Common Air Conditioner Emergencies
With constant exposure to the elements, it is common for air conditioning units to break down and stop working optimally. Here are some of the most common air conditioner failures:
Air conditioner not cooling optimally
Is your air conditioner not cooling adequately enough? Several factors affect the performance of your air conditioning unit. It could be due to clogging of the condenser coils or due to overheating of the compressor. It is also possible that there is a problem with the filter or one of the supply vents. An easy fix to these problems is to clean the coils, the filter and the vents. If that does not solve the problem, then you might have a bigger problem at hand.
Got a weird high pitched sound coming from your air conditioning unit?
If you are experiencing a high-pitched screeching or squealing sound from your air conditioner, there could be an issue with the belt connecting the motor to the blower. If you have an old air conditioner, this is likely the cause of the screeching sound.
Got a leaking duct?
A leaking duct is often caused because of the condensation occurring in one of your AC ducts. Improperly sealed ducts or lack of insulation in the ducts can cause condensation. Condensation could also build up around the air vent because of the temperature difference between the air inside and outside the vent causing the accumulation of water droplets. If the drip pan in your air conditioner is overflowing, there is a great possibility that you are dealing with a clogged drain line.
A broken thermostat
Many people do not realize that damaged thermostats are a major cause of the majority of HVAC system malfunctions. However, this issue may easily be addressed and doesn’t need expensive renovations to do so. Since thermostat problems aren’t as evident, a large number of people aren’t sure that it’s what’s causing their HVAC systems to fail. A professional technician can simply discover and solve this problem.
In addition to the cables that link the unit to its electrical supply, your HVAC system has a variety of other connections. Overheating or electrical problems might cause wires to the capacitors and compressor to catch fire. If you can smell burnt wires or if the interior of the system is charred, you know that the wires have been burned.

Troubleshooting Air Conditioner Problems
When your air conditioning system isn't working properly, the first thing you should do is troubleshooting. Here is how you can do that:
Check the thermostat settings: There must be a few degrees of difference between your home's present temperatures and your thermostat's setting. Make sure that the hold or vacation mode hasn't been unintentionally activated to stop your air conditioner from working.
Check your power: Make sure both your thermostat and your air conditioning unit are plugged in and the thermostat has fresh batteries. It is important to check your home's panelboard to make sure that all of the fuses or circuits that provide electricity to your cooling system are in working order.
Make sure your air filter is working properly: Airflow may be restricted by a blocked air filter, keeping cool air from entering your house. If your filter is clogged, either buy a new one or follow the operating manual for cleaning your reusable filter.
