Time to Repair Your Air Conditioner?
If your air conditioner is less than 15-years-old and is making an unusual noise, not cooling as well as expected, or has stopped working completely, you probably need to schedule an AC repair (if your cooling system is more than 15 years old, it may be time to think about replacing your air conditioner.) But before you call us, you may want to try a few things to see if you can improve the system’s condition on your own. Often, changing a filter or cleaning the outside of the condenser can fix your problem, as a dirty filter or condenser can limit an air conditioner’s ability to cool. In some cases, this can cause freezing, water leaks, and other issues, too.
What to do before scheduling an AC repair appointment:
- Make sure the thermostat is set correctly.
- Check to see if the furnace filter is clean, and change the filter if needed.
- Inspect the circuit breaker to make sure it wasn’t tripped. A tripped breaker could be the start of a problem or just a random occurrence. If it trips more than once, you should have a certified technician diagnose the problem.
- Look at the condenser (located outside your property) to make sure it is clean and has room to breathe. Shrubs and plants often grow too close to the condenser, preventing airflow, so check to see there are 12 inches of clearance on all sides as well.
- If you’ve lost power to your home or you are using a “Saver’s Switch” from your utility company, your air conditioner might not run. Find out if your Saver’s Switch is activated before calling a technician.
Common Air Conditioner Problems
Some of the most common AC problems to keep an eye out for include:
If Your AC Isn't Cooling Properly
If your air conditioning unit isn't cooling, it could be because of several possible issues:
- Refrigerant: Your refrigerant could be low or leaking.
- Sensor Problems: If you have a window unit, the thermostat sensor could be knocked out of position. Carefully bend the wire holding it in place to properly position it.
- Thermostat Issues: Check your thermostat to make sure it is set properly and it is reading the correct temperature.
- Drainage Problems: Check your unit’s drain to make sure it isn’t clogged.
- Dirty Filter: A clogged filter restricts airflow through the unit, decreasing its efficiency and reducing its ability to effectively cool the air.
If Your AC Isn't Turning On
If your air conditioner isn't turning on, it could be one of the following issues:
- Electric Control Failure: Your compressor and fan controls could be worn out from having your system turn off and on too frequently.
- Thermostat: Make sure your thermostat is working — it might need new batteries or might need to be replaced entirely.
If Your Air Conditioner Air Flow Is Weak
- Ductwork Problems: Your ducts could be leaking air or be clogged or constricted.
