5 Warning Signs of a Faulty Air Conditioner

5 warning signs, faulty air conditioner
Odours

If you notice a musky like smell when you air conditioning unit is turned on it is an indicator of moulds growing throughout your system. This would require a deep sanitize and clean of the system. Do not hesitate to contact our friendly team to assist with this. Another reason, although rare, is that the air conditioner’s insulation wire has burnt out, requiring repair.

 
Not Cooling Enough

Even when the air conditioning unit is put on full blast you may find that it is not cooling enough. This can mean that your system has low refrigerant or the unit’s compressor has ultimately failed. This is a very common issue amongst units and is an indicator of needing a service or repairs.

 
Leakage

If there is water spraying out of the vent of the air conditioning unit, this could be either an indication of a mould build up which blocks the drain or more seriously a refrigerant leak. A refrigerant leak is a serious problem which poses a threat to your home and family. Do not hesitate to contact our friendly team to assist with this.

 
Weak Air Flow

If there is a weak air flow coming out of the vents, 90% of the time it is because of a failing compressor in the unit. If it is a ducted system, there is a good chance it could also be a damaged duct. Getting this problem fixed as soon as possible is imperative as if not serviced or repaired sooner can cause additional damages costing you a lot more than need be.

 
Noisy

When you start to hear grinding or grating like noises coming from your air conditioning unit please pay immediate attention to it, if not tended to quickly, it can result in total breakdown of the unit, which will cost you a lot more to fix or replace.
