Subtle Signs of Air Conditioning Problems

Do you find it difficult to tell if your cooling unit needs repair or replacement? Since you will be dependent on your air conditioning system to keep you comfortable when the temperatures rise, it is necessary to spot those future problems ahead of time.

No worries! We have compiled a list of subtle symptoms of AC problems. See if your cooling unit possesses any of these signs.

Odd Noises

Does your air conditioner produce strange noises like clicking, grinding and squealing sounds? These noises indicate that your A/C may fail to function effectively at any time. Strange sounds imply that something is broken on the motor or other parts of the unit. Failure to give immediate repair can lead to system breakdown.

Thermostat Issues

There are instances that the problem is not on the unit but with the thermostat. You might be dealing with thermostat issues if uneven temperature is noticeable in the house.  Some parts may seem too cold while other areas remain at normal temperature.

Strange Odors

Foul smells from your air conditioning unit are signs of burned out or melting wire insulation. If you smell a pungent odor then it means that mold has taken over your unit inside. Do not delay the solution to prevent further damage and inconvenience.

Poor Air Flow

Your A/C might need urgent repair if there is poor air flow. You should check the vents and registers if furniture is blocking the flow of air. Poor airflow may also be caused by dirt, dust and other debris blocking the air duct. With this, you will need a professional’s help for duct cleaning solution.

No Cool Air Coming Out

Your air conditioning unit is built to give you cool air. If it is warm air that comes out of your registers and vents, then there is something wrong with your A/C. Try running your unit on full blast, if the problem remains, you need to call an HVAC technician to do a thorough check on the issue at hand.

Water Drips

Once you notice water drips on the unit, it is an indication that moisture has developed somewhere inside. The moisture which turned into warm droplets may be flooding the drain line.
