Air conditioning is a necessity during the hot Las Vegas summers, and when your AC doesn’t work it can make things uncomfortable very quickly. Here are three of the most common reasons why your AC unit might stop working.

outdoor units that need ac service

Faulty wiring

If the AC unit isn’t wired properly, this could prevent the system from getting power. Not to mention the fact that it’s a fire hazard.

Outside fan is not working

The outside fan is what transfers the hot air inside your home to the outside air, allowing your home to cool off. If the outside fan isn’t working, this heat transfer isn’t taking place. Not only will your home stay hot, this problem could cause damage to your AC unit and potentially cause it to overheat.

Frozen inside coil

This is usually caused by problems with air flow, such as blockages or dirty filters. It could also be caused by low refrigerant.

All these problems can be detected and repaired early with regular, professional tuneups. To prevent any of these problems happening to you, call the Las Vegas air conditioning repair professionals at Windy City Air at (702) 932-7284 today.
