4 Common Air Conditioning Problems and what to do about
Having an air conditioning system in your home can be a real
blessing when it is hot outside, but it can also be a real
pain when it isn’t working properly. Luckily, there are many
little problems that are common to most air conditioning
systems that you can easily diagnose and fix yourself. By
doing your own repairs, and having regular maintenance
inspections done on your system, you are going to be able to
keep your system operating properly, and save a lot of money
over the years between not having to hire a professional for
repairs and not having to replace the system completely. Of
course, there will be some situations where professional
repairs will be necessary, which will be discussed
throughout this article. The following are common air
conditioning problems, and what to do about them.
Not enough Air Flow
If you are noticing that there isn’t a lot of air flow in
the aircon system, it may be that the filters are dirty.
When dirt builds up on the filters, it blocks the flow of
air, and you aren’t going to get as much cool air as you
would like. It is also going to make the system work harder,
and it is going to increase your energy bills. This is an
easy fix that only takes a few minutes. Depending on the
type of filter your system uses, the steps will be
If your system uses a permanent filter, you will need to
clean it periodically so air flows through nicely. To clean
· Remove the filter according to the instructions in your
owner’s manual. This will involve removing a few screws. Set
the screws aside for replacing the filter later.
· Clean the filter with warm water and a mild detergent.
Dish detergent will work well for this.
· Lay the filter flat to dry, preferably in the sun.
· Reverse the steps you used to remove the filter to put it
back into place.
If your system uses disposable filters, you will need to buy
replacement filters at your local hardware store.
· Remove the old filter as per the instructions in the
· Take the filter to the hardware store so you have
something for reference to make sure you get the right one.
· Install the new filter.
Air Conditioner won’t Turn On
If the air conditioner isn’t running at all, there could be
a number of easy solutions to the problem. Things to check
· Check the Power – Make sure that the unit is plugged in.
If it is, the next thing to check is the fuse box or circuit
breaker. If there is a blown fuse, replace it. If the switch
on the breaker has been thrown, reset it.
· Turn it Back On – After replacing the fuse or resetting
the breaker, turn the condenser back on. If it still doesn’t
work, don’t despair. There is one more thing you can check.
· Check the Thermostat – It may be that the thermostat isn’t
set properly. Lower the temperature setting by about five
degrees and wait to see if the condenser starts to work.
If the unit still isn’t functioning, it may be that there is
a more serious problem going on. You will need to contact a
professional aircon technician to come in and inspect the
unit to diagnose and repair the problem.
Air isn’t Cool Enough
If your air conditioner is working, but you find that the
air inside your home isn’t as cool as it should be, there
are a few things that you can check. First, adjust the
thermostat and lower the temperature. This may be all that
you need to do. If you have already done this and it has
made no difference in the air temperature, you can:
· Check the condenser – If it is dirty, air flow may be
blocked. Make sure that there are no obstructions, such as
grass, plants, and weeds that could be blocking it. Also,
make sure that the condenser is actually running. It may be
that you need to reset the breaker or change a fuse.
· Check the condenser coil – It may be that the condenser
coil is blocked or damaged. If it is blocked, remove the
obstruction. If it is damaged, you may need to have it
replaced. Call an aircon technician to take a look at the
problem and let you know what needs to be done.
· Check the Compressor Cooling Fan – The problem could be
with this fan. If you notice that the fan is not working,
you can do your own diagnostics and repairs as per your
Another problem could be that the unit is low in
refrigerant. This is not a problem that you can deal with
yourself. Only a certified aircon technician can replace/top
Problems with the Sensor
If your air conditioner is constantly cycling or functioning
erratically, it may be that there is a problem with the
thermostat sensor. You will find the sensor right behind the
control panel. Check to make sure that it is near the coil,
but not actually touching the coil, as this can damage the
sensor and keep it from working properly. Adjusting the
position of the sensor is easy, and should only take a few
seconds. All you have to do is bend the wire so the sensor
is at a different angle. If the sensor is actually broken,
it will need to be replaced. It is often best to simply
replace the entire thermostat. This is another job that
should be done by a professional technician. Ask them to
install a programmable thermostat that is easy to use.
It is a good idea to familiarize yourself with all of the
parts of your air conditioning system, both inside and
outside. That way, when there is a problem, you will have a
pretty good idea what it is, and what needs to be done in
order to repair it. It is also wise to schedule two annual
inspections of the unit, once in the spring and again in the
fall. That way, if there are any problems you can take care
of them before they become more serious.
