Signs of a Failing Air Conditioner

Some air conditioner issues are quite obvious – if your AC blows warm air or stops functioning altogether, it’s obvious you need an air conditioner repair. Some issues, however, are less apparent without the trained eyes of a professional. In order to determine whether your home or place of business requires AC repair, there are several warning signs you should be aware of at all times. Keeping a close eye on these signs may even save you money in the long run, allowing you to have minor issues repaired before they become more serious problems.

Lack of Cold Air

You may notice that the air from your AC is no longer as cold as it used to be, even on the lowest temperature settings. Your system may even begin to blow warm air. There are several causes for this, but the most common are a failing compressor and low coolant levels.

Loud/Unusual Noises

Have you noticed squealing, grinding or other loud noises while your AC unit is in operation? If so, this may be an indicator of inadequate lubrication, damaged bearings or another hardware failure.

HVAC System Leaks

Some condensation is normal for an air conditioning unit, but the appearance of a leak requires prompt AC repair. If there’s a water leak, you may have a blocked or broken drain tube. This can cause water to pool and may lead to mold growth and corrosion. A refrigerant leak is even more serious and could present serious health risks if not addressed quickly.

Unpleasant Odors

The sudden appearance of an unusual smell, such as a moldy, musty, acrid or burnt odor, can be a sign of mold and mildew growth, burnt wires and other hardware issues. If you’ve noticed any of these or other unusual smells associated with your HVAC system, it’s time to schedule an appointment with an AC repair technician.

Poor Air Flow

Is your air conditioner putting out a low volume of air? Is it no longer cooling your home or business adequately? This, again, can be caused by a failing compressor. It may also indicate blocked filters or problems with the ducting, which should be investigated by a professional.

Old Air Conditioner

The lifespan of an air conditioner is about ten to 15 years. If it is still doing it’s job then there is no need to make an immediate change, however chances are, a replacement is not far off.
