Common Air Conditioning Problems If you notice that your air conditioner isn’t cooling properly, is running constantly or just plain isn’t turning on, you may be experiencing one of the following problems:

Refrigerant is an essential part of your AC system. It absorbs heat from the outside and provides cool air after it runs through the compressor and evaporator. If your air conditioner is blowing warm air or no longer cooling properly, you may leak and should call for repair right away before serious damage is done.

Normal wear and tear on your system can cause your compressor and fan controls to wear out and disrupt the connection that starts your unit. Power surges are another source of electrical failure. An experienced AC technician should always be called to diagnose and repair any electrical issues.

The air conditioning sensor measures the temperature in the room and regulates it based on the setting on the control panel or thermostat. If you notice that your air conditioner is constantly cycling, acting erratically, or over-cooling, a damaged sensor is likely the problem.

High humidity, such as we often experience in North Florida, can cause mold, algae, or other debris to clog the condensate drain. If you notice standing water by your AC unit, a moldy smell in your house, or that your AC is turning off before it gets to temperature, you may have a drainage problem.

The compressor is a key component of your air conditioning system. Maintaining the proper refrigerant levels is essential to keeping it performing correctly. Too little or too much can lead to failure.

It’s very important to have your HVAC system maintained regularly to keep it functioning effectively and efficiently.
