Common AC Problems

When something in their home breaks or doesn’t work properly, it’s not uncommon for people to jump the worst case scenario as to what’s causing the mishap. But often, the problem is more common than one would assume. If your air conditioner is on the fritz, it may be suffering from one of these common AC problems.

Improper Operation

One of the most common AC problems is poor operation. For example, you’d be surprised how many homeowners run their air conditioners while still having their windows open. This makes your unit to work harder to cool your home and may cause it to break down sooner.

Refrigerant Leaks

If your AC is low on refrigerant, you could have one of two problems: improper installation or leaking. If it’s leaking, you’ll need to call an HVAC technician to fix the leak, test it, and charge the system with the right amount of refrigerant. If you leave the leak alone, you’ll not only cause your unit to perform poorly, but you’ll also be harming the environment since refrigerant leaks are dangerous for the planet.

Not Enough Maintenance

We don’t preach about maintenance just to do it. If you leave dirty air filters in your unit or don’t clean your AC coils enough, your unit won’t run efficiently and will most likely break down early. So do yourself a favor, and do your maintenance!
