Signs You Need To Fix Your Air Conditioner

So, when should you book an appointment with our experts at Sun City Air Conditioning? You should do so as soon as you notice any of the signs of a malfunctioning air conditioner. Here are some of the most common air conditioning problems.

Warm Air Coming Out Of The Vents

If your home is hot, your system should be able to pick this up and start pumping cooler air into your home in order to make it comfortable. If this does not happen, and your air conditioner is blowing hot air, then it means that there is a problem with your system’s compressor. There might be a problem with the level of refrigerant in your system. It might also be a simple case of a malfunctioning thermostat. Whichever the case, getting your system looked at as early as possible is advisable.

Strange Sounds

An immediate examination of the system is usually necessary in order to diagnose the problem and administer the right fix. This is because while some of these strange sounds or loud buzzing noises are caused by things as basic as an object getting stuck in the blower, others are a clear indication of serious problems that if not dealt with immediately, could end up worsening and cause extensive damage to your system.

No Air Flowing From Your Vents

Air conditioning systems rely on efficient air circulation in order to regulate the temperature in your home. It pumps cool air through the vents and into your home. At the same time, it also takes in warm air and cools it. This cycle usually continues right until your air con has reached its desired temperature.

Therefore, if you notice that no air is coming through the vents, or that the rate of airflow is very weak, you should consider contacting Brisbane air conditioning repair experts to check out your system. This is because this is a common symptom of clogged duct work, a malfunctioning fan, or a problematic compressor.

Unusual Odor

Why does my air conditioner smell bad? This is a common problem we encounter - and if as soon as you turn on your air conditioning system you notice unusual odors flooding your home, then there is a problem with your system. If it is a burning smell, then you likely have a problem with the electrical system. However, if it is a musty smell, you are likely dealing with biological growths.

These odors are bound to make your home inhospitable. And since they are also a sign of an underlying issue, fixing the source of the problem is imperative if you want your system to keep performing at an optimum level.

Moisture Around Your Unit

Why is my air conditioner leaking? If you start noticing pools of water around your AC unit, then you are likely dealing with a condensate drainage problem. There might be a blockage in the condensate’s drain line. It might also be a case of the pan being undersized or getting filled up by dirt and debris to a point where it cannot handle the condensate.

However, if your air conditioner is sweating, the leaks around the unit are not always a result of the condensate. There are times when the refrigerant leaks, and when this happens, it is usually a sign that your unit needs the immediate attention of air conditioning repair professionals.

Sudden Spikes In Utility Bills

When your energy bill shoots up suddenly for no reason at all, then you are likely dealing with a system that has become inefficient. This may be due to torn ductwork, a problematic thermostat, or a unit that simply needs to be replaced. In such a case, getting your system looked up could be enough to save you from having to shoulder increasingly high energy costs.

Air Conditioner Repairs That We Can Help To Solve 

While it is possible to do routine maintenance tasks like cleaning air filters and getting rid of any debris in the vents, there are times when you just don’t have the time to do these tasks on a regular basis.

Split System Air Conditioning repairs In Brisbane

Split system air conditioners are a favorite among homeowners because of their affordability. The fact that they are easier to install and maintain, is also a benefit that adds to their attractiveness.

However, like any other air conditioning system, they can start acting up. These systems can sometimes have problems with ice accumulating in their cooling coils, odor problems, starting up problems, and loud noises during start-up or during operation. Cases of compressors that frequently switch off and refrigerant leaks are also common with these systems.

Air Conditioner Repair FAQs

Why is my air conditioner dripping water?

This can be due to any of the following:

 - Poor maintenance or installation
 - Clogged drain line
 - Blocked or dirty filter
 - Air leak
 - Broken pump
 - Clogged condensation line

Check out our article on what to do if your air conditioner is leaking water for more information.

How can I prevent my air conditioner from breaking?

Have your air conditioner serviced at least once a year – depending on the system and usage.

Contact our air conditioner servicing team for more information.

Is my air conditioner beyond repair?

An expert air conditioning technician will need to assess the damage before deciding this. However, if this is the case, and you need a new air conditioner installed, we do also offer air conditioning installation services.

Should I replace or repair my air conditioner?

When you’re deciding whether to replace or repair your air conditioner you need to take into account a few things. To help you decide what’s better for you, consider the following factors.

1. The AC units age
2. Whether it’s had many repairs previously
3. The advice of a trained service technician 

A technician can provide a quote for both a repair or replacement so that you can decide which is best for you.

How much does it cost to fix an air conditioner?

It’s hard to pin point the price it costs to fix an air conditioner, as some fixes are more complex than others, and the price of parts must be taken into consideration. However, you can expect to be charged somewhere between $80 - $110 per hour + GST for domestic air conditioning and $80 - $140 per hour + GST for commercial units. The price of parts is added on top of this figure

Is faulty air conditioning dangerous?

While some air conditioning problems are simply an inconvenience, other air conditioner faults can be very dangerous. If a unit leaks toxic gasses, carbon monoxide, it can even be potentially life threatening. So, if your air conditioner is showing signs that something isn’t right, it’s best to get it checked out by a professional.

How long do AC units typically last?

The life span of your AC unit will be affected by the following factors:
1. How long you use it for per day
2. How often you have the system serviced
3. The quality of the air conditioner
4. The elements your outdoor unit is exposed to (e.g. salt, sun, snow, hail)
5. The temperature you set your unit to (the lower the temperature is, the harder your air conditioner works.

However, you can generally expect a home air conditioner to last about 10-15 years if it's well maintained.

How often should you replace your air conditioner?

As mentioned above, most home air conditioners can last around 10-15 years. However, if you’re experiencing two or more of the below four points, it may be a sign that your air conditioner will need replacing soon.
1. Your air conditioner is over ten years old
2. Your air conditioner is frequently breaking down
3. Your power bills are much higher than they used to be
4. Your unit uses R-22 Freon (this is being phased out due to the negative effects it has on the environment) 

Should I turn off the AC if it’s not cooling?

Yes, there are a number of reasons as to why your AC system may not be cooling. Regardless of the specific problem, if your unit isn’t working effectively it’s likely to be working harder than normal in an attempt to cool down a room. The extra energy exerted by the unit will not only cost you more in energy bills, but it may also put stress on the system which could cause an expensive outage.

Is it worth replacing the compressor on the AC unit?

The compressor moves the refrigerant between the evaporator and the condenser coils, ensuring that the refrigerant converts into gas or liquid when necessary. However, a dead compressor is one of the most expensive problems you can have with an air con unit.  
To decide whether it’s better to replace the compressor, or just replace the entire AC system comes down to the age and health of your air conditioning system. A technician can provide a quote for both scenarios so that you can decide which is best for you.

What are the signs of a bad AC condenser?

A condenser is the outdoor portion of an air conditioner that releases heat from the unit. If you experience any of the following signs, it’s likely a sign that there’s something wrong with your AC condenser. 
1. Loud, and unusual noises emanating from the unit.
2. A big reduction in the unit’s cooling capability.
3. The air conditioner is “sweating” or creating a considerable amount of condensation

Can a blown fuse cause AC not to work?

Yes, a blown fuse will stop an air conditioner from working. However, a fuse will usually blow as a safety precaution. Fuses are designed to blow when there is a problem in the system, to protect your AC unit from further damage. It’s usually a sign that there is another problem within the unit.
