How Do You Know If Your AC Unit is Going Bad?
There are several ways to know if your AC unit is going bad or needs a tune-up, including excess moisture, strange smells, poor airflow, or unusual sounds.
If there is excess moisture on or around your HVAC, it is an indication that something is not working properly. It could be leaking water or coolant, and either of these issues requires professional repairs.
There should not be any noticeable smells coming from your vents or AC unit – if you smell something musty and moldy or a burning electrical smell, there is likely a problem with your air conditioner. Contact a professional immediately as this could be a safety hazard!
Poor Air Flow
Have you noticed that the air doesn’t seem to be flowing from your vents like it used to? Poor airflow can mean that there is a clogged filter, a leak, a problem with the evaporator coil, or more. If your air conditioning is not cooling, don’t wait until the air has stopped flowing before you reach out to us.
If you hear buzzing, clicking, banging, or any other strange noises – outside of the normal on and off cycles – your AC unit may need service. These sounds could mean several different things, so we recommend consulting with a professional to determine exactly what is wrong with your air conditioner.
Common Problems with Air Conditioners
Many common problems will require you to hire an HVAC company for repairs. You may have water leaks, a system that does not turn on, problems with the fan, or continuous short cycling. Let’s discuss some of these common issues in more detail:
If you have noticed water pooling around your AC unit, you likely need a professional to come out and inspect it. It could be caused by a clogged air filter – or something more serious!
Water leaks inside of your house may mean that you have a clogged condensate drain line or one that needs to be replaced. This water will continue to back up if the issue is not corrected, and eventually it will overflow into your home.
The Unit Won’t Start
One of the most frustrating issues with an air conditioner is when it does not turn one. There are many different reasons that this may be happening, but it may be caused by a clogged air filter, a thermostat short, or a stuck fan relay.
When your system does not power on, the experts at Poe’s Heating and Air can help you get back up and running!
Another common problem with air conditioners is a faulty fan. The fan may completely stop working if the breaker has tripped, but if the breaker is still on, then there is likely another underlying electrical issue. If the breaker has tripped, this could be another issue altogether!
Fan issues can also be caused by a broken fan belt, a buildup of rust or dirt, frozen coils, or a bad capacitor.
Short cycling refers to when your HVAC kicks on and off frequently, and this can take a major toll on your AC unit.
If your air conditioner is low on refrigerant, the condenser can overheat – and this can cause the system to short cycle. Short cycling can be caused by an issue with the thermostat. A professional can perform various tests to verify that this is the cause.
A dirty air filter also leads to short cycling because it impedes air from flowing properly through your system. The buildup causes the HVAC to work too hard and overheat, therefore shutting off automatically. If there is any ice built up on the evaporator coils, this can easily cause your AC unit to short cycle.
