Common AC Problems
The first sign that your air conditioning system may be in need of maintenance is if it is not producing enough cold air. Make sure if you have a standing or window-mounted air conditioning unit that it is clear of any furniture or blockages. Things like tables, chairs, or other types of furniture standing too close to your unit can impede airflow, leading to poor circulation. It is also important to make sure that the filter in your air conditioner is regularly cleaned out. For standing units, follow the manufacturer’s recommended time period when swapping out your filters. For central air systems, make sure to schedule regular maintenance to ensure that your unit is kept at peak condition. Poor air flow can also be caused by vent blockages outside of your home. If your central air system is not producing enough cool air, check to make sure there are no bushes or plants blocking the external airflow, as this can lead to issues with temperature regulation.
In some cases, low air volume for your central air system can be a sign of a blockage within the vents in your wall. While sometimes these blockages can be easily accessed from the vents, for more complex issues your local HVAC team will search out the source of the issue and remove the blockage from within your walls.
If your air conditioning unit is connected to a thermostat system, inefficient cooling can be a sign of a wiring failure within your unit, which can affect the reliability of your thermostat and leave you in the heat. A trained air conditioning repair technician can find the source of the circuitry failure in no time, so you can get back to enjoying your summer without worrying about the heat.
Another symptom of a problem with your air conditioning unit is excessive amounts of moisture in and around your unit. If your air conditioner is leaking more than usual, this can be a sign of a filter problem. However, it can also indicate a more serious problem. Most air conditioners use freon as a coolant system. A freon leakage can be a sign of damaged coolant coils, which will drastically decrease the effectiveness of your unit.
