  • Constant AC Operation - While it's normal for your air conditioner to run more often during hot weather, it should still cycle off periodically. If your AC seems to run continuously, it's essential to address this issue to prevent damage to components and excessive energy consumption. Continuous operation can stem from various factors, including thermostat malfunctions, compressor issues, clogged air filters, or electrical problems.
  • AC Failure to Start - Waking up to an air conditioner that won't turn on can be frustrating. Even if you adjust the thermostat to a lower temperature, the AC remains unresponsive. This problem can occur due to a tripped circuit breaker, a faulty thermostat, or loose wiring.
  • Insufficient Cool Air - Insufficient cooling can manifest in two ways: either the AC runs, but no air comes from the vents, or the air feels lukewarm rather than cool. Often, a tripped circuit breaker is to blame, easily rectified. Worn blower belts might also need replacement, and low refrigerant levels can impact cooling efficiency.
  • Blowing Hot Air - Experiencing warm air instead of cool air from your AC is certainly undesirable, particularly during the sweltering months. Several factors can contribute to hot air blowing, including a dirty air filter, duct obstructions, debris causing compressor overheating, or low refrigerant levels.
  • Refrigerant or Water Leaks - Refrigerant leaks are often hard to detect, as they typically occur in coolant lines. Meanwhile, brightly colored stains near the AC unit indicate problems. Excessive moisture can also indicate water leaks. Degraded lines and connections within the AC system lead to refrigerant leaks. Blocked drainage pipes and faulty condensate pumps can cause water leaks.
  • Frequent On-and-Off Cycling - Known as short cycling, this issue involves the AC repeatedly turning on and off without completing a cooling cycle. This behavior can harm the compressor. Factors like clogged air filters, misaligned thermostats, or an overpowered AC unit can trigger short cycling.
  • AC Freezing - Ice forming around the A/C coil and copper line set indicates that your system is working excessively to cool your home, potentially raising electricity bills. While air conditioners work harder in hot weather, freezing isn't normal. Dirty air filters or condenser units can cause the AC to overwork for the same cooling effect.
  • Circuit Breaker Tripping - If your air conditioner trips the circuit breaker every time it starts, this recurrent issue can be highly inconvenient. Poor AC installation, such as using inadequately rated circuit breakers or wiring, can lead to frequent tripping.
  • Unusual Odors - Unpleasant odors, including burning or musty smells, emanating from your AC system can indicate various issues. Electrical odors might signal motor wiring problems, while dirty air filters can cause overheating and burning smells. Musty odors may result from improper drainage.
  • Unusual Noises - Strange noises like vibrations, squealing, or grinding sounds should be addressed immediately, as they could signify underlying problems. Squealing noises often result from worn or misaligned belts, while grinding noises often indicate motor bearing issues.

Don't let your AC installation fall by the wayside if your AC unit is no longer working and needs to be repaired or replaced. Finding a nice AC unit to replace your old one is a big decision that requires some thought. What kind of home air conditioner do you require? What size do you require? Should you replace your air conditioner, or can it be repaired? What are the rules of geography, climate, and energy where you live? All of these considerations influence the AC unit you require and how to install it.
