For most of us, the quality assurance that comes with purchasing a brand name is one of the primary influences on our buying decisions, and air conditioning units are no exception. Today, Carrier is one of the biggest names in air conditioning equipment and has built its reputation on years of quality products. But that doesn’t mean that a Carrier air conditioning system won’t require air conditioning maintenance and repair. What it does mean, however, is that Carrier HVAC repair and maintenance usually results in addressing minor air conditioning issues that won’t leave you wondering why you purchased a Carrier.

After a period of extended use, a Carrier air conditioner sometimes presents its owners with a mysterious situation: it runs but it doesn’t provide coolness. If the air conditioner is within its lifespan, its failure to provide cool air is probably the result of a clogged air filter and not a problem with the air conditioner itself. Remedying a clogged air filter is an inexpensive, same day fix, with the technician either replacing your disposable filter or cleaning and reinserting your permanent filter. Another issue that might eventually arise with your Carrier air unit is that it kicks on but soon kicks off again. If it does this repeatedly, the worse case scenario is usually a faulty fan, which is still easy and rather inexpensive to replace.

A third problem that occasionally attends Carrier air conditioners is that they fail to produce meaningful airflow. In this case, you could also be looking at a clogged filter, or it could be that your air unit needs more Freon. But the problem could also be the result of something that has nothing to do with your air conditioner: leaks in your ductwork. Leaky ductwork tends to worsen over time, which can fool homeowners into thinking that their air conditioner is slowly going out. If you aren’t receiving enough airflow, having an HVAC technician inspect your ductwork as well as your air conditioner is the best choice.
