At AirZone HVAC Services, we want to make sure that you are getting fair value for your dollar.
If there is something that you can fix easily yourself (and prefer to do it), we would rather give you some helpful information to aid you in your repair.
Is your Air Conditioner not working correctly? Follow the steps below to troubleshoot the issue.
And if you need additional assistance, we are always here to come out and do a service call. We offer a full line of air conditioner services including routine maintenance.
Warm air coming out of the vents – This is a pretty obvious one but if your thermostat is set correctly and the air conditioner is not blowing cold it indicates a problem with the cooling system.
Turning on and off constantly – Is your cooling equipment having frequent cycles? It should turn on and off fairly routinely and if it starts to deviate from this behavior then it can indicate an issue.
Bad smell – Another common indicator of an air conditioner not working properly is if a smell is coming from the equipment. This is typically an issue with mildew and can certainly indicate a service visit is in order. UV lighting equipment is a popular choice to help with odours.
Strange noises coming from the HVAC system – There are many different types of noise that can indicate an improper air conditioner operation. These noises can include things such as buzzing, whistling, and other loud noises.
The first thing you should always check when having issues with your air conditioner is whether it is turning automatically or not. You can find this out quickly by ensuring that your thermostat is set to “cool”. Next, make sure that the temperature on the thermostat is set lower than the temperature in the home.
Have a look at your electrical connections – Is there a blown fuse? A tripped circuit? Is the power switch set to ON for your furnace and condenser?
Next let’s have a look at the blower unit. Sometimes an air conditioner gets clogged up, and does not put out enough air flow. To check this, go outside to your air conditioner housing. Check for damage to any blades or debris in the blower. Think about where your ducts might be pinched inside your home to prevent the flow of cool air.
