Signs of Common Air Conditioner Problems

Posted in: Air Conditioning by

After a long day, you look forward to coming home to a cool and comfortable refuge from the summertime heat and humidity. But sometimes, the unexpected can happen: your air conditioner can break down without you knowing. Understanding the signs of air conditioner problems can prevent this type of situation so that it never happens to you.

Lack of Cooling

A lack of cool air coming through your home’s vents is a sure sign of an air conditioner problem. Whether the unit is blowing an insufficient amount of cool air or whether the air coming out of the vents is warm, either situation spells trouble.

Some causes of this include:

  • Low coolant level
  • Dirty air filter
  • Blown motor

Strange Noises

Air conditioners normally make some humming, whooshing, and clicking sounds during the course of each cycle. However, if you hear any of these noises, the system could have a mechanical problem:

  • Grinding
  • Clanking
  • Popping

Over time, the noises could get louder or more frequent, usually signaling bigger and more expensive problems for you.

System Won’t Cycle Properly

If your air conditioner turns on and off quickly and repeatedly, it could have an electrical issue or coolant leak. Additionally, if the system simply refuses to turn on, there could be an electrical or mechanical problem in the system or a problem with your thermostat. An air conditioner that won’t turn off could have low coolant or some other electrical or mechanical issue.
