Why Your Air Conditioner Is Broken

Think your AC is playing tricks on you? Maybe, maybe not!

Your air conditioner is one of the most complex systems in your home and requires careful attention and care. There are many reasons your AC could be broken. Here are a few of the most common culprits:

Refrigerant is leaking
Reason #1: your AC could be low on refrigerant or it leaks. If it’s leaking, adding refrigerant won’t help. Instead, call a professionally trained HVAC technician to fix the leak by testing and repairing the situation.

Sensor needs repair
Your room’s air conditioner has a thermostat sensor located behind the control panel. This tool measures the air temperature that comes into the evaporative coil. However, if the sensor is knocked out of place, your AC could cycle could cycle constantly. Your sensor needs to be adjusted carefully, so call an HVAC professional to help.

AC coils are dirty
Your air conditioner requires adequate maintenance. If your filters become dirty and lack proper maintenance, the efficiency of your air conditioner can suffer or fail altogether.

Electric control is failing
Does your AC on and off frequently? If so, it might be too big for your home. This can cause the compressor and fan controls to wear out, and because corrosion of wire is a common problem for many systems, the electrical connections should be checked on often.
