Common Issues AC Units Face

When properly maintained, air conditioners can last a long time. However, even the best air conditioner can run into problems sometimes. Some common issues that air conditioning systems face include:

Not Producing Cold Air

Producing cool, comfortable Calgary air remains one of the main functions of heating and cooling units. However, the lack of cold air may indicate several other concerns that your air conditioner might have. Our team will start by ruling out issues like:

  • Thermostat settings: Your thermostat is instrumental in telling your air conditioner when to cool or heat your home. You should first check your thermostat’s settings and whether or not they’re functioning correctly. If your thermostat malfunctions, it might be time for a Smart thermostat.
  • A dirty air filter: While sometimes overlooked, your air conditioning units’ filters assume a huge responsibility. Air filters prevent pollutants like pet dander, smoke, dirt, etc., from circulating throughout your home. A dirty or clogged air filter can restrict your AC unit airflow.
  • An obstructed outdoor unit: Your air conditioning setup may have an outdoor unit. Check that nothing like branches, bushes, or other obstructions constrict the unit’s airflow.

If these aren’t the source of the problem, our air conditioning and furnace team can investigate further. For example, you may have a malfunctioning part or a refrigerant leak.

Central Air Unit Cools Unevenly

Sometimes your new air conditioning system may unevenly cool your home. When this happens, you may not have a malfunctioning part. Instead, you might have unique problems that require unique solutions. For example, leaky ducts typically cause fluctuations in humidity and temperatures. Blocked registers and inadequate insulation can also trigger this issue. Our team can investigate and recommend solutions. Two strategies may include:
  1. Installing a zoning system for regulating the temperatures of specific rooms
  2. Installing a mini-split heat pump with variable refrigerant controls, resolving heating and cooling issues in uncomfortable spaces.

Your Air Conditioner Isn’t Turning On

Another issue homeowners face is their air conditioner simply won’t turn on in the morning. Sometimes the culprit is a tripped circuit breaker. Other times loose wiring or a bad thermostat can trigger this issue.

Your Unit Is Short-cycling

Short cycling is when your unit continues to turn on and off. While the problem often dtems from just a clogged air filter or a wrongly set thermostat, this issue can lead to a broken compressor.

Air Conditioners Producing Odd Noises

Your air conditioner has a lot of moving parts. So when you start to hear odd noises like ringing, clanking, clicking, or banging, these can potentially indicate severe issues you need to fix.

A squealing noise often means your fan belts have worn out. Meanwhile, high-pitched, loud hissing can signal a broken compressor. You’re more likely to hear these sounds when your AC unit turns off or on.

You Smell Unpleasant Odours

It’s essential to call us if you smell unpleasant odours wafting from your air conditioner. The issue might be a dirty air filter or a more severe problem, like mould growth.

Moisture Leaks

Often moisture leaks do not reveal a massive issue if you only spot minor moisture forming around your central air system. Usually, this indicates condensation, an entirely normal and expected occurrence.

However, you should call Furnace Fellas if you have a considerable buildup of water or water leaks producing strange colours or smells. This issue can indicate a refrigerant leak which poses an immediate health risk.

Additionally, if your air conditioner freezes, you’ll want to implement emergency rep.

High Energy Bills

Naturally, the more you use your new AC unit, the higher your energy bills will be, especially in summer. However, if your bills skyrocket and can’t be easily explained—such as having more people in the home, hotter temperatures than usual, etc.—you may need repairs.

You Didn’t Install Your Air Conditioner Properly

Many homeowners become shocked when their new AC suddenly stops working or is less energy efficient. Unfortunately, not every company or contractor offers quality work. Additionally, sometimes people install their air conditioner themselves.

While you can save a few quick bucks by installing your unit yourself or having a non-professional do repairs, you will likely spend more in the long run. Our AC install and repair services ensure you receive the best quality at a price you can afford.

Your Air Conditioner Is Reaching Its Lifespan

While every air conditioner is different, most models last between 15 to 20 years, even with the proper maintenance. Once they reach this age, their energy efficiency and ability to cool your home start to decrease. They will also require more frequent repairs.

At Furnace Fellas, we always strive to provide honest and transparent solutions. Our repair process starts with diagnosing your air conditioner.

Sometimes we may conclude that it would be better to install a new unit. If this happens, our team can help you explore options. We can also estimate how much a new air conditioner and AC installation would cost.

We often recommend high-efficiency air conditioners with an excellent SEER rating. For example, you can buy an energy-efficient AC cooling system from ENERGY STAR.

How Regular Maintenance and Tune-Ups Can Help

Our Furnace Fellas team knows the best way to avoid costly repairs and new air conditioner installations is through regular maintenance and tune-up sessions.

Our team can quickly inspect your air conditioners, perform minor maintenance tasks, and fix problems before they escalate into significant issues. In addition, by having our team maintain your central air conditioners, you can benefit from:

Better Indoor Comfort

A happy air conditioner means a happy home. With our help, your cooling system will perform its best work, cooling your home and keeping you and your family relaxed. Energy-efficient air conditioners also help with high humidity levels.

An Increase in Air Quality

A high-efficiency air conditioner or furnace goes a long way in improving your indoor air quality. By regularly cleaning your duct system and replacing air filters, you can remove nasty pollutants like:

    • Pet dander
    • Smoke
    • Oil
    • Allergens
    • Dead skin cells
    • General dirt and grime

These nasty pollutants produce foul odours and can cause breathing problems, especially for people with allergies or asthma. Another issue that stems from poor air is mould spores.

Pollutants and musty air go hand and hand with high humidity. Humid areas with lots of moisture are perfect spots for mould to thrive. Mould can cause various health problems alongside damaging your home.

Extending the Lifespan of Your Air Conditioning System

Even the best air conditioning system can quickly break down due to negligence. Regular tune-ups from Furnace Fellas ensure your new AC unit system continues to perform well years later. In addition, we handle various types of air conditioning systems.

Lower Energy Bills

Many people opt for a new air conditioner installation to increase energy efficiency. Sometimes you may need a new air conditioning installation. Often, however, you can gain high efficiency with regular tune-ups.

Changing your air filter or flushing your drain can give your air conditioner greater energy efficiency. Enjoy high efficiency and a bigger bank account with our expert air conditioner installation and repair services.
