Central air units can have complications that most likely aren’t a cause for concern. Usually, these problems involve a quick fix but don’t include any underlying issues. Our Atlas Cooling & Heating team came up with eleven of the most common air conditioner problems that you might run into in 2021. If you think your AC is acting up and you’re not sure what could be wrong with it, check out our list of these common air conditioner issues.

1. AC Running All the Time

If your air conditioner is running all the time, this could be a potential problem. Although it is common to leave your AC on, you should give your unit time to rest and maintain your thermostat temperature. However, if your AC is continuing to run, it might need a quick cleaning or repair. Our team can quickly assist our customers with any maintenance, installations, or repairs and answer any questions about your HVAC system.

2. Refrigerant AC Leak

Older air conditioners usually use Freon to cool your home. Freon can theoretically last indefinitely; however, you will have to fix it if there is a leak. Our team can help repair or replace any AC leaks or issues.

3. AC Water Leak

Small water leaks on a hot or muggy day while your air conditioner is running is nothing to be worried about. However, if your air conditioner is leaving large pools of water, this usually indicates you need to change your filter or get it cleaned. Our Atlas Cooling & Heating team can perform quick maintenance and repairs on your HVAC system and assist our customers with all of their home needs.

4. Loud Noises Coming From AC

Air conditioners are already pretty loud machines. However, if you begin to notice new grinding or screeching noises, then there could be a more severe issue at hand. A problem like this could mean that there is blocked airflow to your AC unit. Our staff can assist you with any HVAC needs or repairs.

5. AC Smells Bad

Many different smells can be circulated through your HVAC system and not actually from the AC unit itself. However, if you smell burning, coolant, or exhaust fumes coming from your air conditioner, you will need to get it repaired. Our Atlas Cooling & Heating team can restore or replace your broken HVAC units.

6. AC Isn’t Cooling

If your air conditioner isn’t blowing cold air, ensure it is set on the cool setting. If you’ve made sure that the settings are correct and nothing is blocking the air vent of your system, you might need to get the filter changed or your air conditioner fixed. Our Atlas Cooling & Heating team can provide you with multiple HVAC or home services.

7. AC Is Blowing Warm Air

It can be a frustrating issue when your air conditioner is only blowing out warm air. First, make sure that all of the settings are correct. If the problem persists, call one of our Atlas Cooling & Heating team members and ask for one of our repair or maintenance services.

8. AC Freezing Up

Your air conditioner freezing usually isn’t a huge cause for concern. However, if you neglect to clean it regularly, this can cause issues and even break your air conditioner. Make sure to keep the temperature higher if you leave or go to bed. Otherwise, contact one of our technicians to help you out with any of your HVAC needs.

9. AC Is the Wrong Size

If your air conditioner is the wrong size for your home, it won’t fully cool your house. Our Atlas Cooling & Heating team can replace your air conditioners so that they fit correctly and keep your house at a comfortable temperature at all times.

10. AC Keeps Tripping Circuit Breaker

Call us to change and clean your filter and your outside condenser unit if this is happening. If there is a leak or other failed component in the air conditioner, our team can quickly repair and replace your faulty HVAC units.

11. AC Isn’t Getting Proper Maintenance

If you haven’t gotten maintenance performed on your air conditioner recently, it might be a good idea to make an appointment for our maintenance service. Our Atlas Cooling & Heating team provides regular maintenance and repair services on all of your HVAC and home systems.
