How Do I Know if My Air Conditioner Needs Repair?
Below is a list of symptoms of a broken or inefficient AC system. If your air conditioner has any of these symptoms, it likely needs service.
High electric bill
If your AC system is not functioning properly, it can cause your energy bill to spike. This is because it’s having to use more power and energy than it normally does. No one wants to be stuck with higher bills.
Rattling or hissing sounds
AC systems make noise, but sometimes this noise can be an indication of a larger issue. If you start to notice unusual or loud noises coming from your AC unit, it may mean you need service.
AC unit won’t turn on
It’s important to make sure the unit has power. If you know there is power running to the system, it could be a more complex issue like compressor failure.
AC unit is on, but it’s blowing warm air
Feeling warm air coming from the supply vents when the thermostat is set to cool is a sign that your system needs work.
High humidity indoors could mean that your AC system isn’t pulling that humidity out or it wasn't set-up properly to adequately remove humidity for those hot NC summers.
Bad, moldy, dirty sock odors
Dank, moldy, or dirty sock smells coming from the AC could mean that your unit or vent needs cleaning, or potentially is leaking water.
Smelling something burning, strong fishy odors from the AC, or noticing that the unit is constantly turning itself on and off is a major indicator that your AC system is overheating.
Certain rooms are hotter than others
It is common when an AC system is acting up to have room with large temperature differences. This could be problems with ducts, thermostats, air balance, or multi-system issues.
AC fan isn’t moving
If you know that the system has power but the fan still isn’t moving, it could be a sign of a bad fan motor.
Outside AC unit has ice on lines
Anytime you see ice forming on the outside system, this is a clear sign you need to have your system serviced.
Water stains or flooding
If you notice water stains or flooding around your AC unit or air handler, this could be from clogged drainage or bad water pumps.
AC never turns off
If your AC constantly runs without shutting off, your could have a fan or electrical problem.
AC breaker keeps tripping
If you've tried resetting the breaker but it's still tripping, this may require electrical, AC, or both to be repaired.
Thermostat isn't correct
If you've set the thermostat but it keeps resetting, doesn't maintain air or fan, then it may need to be recalibrated or replaced.
Lights dim or flicker when AC turns on
House lights flickering or dimming when the AC turns on is a sign of power-draw, capacitor, or compressor issues.
Common AC Repairs
The cost of an AC repair can be hard to pinpoint. It normally includes diagnosis, parts, professional labor, and potential other fees like local permits or taxes. Below is a list of common AC problems and what it takes to fix them.
Dirty or bad filters
If your filters are dirty or bad, you may experience higher energy bills, bad smells, and higher temperatures indoors.
Low or leaking refrigerant or Freon
Refrigerant (sometimes called Freon) circulates through your AC system and cools the air. If you have low or leaking refrigerant, your AC unit won’t be able to lower air temperatures. That means it can't cool your home.
First, we'll need to stop any leaks. Then we have to add the proper amount of refrigerant. This is not as simple as just adding refrigerant - you need to precisely measure what is needed based on several factors. If you don't measure refrigerant properly, you could add to little or too much (under or over charge).
Faulty or broken AC compressor
The AC compressor is the most vital and often most expensive part of your AC system. It's like the heart - it pumps refrigerant through the system so it can cool your home.
Diagnosing an AC compressor means testing multiple aspects of your system. That way we can know not only what's wrong with the compressor, but also maybe what caused it to break.
Dirty or damaged AC condenser coil
The AC evaporator coil usually sits on the outside of your home and helps expel heat. However, it can get clogged, damaged, or dirty, causing energy spikes and your system to overheat.
Sometimes it's as simple as a good cleaning with a few minor repairs. But in worse cases, the evaporator coil may need to be replaced.
Clogged AC drain line
While cooling the air in your home, your AC pulls out some moisture. This moisture collects on the evaporator coil in your home, drips down into a pay, and drains outside through the condensate drain. If the coil or condensate drain line gets clogged, water may back up. This can cause water damage and odors.
Sometimes it's as simple as a good cleaning with a few minor repairs, but sometimes you need a pump to help remove the water.
Weak or broken capacitor
The capacitor supplies energy to the AC unit’s fan and its motors to help them start or turn on. With a broken or malfunctioning capacitor, your system may still work, but may cause other electrical parts to wear or fail. It's a small problem, but left unfixed, can cause big issues.
Normally, checking and replacing a capacitor is easy, but we sometimes check other components to ensure the bad capacitor isn't the only damaged part.
Supply, return, or ductwork problems
For your air conditioner to work, it needs to freely cycle air through your home. If at any point the air is blocked or restricted, your AC system won't be able to work properly.
Sometimes your home may not have enough returns, or some of the ductwork is damaged or restricted. Whatever it is, we can find and fix the problem!
Electrical or circuit board failure
There are multiple electronic controls in your AC system: your thermostat, ICM or circuit board, inverter modules, etc. Combined, they act like the nervous system, telling each part what to do and when to do it.
Diagnosing AC electrical problems requires tools and smarts. Sometimes a single problem is caused by a few faulty components.
Faulty thermostat or wiring
The thermostat controls your entire AC system - when to turn on, how cold you want your home, schedule, fan use, etc. Think of it as the brain of your system.
Sometimes it's as simple as replacing a battery, but sometimes the thermostat needs to be calibrated or repaired.
