Common AC Problems We Fix

Your air conditioner uses refrigerant to remove heat and humidity from the air in your home. A refrigerant leak could reduce your AC system’s ability to cool the air. Fixing low AC refrigerant isn’t as simple as refilling the refrigerant; we may need to repair leaks, which can be a costly repair. Proper AC maintenance can help reduce your risk of leaks.

Your air conditioner’s evaporator coil is responsible for absorbing the heat from the air. Without proper airflow, the AC evaporator coil can freeze up, which causes warm air (or no air) to circulate when your AC is running.

The fan that blows indoor air over your air conditioner’s evaporator coil is one of the most common AC part replacements. When blower fans fail due to lack of lubrication, worn fan belts or inadequate maintenance, you’re susceptible to compressor failure, which usually means you’ll be buying a replacement air conditioner.

If your air conditioner isn’t getting proper instructions from your thermostat, you may need to calibrate or replace your thermostats. Programmable thermostats can be finicky, too. We can replace your thermostats if needed, although we always start with a diagnostic test to identify the true reason your AC isn’t working.

Call our Charlotte location at 980.222.0172 today if your AC isn’t cooling your home. Avoiding a service call may result in a small problem turning into a large, costly repair or an expensive AC replacement.

Signs Your Air Conditioner Needs Repair

  • Uneven or inefficient cooling, even when the system is running
  • The system is freezing
  • The system is leaking
  • Unusual or loud sounds from the system
  • Unusual smells from the system, particularly burning or musty smells

AC Repair Frequently Asked Questions in Charlotte, NC(FAQS)

Your air conditioner can leak for numerous reasons, including dirty air filters. When the air filtration system is filthy, it clogs the airways, leading to freezing evaporator coils that leak water into the unit. Improper installation of the air conditioner can also cause leaking if the installer leaves gaps or incorrectly connects vital parts. Another reason behind AC leaks could be refrigerant leaks due to weak connections, sealant, and corrosion of the lines.

An AC produces warm instead of cold soothing air for several reasons, such as system failure. Its compressor, air filters, motors, and other vital parts can fail due to lack of proper maintenance, making the system inefficient in producing warm air. Other reasons behind no cold air from an air conditioner are refrigerant leaks, incorrect thermostat settings, and dirty air ducts and filters.

An air conditioner can fail to turn on for several reasons, including faulty electrical parts such as loose or damaged wiring. Failing capacitors and sensors or faulty thermostats can also cause your AC not to turn on. Sometimes, the problem could be power-related if a circuit trips due to an overloaded circuit or a blown fuse that fails to supply power to your system.

After years of operation or as it ages, an AC can start malfunctioning, thus not as efficient as it was when new. Lack of regular tune-ups also causes air conditioners to fail to provide much-needed comfort during summer. In addition, if the refrigerant levels are lower than the factory-set limit, the system cannot function at its peak. Leaking air ducts can also affect the performance of your air conditioning unit.

Your AC can fail to cool some rooms in your home if the specific rooms have poor insulation due to cracked windows or inefficient doors, allowing heat gain and loss. Leaking ductwork, clogged vents, and poor installation can make an AC perform inefficiently in certain parts of a house. Buying an incorrectly sized, especially an undersized AC, is a possible cause of insufficient cooling in your household.

An air conditioner can produce several odors, including electrical, oily, sulfuric, gas, or musty smells. Such odors indicate issues that should prompt you to ask for help whenever you perceive them. Some of the reasons behind the smells are mold growth, electrical mishaps, gas leaks, and oil leaks.

Evaporator coils are likely to freeze due to several issues in the system, including dirty or clogged air filters, air ducts, and evaporator coils. The blocked ducts and filters restrict air from reaching the evaporator coils, causing ice buildup. Low refrigerant levels, faulty thermostats, malfunctioning blower motors, and defective expansion valves can also cause the evaporator coils to freeze.

Your air conditioner can generate unusual sounds, such as rattling, vibrating, screeching, buzzing, humming, squealing, gurgling, hissing, or banging. Reasons behind the abnormal noise from an air conditioner include loose parts or defective or misaligned blower bearings. Loose electrical connections, broken fan blades, refrigerant leaks, and air leaks from the ductwork can also make the air conditioning unit produce unusual sounds.
