Signs Your Air Conditioning Unit Isn’t Working Properly

Knowing when your cooling unit is malfunctioning is essential as it can prevent further damage from happening to your appliance that may lead to future breakdowns that require you to purchase a new system before its service life has expired.

Here is a closer look at some of the red flags that could suggest it’s time to book a professional Ottawa air conditioner repair for your home:

A significant increase in your monthly utility costs

Have you noticed an increase in your monthly cooling costs despite not using your air conditioners any more frequently? If so, your air conditioner is not operating as efficiently as it should, thus indicating there is a problem with your unit that require repair services.

Leaking refrigerant from your air conditioner unit

While condensation on your air conditioners is normal, pooling of water or refrigerant leaks is an indication that there is broken coil within your system that may need to be repaired or replaced entirely.

A refrigerant leak that is not repaired quickly can lead to further damages to your air conditioners that require more extensive, costly repairs later down the road. As such, it’s essential that you book a thorough inspection with qualified technicians as soon as you notice there is something wrong.

Poor indoor air quality

If your indoor air quality has diminished greatly in the last couple of weeks, you’ll start to notice an increase in dust around your home and experience allergy-like symptoms. This often happens when the air filter is clogged and needs to be replaced.

At the same time, if you have low refrigerant levels, you may also experience high humidity levels indoors that can impact your air quality. Excess moisture can make your living conditions incredibly uncomfortable, warranty immediate AC unit repair services.

No cool air is coming from your air conditioning

If there is no cool air coming from your Ottawa air conditioner, there could be a problem with your duct system, or the air filter. The filter will need to be changed or cleaned to remove any blockages that could be preventing the AC unit from cooling your interior.

Strange smells are coming from your air conditioner

If there are unpleasant scents coming from your AC appliance, you may be dealing with mould and mildew growth from within your air conditioner. This can not only cause damage to your cooling system, but it can also reduce the quality of your indoor air. Technicians will have to go into the indoor and outdoor compartments to remove any mould and mildew to prevent further growth.

Odd sounds are coming from your air conditioning unit

Odd, loud noises such as rattling, banging, or screeching could suggest that there are mechanical components within your air conditioner that are loose or broken. You will need to book an air conditioner repair appointment with a qualified cooling technician in order to fix the issue.

Our FAQS

Providing you With Answers & Solutions
  • What is the lifespan of an air conditioner?
    If you have an older air conditioning system installed in your home, its lifespan is likely approximately 5 to 10 years old. On the other hand, newer, more innovative air conditioning units can last up to 20 years before needing to be entirely replaced. To ensure you get the most out of your air conditioning unit, we encourage homeowners to stay up to date on their yearly maintenance routines to prevent serious damage and save money on costly repairs that could have otherwise been prevented.
  • Is it worth it to repair an air conditioner?

    Generally speaking, older air conditioning units have a lifespan of approximately 5 to 10 years before they will need to be replaced. Therefore, if your air conditioning system is around 7 or 8 years old, it may be worth purchasing a new unit instead of spending the money on fixing your current unit. This is because newer air conditioning units have been designed to be more energy-efficient which will save you money on your monthly heating and cooling bills. In addition, newer modeled air conditioning units are also constructed to last longer than older models. Therefore, rather than lasting up to 10 years, homeowners can rely on a newer system for up to 20 years before it will need to be replaced. 

    If you are unsure whether or not it is worth repairing your current air conditioning unit as opposed to purchasing a new one, we suggest booking a free consultation with the team at Anchor Home Comfort. We’ll have an experienced technician come to your home and conduct a thorough inspection before providing you with professional suggestions on how to increase your home’s energy efficiency. If you do decide to purchase a new air conditioning unit, we’ll help you choose one that will work best in your home and ensure it is installed as soon as possible. On the other hand, if your current air conditioning unit is repairable, our technicians will fix the problem to ensure your unit is back up and running optimally for your home.

  • Why is my AC causing such high electric bills?

    If your AC appliance is causing your monthly utility costs to increase significantly, you’re likely dealing with an internal problem that is affecting the energy efficiency levels of your system, which will cause you to spend more money to cool your home.

    Therefore, we suggest booking a repair service to have your system inspected by a specialists who can diagnose the issue and get your appliance backup and operating correctly.

  • Can I prevent AC problems?

    Ac unit problems can be frustrating to deal with, especially during the middle of a heat wave. Luckily, there are ways homeowners can prevent damages from occuring in the first place. To ensure you don’t experience an unexpected breakdown of your cooling system, we recommend doing the following:

    Yearly maintenance appointment

    Annual maintenance appointments with a certified HVAC technician is one of the best ways you can prevent AC unit problems from happening in the first place. We suggest booking your cooling maintenance services in Ottawa in the springtime, before temperatures in the area increase. That way, you won’t have to worry about AC problems during the summer.

    Air filter maintenance

    Another important maintenance task that homeowners need to do on a regular basis is change the air filter in their air conditioner unit. This maintenance task should be performed every 1 to 3 months to ensure proper airflow from your air conditioner. It will also prevent strain on your equipment that requires you to book and spend money on AC repair services in the long run.

    Duct cleaning

    Homeowners in Ottawa will also need to book a duct work maintenance appointment every once in a while. Much like your air filters, the ducts in your home can clog with dust hair, dirt, and other debris that will damage your AC over time.

    We recommend booking this maintenance appointment once every 2 to 3 years.

    Beyond these required maintenance tasks, homeowners should ensure the area around their AC is free of debris or obstacles that could hinder airflow from the unit.

  • My AC is leaking, what kind of repair do I need?

    If your AC is leaking, the repair needed depends on the source of the leak. Common causes include clogged condensate drain lines, refrigerant leak, or damaged internal parts.

    A professional HVAC technician can diagnose the issue and perform repairs such as unclogging drains, sealing the refrigerant leak, or replacing damaged parts.
