For example, if your air conditioner seems to be working but it isn’t producing cold air, you are likely dealing with a refrigerant leak. Air conditioners aren’t supposed to leak any refrigerant because they are closed systems, so even if a repair technician refills the refrigerant, you will keep having problems unless you can find the leak in the system.

If your air conditioner isn’t blowing air throughout your house at all, you are likely dealing with a bad blower motor. These units can fail in a few ways. Sometimes just the capacitor fails and replacing it fixes the problem.
