The most frequent air conditioning issues in split system units involve refrigerant leaks, drain line clogs, thermostat malfunctions, and capacitor failures and faulty ductwork are common problems seen across brands.

Refrigerant Leaks
Description: Refrigerant is the gas used in air conditioning systems to cool the air. It cycles through the evaporator and condenser coils transferring heat outside.Causes: Refrigerant leaks mainly occur due to installation errors, corrosion, or physical damage to components. Evaporator coils are most prone to developing pinhole leaks.Effects: Leaking refrigerant reduces cooling efficiency. It can also cause the compressor to overwork leading to breakdowns. Loss of refrigerant increases energy bills and strain on the system.

Solutions: Tiny leaks can be difficult to locate. Experienced technicians use advanced leak detection methods and dye tracing to pinpoint the source. Identified leaks can then be repaired and the system properly refilled with refrigerant gas to specification.

Drain Line Clogs
Description: Drain lines remove condensation water from the evaporator coil to prevent internal flooding.Causes: Drain lines clog with algae, dirt and debris over time. Installation faults can also impede drainage.Effects: Blocked drain lines cause leaks and water damage. This can lead to electrical shorts and corrosion inside the air handling unit.Solutions: Technicians clear obstructed drain lines using pressure flushing or mechanical cleaning. They may also rearrange or replace poorly situated lines.

Ways to prevent issues include:

  • Annual servicing to identify and address minor faults
