Sometimes, an AC breakdown comes out of nowhere. That’s why King offers 24/7 AC repair services—often, the need for repair takes you and your home by surprise. But, there are other times when there are AC breakdown signs before the breakdown happens. In this blog post, we’ll review some of these signs and when you need to call King.
First: How you can avoid an AC breakdown
We all know how excruciating summer can become as the mercury goes up and up and the humidity takes over. You need your AC unit firing on all cylinders. We recommend having King inspect and tune up your AC unit before the start of the season.
With that in mind, here are some signs of an impending AC breakdown:
#1. There’s refrigerant leakage
If you notice that your air conditioning unit is taking more time to cool off your living space than usual, then there might be a leakage of refrigerant. Simply filling up your air conditioning system with new refrigerant won’t solve the problem until you get the leakage repaired. In other words, it is necessary to call King to come take look at the problem ASAP.
#2. Your air conditioner isn’t responding to the thermostat
The cooling capabilities of your air conditioning unit can also be affected by an out-of-position sensor. This problem usually occurs in ductless air conditioners, but can also impact standard air conditioners. When the sensor comes in contact with the evaporator coil inside the AC unit, it can affect the performance of your air conditioning unit.
Only a professional AC repair technician—like the certified techs at King—should be trusted to make this repair to your air conditioner.
#3. At times, warm air is coming from the air conditioner
In the summers, warm air coming from your air conditioning unit indicates that there might be some serious fault within the system. Sudden drop in the levels of refrigerant or compressor failure are the most likely reason for this phenomenon.
#4. There’s no air flow and your system struggles
Another problem is when you sense you’re your unit is not giving out any air or very less air. This can happen either due to a problem with the blower or clogged ducts.
Blowers run on electricity and there also might be an issue with the electrical connections within the system. Never attempt to fix electrical wires or connections yourself! Doing so can be very dangerous. Call King instead.
