3 Common AC Problems to Avoid

We love talking about AC repair in Egg Harbor Township.

It’s not just about informing you, but it’s about helping you notice when there’s something wrong so you can call the professionals like us.

Have you ever wanted to know some of the most common air conditioner problems that can occur? Some of them are so common that they could be affecting your air conditioner right now!

Don’t worry. We’ll go into detail about the most common AC issues we see and what can be done about them. If you pay close attention, we’ll mention some of the warning signs that you’re dealing with a problem and when the perfect time would be to call a professional.

Take Note

Unfortunately, we won’t be able to help with your air conditioner problems unless you call us when you detect the signs. That’s what this blog is for! Here are some problems with clues that should key you in that something is wrong. If you notice one of these signs and call us, we promise we’ll take the necessary steps to mitigate further damage and provide the least expensive repair.

Refrigerant Leak

When a technician checks on an air conditioner, they usually recharge the refrigerant. This isn’t for any other reason than this material being vital to the cooling process and that it’s just good business practice. That being said, if your system is constantly low on refrigerant, then you’re probably dealing with a refrigerant leak.

Refrigerant is not meant to be consumed by the system. It’s not like gasoline in a car. Each air conditioner is designed with enough refrigerant to last its entire lifespan. This refrigerant is kept at high pressures, so sometimes that pressure can spring a leak and cause the gaseous material to escape. This can be seriously detrimental to the efficiency of the system. If you notice a hissing or bubbling sound, as well as drops in cooling efficacy and efficiency, then call our team to address your possible refrigerant leak.

Out of Balance Blower or Fan

Sometimes represented by a banging or a clanging, this issue can range from being a minor inconvenience to catastrophic for your AC. Over time, blowers and fans can fall out of alignment and become loose as they constantly spin. This might start off with an obnoxious sound that makes you uncomfortable. However, loose parts can quickly bump into more sensitive components of your system, causing worse problems to compound. Call us to address the issue.

Poor Airflow

First of all, make sure all the vents in your home are unobstructed. If this involves moving furniture, then take a break from reading and go push some sofas. If that doesn’t help, try replacing the air filter in your air conditioner. Each of these practices ensures that there’s nothing physically blocking the airflow from your air conditioner to the rooms of your home. If the filter is clean and the vents are unobstructed, then it’s time to call a professional for help.
