The Most Common Air Conditioner Repair Issue
In short, the most common issue we see is that the unit does not blow cold enough or it does not blow cold at all. Unfortunately, many causes exist for this issue. Your AC, heat pump, or other cooling unit may not blow cold because:
- Clogged or dirty air filter.
- Electrical wiring failure.
- Failure in power source such as electricity, gas, or other.
- A major component has failed such as the compressor, evaporator, or other.
- Thermostat is set incorrectly, needs batteries, or needs to be programmed correctly.
- And a number of other issues.
How to Diagnose an Air Conditioner
You may attempt to diagnose and fix the AC yourself by doing a few simple things. First, change the batteries on your thermostat then set it to lower than usual. Check the vents for cold air. This may fix any thermostat issues you have. Set the thermostat to normal if this fixes the issue.
Go to the fuse box and turn the switch for the HVAC system off. Wait a few minutes, then power on again. Check to see if the AC powers on and blows cold.
Check the HVAC filter. Look for excessive dust, clogs, or other items that may be restricting the air flow. Change the air filter for a new one and make sure it faces the right way. Again check to see if the AC blows cold.
Call a trusted HVAC professional in your area if none of these fixes work. Be sure to tell them which fixes you attempted. You may also listen to the unit – both the indoor and outdoor ones if applicable – to see if anything sounds off. This can help them locate the issue.
How to Avoid the Most Common AC Repairs
The best way to avoid this and other unnecessary AC repairs is to perform regular maintenance. You may change the filter on a regular basis yourself, as well as clean the outdoor unit and keep it free of debris. In addition, we recommend having a professional perform AC maintenance on your unit each year. The best time is right before the warm season begins but better late than never.
