Did you know that ice on your AC coils can be caused by a number of different problems? If your AC has low refrigerant levels or dirty filters blocking air flow, ice can build up on your unit which prevents it from cooling your home. If you notice coil icing on your air conditioner, call an HVAC technician come out and to take a look. They will not only be able to get rid of the ice but also fix the underlying problem.
AC Repair Warning Signs
If you don’t know what you’re looking for, signs that your air conditioner needs repair can go unnoticed for weeks or even months at a time. However, the longer you allow a problem to persist, the worse the eventual repair cost will be. So, it’s important to always stay vigilant and watch your system for potential problems.
The most common sign of a problem in an air conditioning unit is that it simply stops providing even cooling to your entire home. It might be that the rooms furthest from the central unit don’t receive enough cooling or that the entire home suddenly doesn’t feel as comfortable as it once did. In either case, loss of cooling capacity is a sure sign that something is wrong. Look for symptoms of uneven cooling as well. If one room gets plenty of cool air but the one next door doesn’t, it may be due to a problem in your ductwork or air handler.
While a suddenly warmer home is a sure symptom of a problem, much of the time, you won’t even get that much of a warning. When many air conditioners experience a problem, they simply work harder to compensate. Dirty coils, bent fins, or a clogged filter don’t stop the air conditioner from working, they merely require that it use more energy to produce the same cooling it once did.
At first, you may think this is fine. But take into consideration the fact that when this happens, you not only pay more in the short term for the energy needed to increase your cooling capacity, but the lifespan of your air conditioner is severely diminished with the additional load that is placed on the unit.
