Having your air conditioner malfunction on you in the middle of a hot summer day is no fun at all. Before you call for air conditioning repairs, though, you should take a few preliminary steps to clarify what’s wrong. These steps will help you determine if you need professional repairs, as well as describe what’s wrong to the HVAC technician if you do. Read on for things to check before calling for AC repair.
You would be pretty surprised if you knew how many air conditioner “problems” ended up being thermostat related. Before you call for air conditioning repair, check your thermostat to make sure that everything is set properly. If everything is set properly, and the problem still persists, then you may actually have a problem with your air conditioner. You should also check to make sure that the display is accurate. It’s possible that the thermostat itself is malfunctioning, and your air conditioner is perfectly fine.
If you think your air conditioner is malfunctioning, listen for any strange noises that may be coming from it. These tend to be warning signs of a problem with your system. Hissing and bubbling means that there’s probably a leak in the refrigerant line. Grinding sounds indicate that your air handler is malfunctioning. Short cycling, where your air conditioner turns itself on and off every couple of minutes, could have many different causes, but is also an indication that you need to have the system looked at immediately. These noises will help identify what’s actually wrong with your system, so make sure you take note of them.
