Common AC Repairs

While we will repair any air conditioner problem out there, there are a few things we see more often than others. If you need AC repairs in Salem, your problem is most likely one of the following things.

Air Filters

Most people change their air filters once or twice a year and don’t think about it beyond that. Once the filter is full, though, it gets harder for the air conditioner to get the air it needs. Over time, this can cause your air conditioner to break down earlier than you might have expected.


The thermostat tells the air conditioner how cold it is, so the air conditioner knows whether it should be on or off. If your thermostat breaks, your A/C may not know when to turn it on or off. It may run constantly, which adds a lot of wear and tear to the motor, or it may not turn on at all.

Refrigerant Leaks

The refrigerant in your air conditioner is what allows it to cool the air. If your refrigerant is leaking, your air conditioner won’t function as well. It won’t be able to cool the warm air as effectively, so it won’t cool your home as effectively, either.

Electrical Fuses/Breakers

If your air conditioner blows a fuse here or there, it’s probably not a big deal. If, however, your air conditioner is blowing electrical fuses or breakers all the time, it’s time to call in a professional.


On an A/C unit, the condenser helps the refrigerant stay cold, rather than getting heated by the warm air coming through the unit. It also has parts that push the hot air through the cold refrigerant, thereby cooling it off. Needless to say, if you are having condenser problems, your air conditioner won’t work very well.


The compressor works alongside the condenser to help your air conditioning refrigerant lose any heat it has picked up so it can continue cooling the air for your home. When it’s
not working, your unit may still cool, or may cool for a while, but it won’t work as effectively as it has before.
