As summer approaches Denver, you are probably wondering whether your AC is ready for another summer.

- Overheated compressor. All air conditioners rely on the refrigerant cycle to remove warm indoor air and send cooled air through your ductwork (or directly into your home if you have a ductless system). But if there is an airflow problem in the ductwork, or if your system components have accumulated significant amounts of dust and debris, then your compressor may be at risk of overheating. As the engine of the circulating refrigerant, the compressor is responsible for moving that pressurized refrigerant through the coils, but it will not work effectively if it cannot cool down.
- Frozen evaporator coil. Another problem of airflow can lead to a frozen evaporator coil. Your evaporator sits inside the indoor unit and as cool liquid refrigerant passes through its coils, it cools the air extracted from within your living space, absorbing heat in the process. However, if this cooled air cannot then be quickly distributed throughout your home, then it may lead to the coil frosting over.
- Low refrigerant. As you probably know already, your AC has a certain amount of refrigerant within it known as its “charge.” The right level of refrigerant is necessary to the cooling cycle. However, over the course of its operation, your AC’s refrigerant level may drop due to leaking. Even the small micro-puncture can lead to a significant decrease in efficiency and performance.
