Watch for These Early Season Air Conditioning Problems!
March 21, 2016

Spring has now officially arrived, and that means we can soon anticipate rising temperatures as we start the upward climb toward summer. There will still be some cool days ahead, but you can expect to have your air conditioning system operating on a regular basis fairly soon. Make sure that you schedule regular maintenance for it so that technicians can catch any potential issues that may require repairs. This is the best way to prep an AC for the rigors of the summer.

As your air conditioner begins taking on its workload for the season, pay close attention to any potential malfunctions (even maintenance can’t catch everything!) that will alert you that it’s time to call for repairs. The sooner you have repairs done, the less chance of the air conditioner breaking down or the repairs becoming more expensive. Below are some common warnings of AC problems:

  • Hissing sounds: This noise often indicates that refrigerant is leaking from the copper refrigerant lines. This is a common occurrence in ACs that are more than 4 or 5 years old. Unless repaired, this can result in catastrophic damage to the compressor.
  • Ice on the evaporator coil: It’s easy to ignore the presence of ice on an AC because it ­seems like it’s something normal. But it isn’t! When ice forms across the indoor evaporator coil, it could mean a loss of refrigerant, dirt on the coils, air flow issues, and more.
  • Hard starting: This is when the AC struggles as the compressor comes on, making strange noises and often cycling off early. This will damage many parts in the system and needs to be remedied as soon as possible.
  • Hots spots in rooms: If one or more of the rooms in the house feels hotter than they should be when the AC is running, it often indicates the air conditioner is beginning to lose its cooling power.
