Why Is My Air Conditioning Not Working?
It’s simple to understand that your air conditioning is not working, however how can you understand what has caused the problem and what you need to do about repairing it? These are the most likely offenders of the problem and an idea of how you or we can fix them and get your air conditioner up and running once again.
● The air conditioning won’t turn on– This means that the system is not getting any power. It might appear apparent but the first thing that you ought to do is inspect to ensure that you have not tripped a breaker. You can reset the breaker yourself by flipping the switch, however if the breaker trips again quickly, you will need to call a service repairman for assistance. If the issue is not the breaker, it could be malfunctioning wiring or an overheated Air Conditioning. An overheated Air Conditioning will often shut itself down as a security feature. Although it may come back on when it cools off, this is not a long term solution, and you really should still call a professional to identify the initial issue so that it does not continue to overheat.
● The AC system’s fan belt is worn out or ready to break– That screeching noise you hear is most likely the fan belt, and this is an indication that it is wearing out. If the belt breaks before a repair is completed, the job will end up being substantially more costly and time consuming. Your AC system will not run with a damaged belt and it will need to be fixed.
● Your system has a refrigerant leak– If your air conditioner is making a hissing noise, then it is most likely that the refrigerant is leaking. This is an environmental danger, and it will keep your system from supplying you with the coolest air possible. Our technicians will stop the leak and recharge your system so everything is back in good working order.
● You have a frozen evaporator coil– Many things can trigger a frozen evaporator coil, including low refrigerant level, consistent operation, and bad flow. This will cause your air conditioning to blow warm air. Turn off your system and contact a professional for proper diagnosis and repair.
● The fan motor isn’t turning on– Without the fan operating properly, air will not circulate. In some cases an HVAC tech can fix an Air Conditioner motor, but often a replacement is required.
● The compressor is defective– If the system comes on and the fan runs, however the air doesn’t feel cool, this is likely an issue with your compressor. Because the compressor is a very costly part of an A/C system, you may want to check out a replacement solution.
● The condensate drain has become clogged– The condensate drain frequently becomes clogged due to a build up of mold, dirt or pests. With time this can result in water leaks and even water damage. Our specialists can flush the line to clear the issue or replace it if damage has already happened.
When Should I Replace My Air Conditioner?
