Common Air Conditioner Issues

Refrigerant Leaks

Your air conditioner relies on the flow of refrigerant to transfer heat from one place to another. However, the refrigerant can leak, leading to a wide range of issues. Without refrigerant, your AC will be unable to cool your home, and eventually, a leak could lead to a full system breakdown. If you see fluid coming from your AC, be sure to hire a professional to seal the leak and recharge the refrigerant.

Short Cycling

Short cycling is a term used to describe when your system repeatedly turns on and off without ever completing a full cooling cycle. Not only does this put a lot of strain on your system, but it is also extremely inefficient. If you see that your system keeps turning on and off, be sure to contact a professional right away.

Fan Problems

Your air conditioner has two fans: the evaporator fan and the condenser fan. The evaporator fan pushes cool air into your ductwork which the condenser fan helps remove heat from your system. Issues can develop with these fans and lead to a variety of other problems, including poor performance.

Uneven Cooling

Various hot and cold spots throughout your home indicate that there is an issue. There a variety of issues that can cause uneven cooling in your home, so it is important to have your system and your ductwork inspected by a professional to pinpoint the exact source of the problem.
