Common Problems with Air Conditioning Systems

These are some of the most regular problems with AC systems. You might be able to fix some of these things on your own. However, you should call us if your air conditioner is leaking refrigerant or making odd noises.

  • Air conditioner won’t turn on. Make sure the thermostat is accurately set before checking the electrical panel for a tripped breaker.
  • Air isn’t cold. Verify thermostat settings are on the right temperature and that your thermostat has power. Then replace the air filter, if you haven’t done this in the past few months. A fresh air filter can increase efficiency and indoor air quality. Make sure the outdoor unit isn’t obstructed by debris and that it isn’t leaking refrigerant. If you find a refrigerant leak, call us at 803-399-7208 for service. If your air conditioner was installed before 2011, it likely relies on a hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) refrigerant known as Freon®, or R-22. This refrigerant is no longer being manufactured as a result of its damaging effects on the ozone layer. Since only limited, recycled quantities are available, repairing a R-22 refrigerant leak can be pricey. We usually suggest air conditioning installation in this instance. 
  • Uneven cooling. Fluctuating temperatures or humidity that’s too high are often caused by leaky ducts, not enough insulation or blocked registers. If none of those things are creating the problem, consider adding blackout curtains on south-facing windows. You can also install a zoning system to regulate temperatures in distinct rooms. As a different option, a mini-split heat pump with variable refrigerant flow can solve heating and cooling issues in spaces that seem uncomfortable. 
  • Water dripping from unit. Inspect the condensate line for clogs. This is the PVC pipe going out of the air conditioner. Leaking refrigerant can also cause ice to build up on the coils and drip water.
  • Air conditioner is making strange noises. Screeching, clanging, banging or clicking sounds suggest potentially dangerous problems. If you’re noticing strange air conditioner noises, turn it off and call Midland Air Service Experts at 803-399-7208.
