A typical split-system air conditioner has a lot of moving parts. Your cooling system is more than just the condenser unit (the AC unit or heat pump) sitting outside your home.
Most can include, but not limited to having:
Air conditioners are really just machines with parts that wear and tear over time. So even if your air conditioner has been maintained correctly, it will require repair services at some point.

The refrigerant, a chemical used in your air conditioner, in order to cool the air in your house, is contained in the pipes that connect the indoor and outdoor equipment.
A leak in the system will cause the ac unit to not cool correctly. It’s important that we find that leak and seal it. Then make sure to add back in the proper levels of refrigerant that was lost.
AC coils get very cold and also produce condensation, just like the condensation that forms on the outside of a cold glass of water?
To help the condensation to flow away from the unit, air conditioners are designed with drain pans and piping. If there’s a clog it can cause all sorts of problems. You could experience high levels of humidity. Or ultimately the unit doesn’t turn on because the drain pan is full.
Make no mistake about it, the compressor is the most critical part of your air conditioning system. Without it, nothing else in the system will work properly. Compressor repairs can be the most complex as well. Which is the main reason most homeowners hate to hear anything about compressor problems.
The condensing unit, the big metal box outside your home, houses a compressor, coils, and one or more fans.
These components are essential to making sure your air conditioner is operating properly and as intended. The outdoor fan, specifically, helps cool the refrigerant and push hot air away from your unit. A problem with the motor to something like bent blades can keep your system from operating and struggling to perform.
Heat energy and humidity are removed from the air, when warm indoor air passes through the evaporator coil. Sometimes these will need to be replaced.
Most central air conditioning systems will include an evaporator coil. To see if there is any obvious damage, then you can find the evaporator coil sitting in its own cabinet, outside the furnace. If your indoor unit is in fact a furnace. But if the indoor unit is a fan coil, then the evaporator coil sits inside the fan coil cabinet.
Heat pumps are subject to the same issues in a cooling system, just like your typical air conditioner. So you want to make sure they aren’t dirty. And that the coils aren’t clogged or frozen. And check to see that there are no visible refrigerant leaks or compressor problems.
We recommend checking out your thermostat settings and the air filter first. If everything checks out okay and you’re still sweating inside and just need some relief, then give our team a call right away at 702-450-6488 so we can help you figure out what’s really wrong.
It could be your outdoor condenser unit. A good indication is when your air conditioner is running, but not lowering temperatures inside. The first thing to look at would be to see if the condenser coil is blocked or clogged.
The exterior of the condenser unit has a large outdoor coil, which wraps around the outside of the unit.
The condenser fan draws air into the outdoor unit through the condenser coil, along with dirt, grass and other airborne debris, as it looks to pull heat energy out of your home. In the worst case scenario, a complete system shutdown or damage to the compressor from having to work so hard will occur. But most of the time it’s probably just a clogged coil where it won’t cool the air and runs extremely inefficiently.
Rinsing the coil gently with a hose or using a brush attachment to vacuum our any debris could be your first move. If that doesn’t help, then it might be time to get some professional help.
Depending on your system, you may have an air filter located in or around the indoor air handler. The filter is supposed to catch dirt, dust and other airborne particles before they get to the air handler, in order to keep the components inside the system clean and working effectively.
As a bonus it can actually help keep the air in your home clean as well. A dirty air filter can block airflow and reduce cooling to your home.
To see if it’s the air filter, find where it’s located, turn the system off, remove and inspect the filter. If it is clean and you thermostat checks out, then it’s probably a bigger issue.
Upgrading your thermostat can also help you save money and increase the durability of your home’s HVAC system.
Multi-stage systems include more than one source of heated or cooled air. An example might be when a heating system uses both a furnace and solar panel to provide heat. Your thermostat will requires a multi-stage configuration.
