Common Air Conditioner Problems

One of the most common problems cooling your home occurs when doors and windows are left open. You might be surprised at how often just being vigilant about closing doors and windows can significantly improve the cooling process for your home.

Leaky ducts or improper air flow are another very common culprit for why your AC is not cooling properly. Inconsistent temperatures often are an indicator that this is the problem. If there is a leak somewhere in the line then the cool air that is moving from your unit through your home is not making it all the way to where it needs to go.

Check your filters and coils. A dirty filter or coil will restrict your air flow and keep your machine from running at peak efficiency.

A clogged condensate drain on your unit can cause loss of efficiency and cooling. It is best to get a certified HVAC technician to check this for you, it is bit more technical and it is better to be safe than sorry. If you break something it could cause a much more expensive repair later on.
