COMMON AIR CONDITIONING ISSUES

AC Unit Runs Constantly

If you live in a warmer climate, it’s normal for your AC unit to run throughout the entire day to maintain your desired indoor temperature. However, AC units should still turn off periodically. Once your space has cooled to the desired temperature, the cooling system receives a signal to turn off. An efficient and properly running air conditioning unit won’t turn back on until your indoor temperature increases. With this complication, our team will first check if the system is working properly according to manufacturer specifications and we will then check every component within the system, including duct work.

Blows Hot Air

If you turn your AC on and your air conditioning unit is blowing hot air out of the air vents instead of cold air, you should contact a professional immediately. With this type of HVAC issue, your air conditioner will be running and costing you money while making your space hotter than you want it to be. The Polar Bear Mechanical team will investigate the issue and determine the root cause. Some of the most common causes to your air conditioner blowing hot air are a leaking coil, low refrigerant levels, air filters needing to be changed, or if there are any restrictions or obstructions within your air ducts.

Refrigerant Leaking

Noticing a refrigerant leak is challenging, especially if you don’t work in the HVAC field. Some telltale signs of a refrigerant leak are a brightly-colored stain near your unit or a frozen air conditioner unit. If you suspect a leak, it’s crucial to turn off your AC unit and contact us immediately. When a unit operates on low refrigerant levels, it can cause permanent damage to your compressor, and replacing air compressors is one of the most costly repairs. Therefore, it’s important to schedule regular AC maintenance so that our team can help you avoid costly HVAC repairs and catastrophic failures. 

Weird Smells

If you’re near your air vents and notice a musty or burning smell coming from them, it’s essential to turn off your air conditioning unit immediately in case you have a wiring issue. There are plastic components within your AC system, and if those begin to burn, it causes a foul odor to enter your space. Another possibility is that your air filters have become dirty and clogged, and there is mildew growth in your air conditioner. Regular AC maintenance is one of the best ways to ensure that your HVAC system can run as efficiently as possible.

Strange Noises

Another repairable air conditioning issue is your unit emitting strange noises. Some possible noises that a faulty air conditioner can create include squeaking, grinding, and buzzing. If you hear these noises, our knowledgeable team will check your air conditioning unit to ensure that you don’t have worn or poorly aligned belts. So, if your belts need replacement or bearings need lubrication, we’ll address these issues to ensure your air conditioning unit can function correctly.

Indoor Leaks

If you have an indoor air conditioning unit and notice a leak, call the professionals at Polar Bear Mechanical, no matter how small the leak. A couple of causes of indoor air conditioning unit leaks are clogged condensate drains and a faulty condensate pump. Clogged condensate drains cause the pipe to back up, and then water runs back into your space. If our professionals notice a broken condensate pump, we’ll replace it to ensure your unit is back up and running. We’ll also make sure that your pipe is free of debris so your system can run efficiently.
