We’ve listed some of the most common problems with air conditioners in Denver and some solutions that you can try yourself before you call us.
1. Air Conditioning Thermostat: It’s the heart of all air conditioning systems and one of the most common reasons for air conditioning problems. A programmable thermostat will save you money on your energy bills every month and will extend the life of your air conditioning system because you can select only the areas of your home you want to cool. You can stop cooling rooms for now on that you’re not using.
2. Air conditioner blowing warm air: Your air conditioners compressor may be dirty. The compressor is outside your home, so carefully check to see if it’s clogged with debris or leaves. You can use a soft brush to clean the fins. Check the two pipes that go to the compressor; one should be cold and the other warm. If they’re clean you could have a refrigerant leak and you’ll need to call an Air conditioning service to re-charge the unit and find the leak.
3. Air conditioner won’t come on: Once again check the thermostat and then check the power to make sure the circuit breaker is not tripped. There is also a metal box on the wall outside; make sure this is not in the off position.
4. Weak air flow from ducts: This could be a dirty A/C filter that’s causing the air conditioners compressor to freeze up, or a refrigerant leak, so you need to check the level of the refrigerant in the A/C system. This is when it’s time to call us and let us check this for you.
5. Air conditioner filter: We recommend you change your air conditioning filter once a month. The A/C filter is located in the air handler inside your home and there will be instructions on the air conditioner for changing the filter; look on the side of the old A/C filter when you remove it and make sure to note the thickness of the filter as well as the length and width if you need to buy new filters.
6. Air conditioner making noise: There are many reasons for noisy air conditioners and the motor in the air handler on your air conditioner is one of the common causes as well as A/C fan blades that are bent; old ductwork in your home can become noisy because it can become soft over time and move around. Call us and we’ll check it out for you.
7. Water on floor around Air conditioner: Air conditioners create water or condensation in the process of cooling your house and there are pans under the air conditioning unit and they can rust and develop leaks, or the air conditioning PVC pipes can develop leaks at the joints. If you find ice in the pan under your air conditioner this is another sign that the filter is dirty or you’re low on refrigerant. In all cases you should call us and let us confirm this for you.
8. Noise from air ducts: Air conditioning ducts contain metal so they can make noise and if you’re hearing popping sounds this is thermal expansion in the metal ducts and the most common sound is air escaping from leaks in ducts. If you can locate these you can fix them with duct tape but all the above mentioned repairs are hot dirty work especially during the summer so you may want to give us a call.
9. Mold in Air conditioning system: We’re seeing a lot of mold right now on fan blades and on the inside of the air handler and this will move through your home in the air conditioning ducts so we’ll carefully check for mold when we’re inspecting your air conditioning system.
