These are the Signs Your Air Conditioner Needs to Be Repaired
1. Cool Air not Flowing
This ordinary issue can appear in two ways. First, you may hear the AC running, but there’s no air coming out of the ducts. Second, although you feel some air, it doesn’t seem cool at all.
Usually, this problem is a possible to fix. It’s usually just a tripped circuit breaker. It’s also possible that the blower belt is worn and needs a replacement. Low refrigerant levels can also affect cooling.
2. Hot Air Blowing Out
What is the reason why you’re AC blowing hot air instead of cold air? The last thing you need is to feel warmer when you’re sweating inside the house. This problem can happen even in the middle of summer.
Hot air may be indications that you have a dirty air filter, and blockage in the ducts, or debris that is causing the compressor to overheat. It’s also possible that refrigerant levels are low.
3. AC Running Continually
It’s normal for the air conditioner to run more often in hot weather; however it should still turn off intermittently. Rectifying an AC that won’t shut off helps you protect vital components and prevent your energy bill from rising. This is one of the most common AC problems, and it can have multiple causes. You may have a problem with the thermostat, compressor, air filters, or electrical parts.
4. AC Not Turning On
It’s disappointing to wake up in the morning and realize the air conditioner won’t come on at all. Even if you turn the thermostat to a lower temperature, the AC still won’t take on.
Sometimes, this problem happens because a circuit breaker is tripped. Other reasons include faulty thermostat or loose wiring.
5. Unit Turning On and Off Frequently
This problem is also known as short cycling. Instead of completing a full cooling cycle, the AC starts up over and over. This is a serious issue that can damage the compressor. Sometimes, the problem is as simple as blocked air filters or thermostats calibrated incorrectly t. It’s also possible that your air conditioner is too powerful for your home.
6. Cooling Coil Freezing
When you notice ice around the AC coil, it means the system is working too hard to keep your home cool. Taking care of this can save you a lot on your electricity bill. While it’s natural for air conditioners to work harder in hot weather, it’s not normal for the coil to produce ice. Unclean air filters or condenser units make the AC work twice as hard for the same cooling amount.
7. Refrigerant or Water Leaking
It’s not easy for homeowners to detect most refrigerant leaks, because they frequently pop up in coolant lines. However, brightly colour stains near the AC unit are a sign of problems. While it’s reasonable to see some condensation outside the air conditioner, excessive moisture can be a sign of leaking water. Blocked drainage pipes, cooling coil blockage, dirty AC tray and floor trap blocked are usually cause water leaks.
8. Strange Smells Coming From AC
One sign of AC problems is a burning smell. Some homeowners also recognise smell that seems mouldy. You may notice these smells coming from the vents or when you’re close to the main AC unit.
Electrical odours may mean that the motor has wiring issues. If your air filters are blocked, it can cause the system to overheat, leading to burning smells. Mould smells are related to improper drainage.
9. Abnormal Noises Appearing Suddenly
Hearing sounds, you haven’t heard before, should throw up a warning. Abnormal vibrations, squealing, or grinding noises mean there’s an urgent problem to fix.Squealing sounds are most common result of a worn or badly aligned belt. Grinding noises are especially dangerous for AC units since they often signal issues with motor bearings.
10. Air Conditioner Tripping Circuit Breaker Repeatedly
Does your air conditioner trip a fuse every time it turns on? This disappointing issue forces you to interrupt your other activities regularly. One reason for this problem is the poor AC installation. If the circuit breaker or wiring isn’t rated for the HVAC unit’s output, you’ll run into this issue.
