Common A/C Problems

If you have ever spent a hot summer day sitting inside a home or building without air conditioning, it is definitely an experience you do not want to relive. With spring kicking into full gear, and summertime on its way, it is important to learn about some common A/C problems and a few tips on how to avoid repair problems.

Water Leaks from the A/C

If your home may not be getting the proper cooling and may start to feel warm, this can be a sign that your air conditioning unit is leaking and needs repair. If left unchecked, water leakage can lead to more serious issues like mold and milder growth. So it is important to check the A/C unit for any debris or trash buildup as this can often cause airflow problems within your heating and cooling system.

Regular Inspection & Maintenance Can Help Extend The Lifespan of your A/C Unit

The Air is Blowing, but isn’t Cold

If your home or building feels warm or hot even with the air conditioning running on high this can be the result of a number of issues. Try changing the air filter if you have not done so already.  You might need a new air filter if your thermostat is set all the way  to the coldest temperature and you do not feel a difference in your home’s climate.

The Air Conditioner Stops Working

If your A/C unit has stopped working or unexpectedly shut down, the thermostat batteries might be dead and may need to be replaced. Make sure to check that the thermostat is in the cooling position. If the thermostat is not the problem, double check that the circuit breaker is set to the “on” position. If the problem still persists, contact us at (714) 464-6622.
