Your AC isn’t working properly: there’s a funny noise, it’s not cooling enough or maintaining temperature. But, you are not sure what’s causing it or what air conditioning repair is needed? This is quite common, particularly with older AC systems. Although it’s usually ideal to call for professional repair services in such cases, it’s helpful to be able to troubleshoot some of the most common problems that crop up with AC systems – and repair them if you can, before one problem creates more problems.
Common air conditioning problems you can fix yourself
- Incorrect operation:
Your central air conditioning will not work properly if the doors and windows are open.
- Improper drainage:
Dirty drains or old mountings can prevent proper drainage.
- Dirty filters:
You can clean and replace them yourself. Or you can call in an air conditioning service. You can get new filters from air conditioning services.
Air conditioning problems that will require professional air conditioning repair services
- Refrigerant leaks:
You will need to call in your HVAC for this one, as a part will need to be replaced. Ideally, this shouldn’t happen if the system has been serviced regularly. Planning regular services will help prevent this problem from occurring in the future.
- Electric control and thermostat sensor failure:
Compressor and fan controls can wear out and will need to be replaced. Your thermostat sensor may also fail if it has been positioned badly or knocked out of position; it may also have to be replaced.
