You need to know what can go wrong with your air conditioning system to be able to fix it properly or to seek expert ac repair help. The air conditioning equipment and systems installed these days are not only dependable, but also reliable. However, problems do crop up sometimes. An air conditioner may not turn on, cooling capacity may come down, fail to achieve set temperatures and supply only less air. Sometimes there may be an unusual sound when the air conditioner is switched on or when it is in operation. You may be able to do some of the repairs if you are technically savvy, but the major problems must be left to be handled by professionally trained technicians.

Before discussing as to how you can identify ac repair problems, you need to know what issues can be caused by an air conditioner that is not working well.

Air conditioners are used to provide comfort to you by cooling and dehumidifying the air inside your room. If the air conditioner is not working properly, the humidity may go up and make you feel warmer. You may tend to sweat a lot if the humidity remains high. A combination of ailments known as Sick Building syndrome can occur and is related to the poor indoor air quality because of faulty air conditioning systems in the workplace or residence. Faulty air conditioners may facilitate mold growth, collection of dust, etc., leading to allergic reactions.

Here are some of the common air conditioner problems and tips on how you can deal with them:

  • Not Turning On

If your air conditioning unit is not turning on at all, it means that you will have to check the breaker. If the breaker has tripped, you can reset it and start the unit. Wait for two minutes to see if it is tripping again. Resetting the breaker usually fixes the problem. If the problem is not resolved, check for loose connections. If the air conditioner still does not turn on or the breaker trips as soon as you start again, you may have to seek professional help.

  • Not Cooling Enough

If you feel that the air conditioner is not cooling enough, you can check the thermostat setting and see if it is set too high. If it is set too high, lower it by 5° and see if there is any difference. You can also check and clean the air filter, if required. If there is no change, check if the evaporator is dirty. Clean the evaporator.

  • Does Not Cool At All

The air conditioner may not cool because of various reasons. These are:

The thermostat may be set very high. Condenser may be dirty or blocked. Evaporator may be dirty. Compressor may be faulty.There may not be sufficient refrigerant in the system.

You can lower the thermostat setting by 5° and see whether the cooling is improved. You can also clean the condenser and evaporator and see for improvement in performance of the air conditioning unit. However, for checking the compressor and the refrigerant in the system, you may have to call in the professionals.
