Handling AC Repair Problems before Hiring Professionals

Keeping your central air conditioner working properly can be a frustrating task if you don’t know what is wrong. There are some basic troubleshooting items you can try before you contact professionals specializing in AC repair in Austin. An air conditioner system needs to work effectively to fight off the high temperatures that Texans often face. Here are some troubleshooting elements to try before you consult with a professional. 

Frozen Coils

When it gets into the triple-digit temperatures, an air conditioner system will be working constantly. If you are keeping your home at a lower setting, it can easily place too much strain on your air conditioner. Increase your thermostat so you don’t end up causing the air conditioner to work too hard, causing frozen coils. When a system has frozen coils, it will prevent the air conditioner from circulating. This can end up causing clogging in the drainage system and overall poor functioning of your air conditioner. Allow the coils to thaw and clean up your system to make sure it is draining properly. An air conditioner needs down time each day to reset itself and prevent ice buildups.

Smell

Do you notice a problem with an odor when your air conditioner turns on? A foul smell can indicate a few different issues that you need to address. Some systems will have stagnant water sitting in the air conditioner, which leads to mold, mildew, and fungi. Check on the air conditioner filter to see if it is dirty. Change the filter at least once a month to prevent a smell from occurring. It is also smart to clean out the air returns in the home, as they can easily accumulate a lot of dust. Consider having the air ducts cleaned out if you do see dust spraying out of the air vents.

Noise


When the air conditioner turns on, you should hear a simple buzzing noise. Anything that is noticeably loud inside the home can indicate a problem with the air conditioner. A loud wailing noise indicates the fanbelt needs to be changed or adjusted. Check the system for twigs and other debris that can get in the way of the fan blades since it can cause noise, and can destroy your system. If you still hear noise, contact a company that provides AC repair in Austin for assistance.

  4. I am glad I married a handy man. When we install and uninstall our AC, it was just my husband who did it so we saved a lot by not seeking the pros.

  5. We don't have AC in our home, so we have no worries about repairing, installing or uninstalling it. But if we have one, am sure to call someone's help if such problems arise, because nobody in the house is a handyman, we're all girls in the house except for the little man Destine :)

  21. I have no idea about these things either. We have a central heater at our old house and we just asked the expert or the pro to fix it because it broke a year ago. Now we have a good one that works really well. We will surely need it when we go back to our old house for the Christmas this December. Thanks for sharing the article.
