Common AC Repair Issues: When Should I Call an HVAC Professional?

Common Issues With Air Conditioning Systems

While the air conditioning unit has been around for a long time, there have been some changes over the years. The HVAC system that we enjoy today can give immediate relief in the form of high-powered circulating cool air. However, any part of this system can experience an issue that leads to malfunction.

Here are the most common questions we receive as Fire-N-Ice professional HVAC technicians about air conditioning systems!


Why is my AC blowing hot air?

It's likely a refrigerant leak in your system, a dirty air filter, lack of electricity to the connecting outside unit, a thermostat setting error, or a frozen evaporator coil. It's important to keep your Air Conditioning system running smoothly to ensure a healthy climate in your home. All of these problems and be easily repaired by a Fire-N-Ice HVAC technician by giving us a call. 


Why is my AC freezing up?

It's likely that the filters are not being changed regularly, there is a blockage of airflow, or a malfunctioning blower fan. Easily resolve this problem, save on your energy bill, and prevent more costly repairs by scheduling your regular AC tune up. 

Why is my AC leaking water?

It's likely a clogged condensate drain, worn-down condensate pan, bad installation, or a dirty air filter. A water leak can potentially cause a lot of damage to your home and its essential to have this problem fixed right away. 


Other common HVAC issues:

  • Clogged/Dirty Filter — Filters should be cleaned or replaced with semi-regularity. Depending on the level of use, most HVAC teams suggest cleaning the air conditioning filter every three months.

  • Leaking Refrigerant — When coolant begins to leak from the AC unit, homeowners might feel like panicking. This is one of the more problematic AC repair services as its location can alter the cost required to fix. Contact an HVAC professional to explore this issue further.

  • Motor Issues — Breakers and fuses act as safeguards for the AC's motor, preventing the machine from overheating. When a motor dies, the issue can be identified by flipped breakers or blown fuses.
