification it should not need to be balanced. However, there are a couple exceptions for needing to add or remove refrigerant from a system. The most common is a leak in the drier, component, coil, or tubing. Others can be changes in the HVAC airflow, incorrect commissioning, improper charging methods, or replacement of a component in the refrigerant circuit. You might have an incorrect refrigerant charge if the unit does not cool well or freezes up. Call Roberson Air Conditioning to schedule a diagnostic appointment today.
Where should my AC be draining?
AC systems create moisture or condensation as a byproduct of cooling. The evaporator coil has a primary pan built into the box that collects water. That pan is connected to a pipe that drains into your home’s plumbing or terminates outside in a lower area like a flower bed, french drain, etc. Units located in the attic should have an emergency or secondary pan underneath the box to collect water in the event the primary pan is cracked, clogged, or overflowing. This pan usually drains outside from a high place as well through a soffit, above a window, onto a patio, etc. If you are having water overflow or dripping from a soffit or ceiling outside please call Roberson Air Conditioning immediately to avoid any water damage to your home and property.
How close can I place plants next to my outside AC condenser?
The outside condenser has a fan on top and coils around the unit that cools the refrigerant after it is compressed. If the condenser coils are clogged or covered it will cause the AC unit to overwork, cost more to operate, damage the unit, or stop working completely. Keeping weeds, plants, vines, structures, grates, or mesh panels away from the outside AC unit can help keep your system cooling and trouble free. Roberson Air Conditioning can do an in depth service check to clean your AC unit and make sure it runs at peak performance.
