Common Problems with Air Conditioning Systems

These are some of the most frequent issues with AC systems. You might be able to fix some of these things on your own. However, you should contact us if your air conditioner is leaking refrigerant or making strange noises.

  • Air conditioner won’t turn on. Make sure the thermostat is correctly set before taking a look at the electrical panel for a tripped breaker.
  • Air isn’t cold. Verify thermostat settings are on the right temperature and that your thermostat has power. Then replace the air filter, if you haven’t done this in the past few months. A fresh air filter can increase efficiency and indoor air quality. Make sure the outdoor unit isn’t obstructed by debris and that it isn’t leaking refrigerant. If you discover a refrigerant leak, reach us at 518-417-2938 for repair. If your air conditioner was put in earlier than 2011, it likely relies on a hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) refrigerant called Freon®, or R-22. This refrigerant is no longer being made as a result of its damaging effects on the ozone layer. As only limited, recycled quantities are available, solving a R-22 refrigerant leak can be expensive. We typically recommend air conditioning installation in this instance. 
  • Uneven cooling. Fluctuating temperatures or humidity that’s out of balance are often caused by leaky ducts, not enough insulation or blocked registers. If none of those things are creating the problem, consider adding blackout curtains on south-facing windows. You can also install a zoning system to regulate temperatures in distinct rooms. As another option, a mini-split heat pump with variable refrigerant flow can resolve heating and cooling troubles in rooms that appear uncomfortable. 
  • Water dripping from unit. Inspect the condensate line for clogs. This is the PVC pipe going out of the air conditioner. Leaking refrigerant can also cause ice to collect on the coils and drip water.
  • Air conditioner is making strange noises. Screeching, clanging, banging or clicking sounds indicate potentially serious problems. If you’re noticing strange air conditioner noises, turn it off and call Roland J. Down Service Experts at 518-417-2938.
