When your air conditioner is not performing as expected, it may be time to call the professionals. Before you call someone to come out and inspect the unit, make sure you do the following:

  1. Check Your Thermostat. Confirm the settings are correct and that you have it set to the desired temperature.
  2. Check Your Outdoor Unit. Walk around the outdoor AC unit and check for debris. It is common for plants to grow too close and block airflow. Occasionally, after a storm, debris from your landscaping can get trapped in the vents. Trim back any plants that are near the AC unit. If anything is stuck in the blades or a blade is bent, call an expert.
  3. Check Your Air Filter. A clogged filter can affect the efficiency of your air conditioner. It should be checked monthly and change as needed.

Does Your Air Conditioning Unit Need to Be Repaired?

Here’s a list of common issues that require repairing your air conditioner:

Your A/C completely stops working

  • The first place to check is your thermostat. Make sure the batteries are still good, and replace them if needed. Also, the thermostat should be set to “cooling” mode, and at the temperature setting that you desire. If the thermostat is in working order, check the A/C circuit breaker, and make sure it is in the “on” position. If there is still a problem with your air conditioner after these troubleshooting tips, you will need to call an A/C expert to inspect the unit.

The air coming from the A/C is not cold

  • When your A/C is blowing hot or warm air, it is usually a problem with the compressor/outdoor unit. It may also be that the refrigerant is low in your air conditioner. Another common cause, is a broken or disconnected return duct that is pulling in unconditioned air from outside or your attic space

The A/C is cooling unevenly

  • Fluctuating temperatures in your home, are usually the result of leaky ductwork, blocked vents/registers, or poor insulation. Check the vents throughout your home to make sure they are clean, open, and unobstructed.

Water is dripping from the A/C unit

  • When there is refrigerant leaking from the drain line, it can cause ice to build up on the coils and drip water. However, frozen coils are also indicative of problems with airflow from debris surrounding the A/C unit, a dirty air filter, or even obstructed duct work. If your air conditioner is frozen, turn it off and allow it to defrost on its own. You should also call a professional HVAC technician to inspect the unit.

Strange noises coming from the A/C unit

  • Screeching or squealing sounds coming from the blower motor is a sign of a motor bearing problem, or a damaged belt that might break.
  • Rattling, clanging, banging or thumping is a sign of a problem with the blower or motor assembly. Call an A/C professional if you hear these noises.
  • A consistent ticking or smacking noise, like playing cards on a bicycle spoke, while the blower is running usually means something is stuck in the blower blades or the housing surrounding the blower. Always turn off the A/C before inspecting the blower for debris.
  • A Rattling noise that happens when the fan turns and the compression is on is likely due to a failing motor or loose hardware.
  • Clicking when the A/C powers on and off is usually a problem with a relay.

The compressor fan is broken

  • A broken fan can cause the system’s compressor to overheat. An overheated compressor could trigger the air conditioner’s safety controls, turning your air conditioner off. Overheating may also cause damage to the compressor itself, requiring home AC repair or compressor replacement.

The condenser coils are frozen in the outdoor unit

  • When the air conditioner’s condenser coils are frozen, your system will not run properly. The poor airflow through your cooling system will cause ice to form on the coils. Obstructions that typically cause poor airflow are dirty air filters or blocked return air ducts. You may also need a refrigerant charge, if the refrigerant is low. A home A/C repair technician can diagnose the issue behind your frozen coils, resolve it, and safely thaw your coils to restore cooling in your home.

Which Contractor is Right for Your Indianapolis Air Conditioner?

If your home’s HVAC system needs a total replacement, or emergency repairs or even just routine maintenance, selecting the right contractor is an important, but often overwhelming task. Here are some tips to help you hire a qualified professional that is a fit for you.

Research your local companies

  • Visit their websites, and see what their values are. How long have they been in business? How do they approach their clients?

Ask friends and family

  • Find out which contacts the people you trust have used and who they recommend

Check online reviews from reliable sources

  • Facebook and Google provide unfiltered reviews you can check before choosing an HVAC contractor

Look for a license number

  • You want a contractor that is licensed, bonded, and insured. A contractor should have their license number clearly marked on their website and most of their literature. Without a license, the job is not insured to be done properly and no assurance for recourse to be taken if things go wrong. There’s too much at stake to not follow up on this one.

Make sure you get a written estimate

  • A reputable contractor will adhere to a written bid. But be careful, the lowest bid may not be the most qualified candidate for your home.
