Signs Your Air Conditioner Needs Repair
It’s really not difficult to tell if your home is needing air conditioning repair service. If you notice any of the following warning signs, it’s important for you to call Sanborn’s to schedule a complete AC system inspection.
Your air conditioner should go through relatively routine cooling cycles, no matter the weather. While you can expect your cooling system to turn on more frequently on the hottest days of summer, it shouldn’t cycle on and off constantly.
When you feel warm air blowing out of your home’s vents, check the thermostat. Make sure it’s switched to cooling mode, and set it lower than your home’s current temperature. If your vents still blow warm air, restricted airflow or a compressor issue may be to blame.
Poor airflow is a common sign that your air conditioner isn’t working efficiently or that a blockage is preventing air from moving through your home’s ductwork. This could be the result of a clogged air filter, a broken motor or something even more serious.
A rattling or buzzing noise can indicate a loose part, while whistling or grinding noises can signal something more serious. This type of issue won’t typically go away on its own, so a professional tune up is essential. Our technicians will find the source of the problem and recommend the right solution.
Your air conditioner should moderate humidity levels automatically. But if your cooling system can’t keep moisture levels within a comfortable range, you definitely will need your air conditioner inspected.
Pooled water or an active leak around your air conditioner is an important sign that your cooling system isn’t running properly. Don’t wait to call our air conditioning service technicians. Leaks can cause damage to your home and may even lead to serious structural issues.
If you smell unpleasant odors and suspect that they’re coming from your HVAC system, you’ll want to deal with the issue before it becomes smellier. Fortunately, a quick diagnostic visit will tell us whether your air conditioner needs a tune up and a complete cleaning session or if your cooling system needs a more high-tech solution.
What To Do if AC Isn’t Working
There are a lot of common issues your air conditioning unit can experience. Before you begin checking the things described below, make sure you do the following things to help make your diagnostic process easier.
- Make sure that all windows and doors are closed.
- Make sure your supply and return vents are open and not blocked by anything.
- Make sure that your thermostat is set to cool, and is turned down below your current room temperature.
- Turn off any humidifiers you may have running in the home.
- If your unit has a red RESET button near the refrigerant line, try pushing it. This may correct the problem.
If your system isn’t working as it is supposed to, here are several areas of your unit that you should check and if you are comfortable, some do it yourself maintenance to complete.
Change the Filter
This alone may result in a significant increase your air conditioner’s cooling capacity.
Clean the Fins
If these are dirty and clogged by debris, air flow within your unit may be restricted, which can severely affect the system’s efficiency.
Check Your Wiring
Make sure you examine all of the wiring within your unit, especially the wiring connected to an outlet. If you have a tripped breaker or a blown fuse, it is time to bring in an electrician.
Check Your Ductwork
If your ductwork is cracked or lacks proper sealing, your air conditioning may be dissipating inefficiently around you without you ever being aware of its presence.
Check for Refrigerant Leaks
Leaks may also simply be a result of old age. If left unmanaged, refrigerant leaks can severely inhibit the ability of your HVAC to function.
