Most Common AC Problems

The average lifespan of an air conditioner is about 10 years. In that time, small, simple repairs are common. If you notice that your AC system is acting strangely, it’s best to call our reliable team immediately. We can promptly determine the source of the problem and solve it with effectiveness and a fast turnaround through effective repairs or with a replacement unit.

Some of the most common repairs we see include:

  • Issues caused by dirty or clogged air filters- The air filters in your AC system ensure that clean, fresh air makes it to the unit. If the filters are clogged or dirty, it can put a strain on other components and cause your system to run less efficiently.
  • Evaporator coil issues- As the main part of your AC that cools and condenses the air, evaporator coils can easily become dirty, causing it to freeze and stop working. This can cause other components of your AC to run incorrectly and can cause serious damage to the system.
  • Mechanical or electrical problems- Components such as the blower motor, fan belt or other mechanical issues can occur and cause your AC to stop working.
  • Thermostat problems- If your AC will not turn on or it turns on and off repeatedly, it may be a thermostat issue.

AC Repair or Replacement?

While we will always be in to repair your AC when you're in a pinch, it doesn't mean AC repair is always the financially prudent maneuver. Watch out for the following 4 signs that you should consider replacing your unit instead of AC Repair.

1. Old age - Most AC units last from 12-15 years depending on use, environment, and maintenance levels. If your AC is approaching the end of its life, throwing more money at AC repair might be a waste if you're going to get a new unit soon anyway.

2. Utility bills on the rise - One thing dying ACs have in common is that they need more electricity to achieve the desired temperature. If after our AC repair pros service your unit, you're still getting an inefficient unit, then consider replacing the unit outright.

3. Repair after repair - At some point, replacing your AC is cheaper than the umpteenth AC repair call. If your unit needs multiple repairs every season, you're better off with a new unit.

4. Your unit uses R22 Freon - Because of the 2020 Freon Ban, these units are going to become increasingly expensive to operate, don't throw money into repairing these units as you'll need to get a new one soon.

Why Does My Air Conditioner Turn On and Off Repeatedly?

If you have noticed that your AC keeps turning on and off, this is a signal that your unit needs service. This problem is called “short cycling” and it shouldn’t be ignored.

Short cycling can be caused by the following:

  • Refrigerant problems. If the level of refrigerant in your AC unit is low, this could cause compressor pressure levels to become unstable. This will make the AC turn on and off without producing cold air. If you suspect you may have a refrigerant leak, call for repairs immediately as this could cause serious damage to the unit.
  • Poor thermostat location. Short cycling can result if the thermostat is located in an impractical spot, such as near a warm window or supply vent. The thermostat won’t be able to tell the actual temperature inside your home and will cause the AC to turn on more frequently when it incorrectly senses it is too warm inside.
  • Your air filter needs to be replaced. When was the last time you replaced your air filter? If you can’t remember, chances are it’s pretty dirty, and when this happens, it restricts air flow and can cause the evaporator coil to freeze. Make sure you replace your air filter at least monthly.
  • Your AC unit is too large for your home. The larger the unit, the faster it will cool your home, which is why it turns on and off frequently. While this may seem like a good thing, it can actually shorten the lifespan of the unit, increase the chance of a breakdown, and cost you more on your energy bill.

Repair Your AC By Yourself or Hire a Professional?

Many home jobs can be improvised or done by imploring the “do-it-yourself” method. Fixing an air conditioner, however, is not one of them. An experienced Mobile AC repair professional from our team knows exactly what to look for when repairing your AC system. During the repair, we ensure that other components were not impacted by the issue. Before leaving, we also ensure all parts are working properly so that another emergency repair doesn’t happen again.

Our Mobile air conditioning repair technicians also recommend investing in regular maintenance to ensure your system is working as efficiently as possible all year long. By checking your ducts, thermostat, air handler, evaporator coil and more, we can make sure your AC keeps you covered all summer.
