Signs That Your Air Conditioner Is In Need Of Repair
When your air conditioner is experiencing an issue, you may notice a number of warning signs. Be on the lookout for these, as they can indicate your system is breaking down. In order to prevent further problems or extensive damage to your unit, reach out to a professional Richmond air conditioning repair technician as soon as you notice any of the following.
How To Tell If Your AC Unit Needs To Be Serviced
- Warm air – Usually, this issue can be fixed by refilling the coolant, which can be done very quickly by an expert. However, it can also be a sign of a larger (and more expensive) issue.
- Loud noises – Air conditioners aren’t designed to be noisy systems. If you’re hearing more noise than usual coming from your unit, it’s time to call an expert to do a system check.
- Weak airflow – The quality of airflow from your air conditioner depends largely on the age of your air filter. If you have recently changed your filter and are still experiencing weakened airflow, you’ll need to call a professional. This could be a sign of a larger blower problem with your system.
- Leaks – If you start to notice leaks around or near your system, have an expert check it out right away. It could be a refrigerant leak, which is a serious health risk. It could also be due to a blocked or broken drain tube, which could lead to mold.
- Strange smells – Musty smells coming from your air conditioner generally indicate mold inside your unit or ductwork. More pungent smells could be a sign that your air conditioner’s wire insulation has burned out.
Diagnosing The Problem
Whether your home's AC system simply won’t work or you’re dealing with another issue, identifying problems early on can expedite the repair process. A wide range of factors can influence your AC’s performance, and recognizing potential issues can help you discuss the right solution with your certified Richmond AC repair technician.
Common Causes Of Air Conditioning Problems
- The outside unit is not functional, which could mean a broken thermostat or lack of power to the unit.
- The AC coil is frozen, which might be caused by a lack of airflow, low refrigerant, or could simply mean you need a new filter.
- The outside fan doesn’t work, which can cause the AC compressor to overheat and trip safety overload feature.
- The air conditioning unit needs refrigerant (or Freon), which may indicate a leak or problems with the refrigerant system.
- The AC’s wiring is bad, which may trip the AC circuit breaker and keep the outside unit from getting a power supply.
