If you’ve come across sudden air conditioner issues on a very hot day, you’re not alone. This is the time when air conditioning systems run into the most trouble, as it’s also when they’re taking on the most work. Want to know how your problem compares with the calls we typically get? Don’t worry; we’ve heard it all! Here are a few of the most common calls we get, but give us a call no matter how big or how small your issue.
My AC won’t turn on. Is it the thermostat?
Oftentimes, no. While it’s possible the thermostat is at fault, you might just be wasting your time continuing to attempt to fix the thermostat or its settings if your air conditioner has shut off. If you’ve already tried the different thermostat settings and replacing the batteries, you might check the circuit breaker. But if the thermostat and electricity appear to be working, it’s likely a larger problem within the system you’ll need a technician to fix.
Is it normal for my air conditioner to take so long?
If your air conditioner is taking a long time to cool your home, or if you have to keep turning your thermostat down to feel any level of comfort, it’s not something you should have to deal with. This indicates an inefficient system with some level of wear and tear preventing it from working properly. If the problem is noticeable and somewhat severe, you’ll need to call for AC repairs. It could be anything from a dirty coil to a broken motor. Otherwise, a standard tune-up may help your system to run more smoothly.
Why is water leaking from my unit?
If water leaks from your air conditioner, it’s possible that there’s an easy fix. You might need to pull debris from the condensate drain, or you could need to reposition the condensate pan drip tray. Typically, we recommend calling a technician, even if this task seems relatively simple.
