Common AC Condenser Problems to Look Out For

Air conditioners have indoor and outdoor components, and each one is equally important in the cooling process. The outdoor portion of your air conditioner is called the condenser unit, and it is susceptible to a unique set of problems due to its location outside. Today we’re going to go over some of the most common condenser unit problems that show up in Coachella Valley homes and provide tips for how you can prevent them!

What is the condenser unit?

The condenser unit is the box-shaped device that’s typically located in the back or one of the sides of your home. It houses a number of different components, three of the most important of those being the compressor, the condenser coils and the fan. The purpose of the condenser unit is to take the heat that was extracted from the system’s indoor component and release it to the air outside. Without the condenser unit, your air conditioner would remove heat from your home’s air but it would have nowhere to get rid of it.

How to prevent common condenser unit problems

There are a few things you can do to prevent the condenser unit problems above. First, make sure that you schedule a tune-up for your system every spring. During a tune-up, we’ll perform a full inspection of your condenser unit and perform maintenance tasks like straightening the fins, cleaning the coils, measuring refrigerant levels and testing the unit’s airflow.

In addition, be sure to clear the area within a few feet of your condenser unit to give it room to breathe. This includes trimming back bushes and plants so that air can easily flow in and out of the unit.

If you have any questions about these common condenser unit problems, or if you’d like a cooling system serviced or installed in your home, contact Hydes, your Indio, CA, air conditioning contractor.
