Although majority of air conditioning (A/C) repair must be done by a professional Frisco A/C technician, it is important that homeowners know how to do basic troubleshooting or at least have some fundamental knowledge as to how to go about examining your A/C unit to see what might be going wrong, in case it goes on the fritz.
Before I go any further, let me remind you to be sure to turn off the power to both, the evaporator assembly and condenser, prior to doing any work on your A/C unit.
Central A/C units have two individual parts: the evaporator and the condenser. The evaporator coil is located in the main duct junction, aka the plenum, which is on top of the furnace; whereas, the condenser unit is generally placed outdoors on a slab of concrete.
Generally, central A/Cs are attached to a home’s forced-air distribution system. Hence, the same ductwork, blower, and motor intended for heating are utilized to dispense cool air from the air conditioning system. The moment you turn on your central A/C, hot air inside your home streams through the return-air duct towards the furnace. The blower across the cooled evaporator coil then moves the hot air in the plenum and is afterward distributed through ducts thereby providing stable cooled air inside your home. In cases when your unit does not cool, and yet the A/C unit is on, the issue is most likely emanating from its distribution system.
Both the condenser and the evaporator are sealed. For this reason, an experienced and highly knowledgeable A/C repair professional has to be called for any kind of A/C servicing and repairs apart from routine cleaning. Central A/C units need to be properly and skillfully inspected and repaired prior to the start of every cooling season.
