what causes ac problems?
If your AC is failing to perform as it should, it could be due to a number of issues. One of the most common causes of AC problems is a dirty or clogged air filter. A blocked air filter can restrict airflow and make your AC work harder than it needs to. While this issue is simple to fix, repairing the problems that have resulted from not replacing the filter sooner often require the services of a professional.
Additional reasons your AC may be experiencing problems include:
- Low refrigerant levels
- Blocked drainpipes
- Broken condensate pan
- Damaged compressor
- Stuck contractor
- Malfunctioning blower or motor
- Faulty electrical components
- Broken thermostat
- Lack of maintenance
- Improper installation
Why Is My AC Making Strange Noises?
When something goes wrong with your AC, you might notice odd noises coming from your system. There are different sounds depending on the type of issue. For example, if your unit has a refrigerant leak, it might produce a hissing sound. Loud banging, rattling, or thumping sounds could be due to a problem with the blower or motor assembly. Faulty electrical components may produce a buzzing noise. If you hear screeching, it’s likely an issue with your compressor or fan motor. Our HVAC experts will quickly identify why your unit is producing strange noises and advise you on the best solution.
