Warning Signs Your Unit Needs Repair

If your home starts to feel like a sauna, it'll be clear that your air conditioner isn't doing its job. However, air conditioner malfunctions are usually less noticeable and develop into bigger problems gradually. To spare yourself a sudden, costly breakdown, here are some warning signs to watch out for:

  • Poor airflow

  • Insufficient or uneven cooling

  • Unusual noises (vibrating, buzzing, clanking)

  • Bad odours

  • Leaking

  • Thermostat malfunctions

If you notice any of these signs, make sure to call a technician before the issue becomes a full-blown ordeal.

Types of Air Conditioner Problems

If you’re having issues with your air conditioner, it probably comes down to one of the following problems:

  •  Dirty air filter
    A clogged air filter makes your air conditioner less effective by restricting airflow. This is the first thing you should check if your unit isn’t operating the way it should.  Replacing the air filter is easy and something you can do yourself.
  •  Refrigerant leak
    Low refrigerant levels prevent your unit from cooling the air and are usually caused by a leak. A trained technician can repair the leak and refill the refrigerant.
  •  Blocked registers
    The registers for a central heating and cooling system tend to get clogged with dust over time. It’s therefore a good idea to periodically clean the register and the reachable areas of your ductwork. Moreover, be sure that furniture isn’t blocking the registers and restricting the airflow.
  • Thermostat issues
    Occasionally thermostats need to be recalibrated by a professional, especially older dial thermostats.


  • Dirty ducts
    If your central heating and cooling system has weak airflow, the ducts may be clogged, constricted or leaking air. To prevent this, you should schedule professional duct cleanings on a regular basis.
  • Dirty evaporator coils
    An eighth of an inch of dust is enough to cause it to lose efficiency, freeze up, and release odour into your home or building.
  • Fan problems
    When your unit’s fan isn’t working properly, this results in poor airflow. Fan problems may be caused by a faulty motor, lack of lubrication, worn belts or a buildup of dirt and debris.
  • Frozen evaporator coils
    Your machine’s evaporator coils need warm air circulating around them to work properly. If they freeze, your unit won’t effectively cool the air.
  • Dirty condenser coils
    Condenser coils are a part of the outdoor unit that gets rid of heat the system has absorbed. They won’t work well when covered with dirt and grime, as this impedes heat transfer.


Tips for Preventing Air Conditioner Problems

To keep your unit in optimal condition and stave off the need for a repair, there are several things you can do:

  • Replace the air filter. Disposable filters should be replaced every one to three months, while a high-efficiency filter should be changed every six to 12 months. However, you’ll need to change the filter more frequently if you have a large household, have pets or have recently done renovations in or around your house.

  • Inspect your unit regularly. Visually inspect your air conditioner regularly to prevent small issues from turning into big ones. In particular, look for signs of damage or leaking, check the air temperature and airflow and be attentive to bad odours or unusual noises.

  • Keep the area around the outside unit clear. It’s important that you keep trees and shrubs around your outdoor unit trimmed to prevent the condenser and fan from getting clogged with leaves, dirt and other debris.

  • Stay on top of preventive maintenance. Whether you have central air conditioning or a window unit, getting your system serviced on a regular basis is essential to preventing sudden breakdowns and extending its lifespan.

Air Quality in Your Home

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) indoor air quality can be 2 to 5 times more toxic than outdoor air. When the weather outside is too hot or too cold for comfort and your furnace or air conditioner is running nonstop, fresh air can become hard to come by. It makes sense to keep the house sealed up to conserve energy, but do you really want to be trapped inside with so many pollutants? Make sure your indoor environment is safe and healthy by having a Residential Indoor Air Quality Test performed by a qualified technician.
