Common Problems with Air Conditioning Systems

These are some of the most regular troubles with AC systems. You might be able to handle some of these things on your own. However, you should call us if your air conditioner is leaking refrigerant or making strange noises.

  • Air conditioner won’t turn on. Make sure the thermostat is accurately set before examining the electrical panel for a tripped breaker.
  • Air isn’t cold. Verify thermostat settings are on the proper temperature and that your thermostat has power. Then replace the air filter, if you haven’t done this in the past few months. A fresh air filter can increase efficiency and indoor air quality. Make sure the outdoor unit isn’t obstructed by debris and that it isn’t leaking refrigerant. If you find a refrigerant leak, contact us at 217-689-2469 for repair. If your air conditioner was installed before 2011, it possibly relies on a hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) refrigerant called Freon®, or R-22. This refrigerant is no longer being made as a result of its harmful effects on the ozone layer. As only limited, recycled quantities are available, solving a R-22 refrigerant leak can be pricey. We usually suggest air conditioning installation in this instance. 
  • Uneven cooling. Fluctuating temperatures or humidity that’s out of balance are often caused by leaky ducts, not enough insulation or blocked registers. If none of those things are creating the problem, consider adding blackout curtains on south-facing windows. You can also install a zoning system to regulate temperatures in distinct rooms. As an alternate possibility, a mini-split heat pump with variable refrigerant flow can resolve heating and cooling troubles in spaces that feel uncomfortable. 
  • Water dripping from unit. Check the condensate line for clogs. This is the PVC pipe going out of the air conditioner. Leaking refrigerant can also cause ice to collect on the coils and drip water.
  • Air conditioner is making strange noises. Screeching, clanging, banging or clicking sounds signal potentially serious problems. If you’re experiencing odd air conditioner noises, switch it off and call Chief/Bauer Service Experts at 217-689-2469.
