Signs Your AC is in Need of Repairs
Recognizing early warning signs is the best way to keep repair costs down and your AC running for years to come. Some warning signs that something is seriously wrong with your air conditioner include:
- Frozen AC Unit: Your unit may have low air flow, a blower fan may be broken, or you may need refrigerant. No matter the cause, our team can determine the issue and get it up and running again in no time.
- Strange Smells: This is most common the first time you turn on your AC for the year, and can be a sign of mold on your evaporator coils or possibly inside the ductwork. If you notice a burning smell, then it's most likely a broken part that needs to be fixed.
- AC Will Not Turn On: If you're dealing with this the first thing you should do is check the power connection to the unit to ensure it's actually getting power. This includes checking the circuit breaker for a blown fuse, as well as the thermostat to make sure it's set to the correct temperature. If it's still not running after all these checks, then give us a call!
- Leaking Water: Your air conditioner should never leak inside your home. Condensation on the part of the unit exposed to outside air is normal, but any liquid inside could be a sign of leaking refrigerant.
- Lack of Airflow: This can be caused by debris or dirt collecting around the condenser outside, which will need to be cleared out. It can also be caused by a blockage somewhere inside the system that needs to be cleared out by a professional.
How to Troubleshoot Common AC Issues
If your air conditioner isn't working properly, there are a few troubleshooting steps you can take on your own before calling a professional for repair.
How to figure out why your air conditioner isn't working properly:
- Check your air filter - air filters need to be changed regularly, especially in areas with poor air quality. Santa Clarita is susceptible to frequent fires, and the soot can easily clog filters requiring more frequent filter replacement during fire season. If your air filter is dirty, it will reduce proper airflow and cause your AC to not work as efficiently.
- Check your thermostat - does your thermostat have power? Check to see if the circuit breaker tripped and that your thermostat is turned to the appropriate cooling setting.
- Check your vents - make sure your vents are not closed and that air from your AC system can properly flow throughout your home.
- Check the temperature of the airflow - if you have a thermometer handy (you can even use a food thermometer from your kitchen if needed), check to see how cold the air coming out of your vents is. In order to properly cool your home, the air coming out of your vents needs to be at least 15-20 degrees cooler than the air inside your home. If it's not quite cool enough, you may have a Freon leak which would require professional repair.
If you have tried the above steps and still can't get to the bottom of why your air conditioner isn't effectively cooling your home, be sure to reach out to Sol-Aire Conditioning Co. for AC repair in SCV!
