Common Air Conditioning Problems – Why Air Conditioners Stop Working
According to the Department of Energy, one of the most common problems occurs under incorrect operating conditions. Surprisingly, many homeowners fail to close their home’s windows and outside doors.
The Five Most Common Reasons for Air Conditioning Problems:
Refrigerant Leaks – a trained technician should fix any leak, test the repair, and then charge the system with the appropriate amount of refrigerant.
Inadequate Maintenance – Routine service maintenance is essential to keeping your unit running at optimal performance. But dirty air filters or dirty air conditioning coils could keep the air conditioner from working properly. This could also cause the compressor or fans to fail prematurely and could lead to greater repair costs.
Electric Control Failure – Compressor and Fan Controls can wear out or the Compositor could fail. Corrosion of wire and terminals need to be inspected during routine service maintenance to make sure that the connections and contacts are working properly by a certified heating and air technician
Electronic Sensor Problems
The thermostat sensor which is an internal part behind the control panel that measures air temperature could not working properly. This would cause the air conditioner or heating unit not to turn on or behave erratically.
Many of today’s Home Heating and Air Conditioning air handling units are installed in the attic to conserve living space. Often, there is a drainage overflow pan with a safety switch designed to prevent damage to the living space below if the a/c drainage pipe should be clogged. This switch will keep your air conditioning from potentially turning on and overflowing the pan.
Some other common signals that your residential air conditioning or heating system is not functioning properly is:
- Weird noises or vibrating occur at startup or during operation
- Warm air is felt coming out of the air vents in cooling mode, or no warmth is felt during the heating cycle.
- The unit hums, but the fan doesn’t turn on
- The fan runs, but the outside unit isn’t running while in cooling mode.
- Water is pooling around the air conditioner
