Maine AC Repairs
Having your air conditioning go down during the hot summer months is a frustration no homeowner wants to deal with. Not only is your family uncomfortable, but the heat can also affect pets and your health as well. High temperatures and moisture encourage mold growth and can exacerbate underlying conditions.
What causes an air conditioner to break in Maine? Some of the most common issues you may face include:
- Outdoor condenser wiring damaged by mice, rats, or other rodents.
- Majorly clogged filtration systems from a lack of cleaning.
- Winter falling ice damage to outdoor condensers.
- Lawn clippings and leaf buildup on outdoor coil fins.
- Broken capacitors
- Broken fan motors

AC Maintenance in Maine
Like any piece of machinery – such as your car or a lawnmower – your home air conditioner needs to be maintained on a regular basis. Having an expert technician open your air conditioner to clean out debris, check on its condition, and make sure everything is running well is an important investment in your home comfort every year. Before the summer season gets into full swing, having your air conditioning system worked on is a crucial move.
It’s important to note that there’s a difference between air conditioner maintenance and “recharging” an air conditioner. The term “recharging” suggests that an air conditioner is losing refrigerant from regular use every year. A properly maintained and working air conditioning system is a “closed loop” system, which does not need a refrigerant recharge unless there is a leak in the coils. Regular maintenance can help you identify if there’s a leak or other problem, which may prevent major repairs or replacement in the future.
