Common AC Problems

The anticipation of warmer weather as spring and summer rolls around is one of the highlights of the year. However, the mood can be dampened by a faulty A/C system. Having laid dormant during the colder months, it is common for A/C units to experience some problems when they are finally switched on again. In this guide, we share with you some common A/C problems and what you can do to fix them. If a home fix is unable to resolve the problem, get in touch with the experts at Abraham AC & Heating Services.

Clogged Filter

This problem is common when the A/C unit has not been used for a while, and therefore uncleaned. If dust and other pollutants are caught in your air filter, it can restrict the airflow and reduce the ability of the system to cool air efficiently. Always check your user manual for a recommendation on how often you should clean and change the filter. A typical interval is 3-4 months, however you should do so more often if you have pets at home.

Switch Failure

Have you ever attempted to turn on your A/C unit, only for nothing to happen? This problem can be caused by turning your A/C on and off too often, resulting in the switch connection wearing out. To start up the unit, the compressor, condenser motor and blower motor, which are connected by wires, have to work together. Any disruption or rusting of wires can prevent your unit from turning on. For a DIY fix, check the electrical connection. If you are unable to establish the issue, contact a professional.

Water Leaks

Water leaks can take place either indoors or outdoors. In the case of an indoor leak, you will see water stains on the wall underneath your unit. The likely reason for this is that the condensate drain of your system has been clogged up, usually due to the growth of algae or fungi. Or the condensate pump could have broken down completely, in which case you would need a replacement. To unclog a condensate drain, you can pour vinegar down it to kill off the algae or fungi. Always consult your user manual to determine the exact location of your condensate drain and seek the help of an expert if necessary.

An outdoors water leak will occur underneath the compressor. When you spot this problem, there are several likely causes: improper installation, dry air filter and more. It is best to get in a professional to diagnose and fix the problem.

Absolutely love this company! My a/c unit had an issue and Abraham sent someone over that day. Claudia whom handled my call was sweet and professional. The technician Adam was great..poor thing went on to my roof in a rain shower to check on the unit with no complaint. He was very thorough and serviced the unit rather quickly. Overall price was lower then I expected. With all the rift raft out there, I was very happy I chose to go with Abraham. Thank you!!
