Top 3 Common Problems With Your AC

Your air conditioning system is one of the most complex appliances in your home. With so many different components all working together, your system is bound to run into issues from time to time. Fortunately, the most common AC problems are often relatively simple to fix. Learn the top three most common air conditioning problems and how you can assess the issue here.

1. Your Air Conditioner Isn’t Running

There is nothing worse than coming home on a sweltering summer day only to find that your air conditioner won’t turn on. There are lots of things that could cause your AC to stop running, so it’s best to troubleshoot the easiest fixes first. For starters, double check that your thermostat has working batteries and hasn’t accidentally been switched to ‘off’ mode. If this doesn’t remedy the problem, there could be an issue with the air handler, furnace, or the electrical components that connect the two. Since electrical issues can be dangerous, it’s a good idea to call a professional for this one.

2. Your Air Conditioner Is Running, but Not Releasing Cold Air

So your air conditioner is running… but it’s not releasing cold air, what gives? Well, it could be a few things. This common problem is likely an electrical issue between the thermostat and the condenser unit. If there is a disconnect between the two, it could cause your AC to run but not produce chilled air. If you’re handy with electrical work, you may be able to take matters into your own hand, however novices should seek professional help.

3. Your Air Conditioner Shuts on and off Repeatedly

Air conditioners go through cycles in order to maintain a specific temperature in your home. Sometimes your AC can go a little haywire and go through fast and frequent cycling. When this occurs and your air conditioning system repeatedly shuts on and off, it’s called short cycling. Short cycling can increase your energy bills, put unnecessary wear-and-tear on your system and makes it harder for your home to reach a desired temperature. If your AC is short cycling, it’s likely that the system is improperly sized for your home.
