There are many kinds of common AC problems, some of which are caused by defective installation and poor maintenance of the AC and heating system. Here are some of them to be on the lookout for.
Refrigerant Leakage: With your air conditioner you might see some ice along the indoor coils, notice there is a drop in cooling power, or you sometimes hear a strange hissing like sound coming from the air conditioner’s cabinet. If any of this then you may have a problem with refrigerant leaking. This sometimes happens due to corrosion that developed on the system during the winter and that causes some very small holes that will allow the refrigerant to escape. If this is the case then you should call a professional AC company and have them find and seal the leaks and bring the refrigerant to the proper level.
AC is taking long to start: If your air conditioner seems likes it’s struggling when it comes on that most likely it is having hard starting and is also draining energy. The hard starting can happen due to a number of different reasons, and the most common is a failing start capacitor, which is the device that transmits voltage to the compressor motor which starts it up. If the capacitor fails altogether the compressor motor won’t be able to work. We can change out the old capacitor and install a new one so make sure you contact someone as soon as you hear the noise
Your AC is dusty or has dirty motors: If your AC does not change the air filter at the beginning of spring and or every month during the hot summers then a lot of dirt and dust contamination could have got into the cabinet and affected the motors. Because of this the motors will have to work a lot harder and this can lead to burning the system out and then it will require a replacement. If you hear screeching and grinding noises from inside the system or have a smell coming from the vents, this can indicate a motor on the it’s way of breaking down.
In a nutshell most of the air conditioning repairs are not difficult for professionals like Advanced Heating and Air and the work to fix the problem should not take to long to complete as long as you contact them as soon as possible. As they say, the longer you wait, the worse the repair will get and it will go viral from there and it will lead to other AC problems. Stay cool this summer.
