Air Conditioning Repair FAQs

How do I troubleshoot my AC in my house?

There are a few things you can do to troubleshoot your AC at home. First, check the filter to see if it needs to be replaced. If the filter is dirty, it can restrict air flow and cause the AC to work harder than it needs to. Second, check the thermostat setting to make sure it's set to "cool" and that the temperature is set lower than the current room temperature. Third, check the breaker to see if it has tripped. If so, reset it and see if that fixes the problem. If you do all these things and still can’t figure out what’s wrong with your AC, have a professional HVAC technician come check it out.

What causes my outside AC unit to stop working?

The most common reason for your outside AC unit to stop working is an interruption in power. This may be caused by a tripped circuit breaker or by the on/off switch (typically located in a small box by the outdoor unit) getting flipped. Other issues that might cause problems for your outdoor AC unit include frozen coils, electrical issues and fan problems. If your exterior AC unit is not working, have an HVAC professional examine it as soon as possible.

What to do if my home AC system is not cooling?

If your home AC system is not cooling properly, the first thing you should do is check the thermostat. You’d be surprised how often AC problems are just a thermostat that’s been accidentally set to the wrong temperature or turned off! If everything looks right, check your air filters next. A clogged and dirty filter will restrict airflow to your AC, which can cause it to shut off. If your filters are clean and your thremostat os working properly, your next step should be to call an HVAC professional to run a diagnostic and recommend appropriate repairs.

What is the most common AC repair in Texas?

The most common AC repair in Texas typically revolves around issues with the air conditioner not cooling properly. This is often due to refrigerant leaks, which can significantly impact the system's efficiency. Texas's hot climate puts a lot of strain on AC units, making refrigerant-related issues more prevalent. Other common repairs include problems with the capacitor, which helps the AC motor start up and run efficiently, and the evaporator coil, which can freeze up if the system is not properly maintained.

Why is my AC unit making strange noises?

Strange noises from your AC unit can stem from various issues. If you hear banging or clanking, this could suggest that the indoor blower is unbalanced or that there are loose components within the outdoor compressor. Squealing sounds might indicate a problem with the fan belt being either too loose or too tight. Rattling noises typically arise from loose parts or debris within the system. Grinding or screeching noises are often due to issues with the blower motor or its bearings. Additionally, a high-pitched hissing or whistling sound could point to a refrigerant leak. It’s crucial to have a professional HVAC technician assess and repair these issues to prevent further damage or a complete breakdown.
