Common Central AC Problems
Call or request air conditioner service online today if are experiencing any of the following issues with your central AC unit:
- AC system is not turning on
- Air conditioner is not cooling or is blowing warm air
- AC turning off and on (short cycling)
- Condensation on AC unit or vent
- Indoor temperature too hot or too cold
- Some rooms are properly conditioned and some are too warm
- Indoor coil or refrigerant lines covered with heavy frost or ice, sometimes leading to a leak
- Air conditioner icing over/freezing
- Breaker to the outdoor unit tripped more than once
- A vibration or odd noise with the air conditioner
- Thermostat not working properly
- AC fan not running or continuously running
- Air conditioner needs recharged
Many of these problems are all caused by a few of the same components of your air conditioner. Some of the most common culprits that we see cause AC breakdown regularly are:
- Dirty AC filter
- Bad capacitor
- Dirty evaporator coil
- Dirty outdoor condenser coil
- Failed motor
- Loose wire connections
- Plugged condensate lines
- Freon leak (refrigerant) leak/low refrigerant levels
What to Check Before Calling for Service
Before calling for an air conditioning repair service, always check your filter first. If the air filter is dirty, then go ahead and change it out and give it sometime to see if your air conditioner starts cooling again. If it does, then you can avoid a service call! If it does not, then there is another underlying problem besides a dirty air filter. If your air conditioner is frozen, then make sure to turn it off before your service call so that it has time to thaw out and proper diagnostics can be run on the unit. Another item to check before calling for service is your thermostat. Is it set to the proper temperature? Is it on cooling mode as it should be?
Inspecting all of these items will help to ensure you’ve done all the standard troubleshooting and a service call is needed.
Recharging Your AC
Often there is a refrigerant leak that is the reason your AC is not working. Refilling with refrigerant is always an option, but make sure it is the best option for you! Discuss with your HVAC repair expert the pros and cons of fixing the leak in your heating and air conditioning system and topping off the freon. Most often, there is no way to know for sure how long repairing the leak and recharging the AC system will keep your air conditioner operational.
