As much as we would love a problem free summer, your AC can still have very common problems over the summer. Some problems you can eliminate by taking proper care of the AC. But then there are other problems that you will need a professional for. Knowing what these common problems are can help you know what is going on with your AC if it happens to you. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning outline them below.
Clogged Air Filters
One of the most common problems your AC could have in the summer is that you have not changed out your air filters. If your air filters are not changed out every 1 to 3 months, it could start clogging your air filters with all the dust and debris that gets sucked up into the air filters. If they are not changed out, it could cause serious issues such as system failure, lack of cooling, or serious airflow problems. Air filters are really easy to change out and can save your AC from having a breakdown.
Warm Air Blowing from Vents
If you have your AC on and it is blowing warm air in the summer, you know that is not good. Having warm air blow in the summer is actually a very common problem though. There could be different reasons behind this. There could be a bad connection between your thermostat, dirty air filters, a broken fan, or you have a refrigerant leak.
The refrigerant is a huge part of your AC running effectively. It absorbs the heat and the humidity and then cools down your house. If there is a leak then it cannot do its job properly. If you have a small leak you can add to it so it is filled up. But with a leak or if the leak gets bigger, then you’ll start having problems with your AC and it will become less efficient. The best thing, if you have a leak, is to get it fixed.
AC Won’t Turn On
What happens when your AC won’t even turn on? This could be an electrical issue. You may want to check plugs if there is a blown fuse or a tripped breaker. It could also be a capacitor problem. This helps start the fan so if it is not running, then the fan will not turn on. If you have checked your breaker and power and it still isn’t working then call a professional to come check out why your AC is not running.
Strange AC Noises
Your AC should not be making any strange noises. Besides hearing the air blow and maybe it clicking on, you should not hear any other sound. If you are hearing any sound such as squealing, banging, buzzing, or rattling, then you need to call a professional to come check it out. Each one of these sounds can mean a different problem that is happening to your AC. Squealing could be the fan or compresser, banging can be a loose compressor, buzzing can be electrical issues, and rattling could be obstructed airflow or something is loose in your AC.
