Should I Repair My AC Myself?

Today’s air conditioners are very complex, and require specialized tools and extensive training. Although you may be tempted to repair your AC yourself to try to save money, it’s better to leave this work to the professionals.

Even diagnostics and simple repairs should only be performed by trained technicians. Laws have been put in place by the EPA that cover the purchasing and handling of refrigerant. One of these laws states that it can only be purchased by an HVAC specialist.

One thing you are able to do as a homeowner, is replace your AC filter. Leave all other repairs to a professional.

When Should You Call an AC Repair Professional?

The sooner you call an AC professional when your air conditioning begins to show signs of an issue, the better off you’ll be. Ignoring the problem can lead to more serious and expensive repairs. If your AC is over 10 years old and is nearing the end of its life, there may be nothing that can be done to fix it. Replacing the unit, in this situation, is probably your best option. If your unit is less than 10 years old and is having issues, there are a few signs you can look for that let you know you should call in a professional.

Low Airflow From Vents

If you are getting insufficient airflow from your AC vents, it may mean that something is wrong with the compressor or the ducts. In this situation, your system is using more energy to try to cool your home, which can end up being very costly. An experienced technician can have your unit working efficiently in no time.

Temperatures Are Inconsistent Throughout the Home

It can be frustrating when some rooms in your home seem to never cool down, while others are always freezing. It is normal for higher levels of a house to be slightly warmer than lower levels, but a large difference in temperature can be a sign of a problem. The issue could be coming from clogged or leaking ducts, insufficient insulation, or problems with vents.

Bad Smells Coming From The Unit

A strange smell coming from the vents could indicate a problem somewhere between the AC unit and the vents. This could be a burnt wire or possibly mold.

Strange Noises

If you begin to hear noises that differ from the usual humming of your AC unit, this could be a sign it is in need of repair. You may hear a banging noise, clicking noise, high pitched squeal, rattling noise or buzzing. All of these sounds indicate a problem. Unusual noises usually indicate an issue with a blower fan, fan motor, condenser, expansion valve, refrigerant piping, or compressor.

Leaking Unit

If you are noticing fluid leaking from your device, it may be harmless water, but could also be harmful refrigerant. If it is water, it could mean you need to replace your condensation tubes. If the liquid is refrigerant, your refrigerant lines may be in need of replacement. Either way, you should call in a professional to diagnose the issue.

The Thermostat Isn’t Working

This may not be a problem at all with your system, but with the on switch. A trained technician will look over the wiring to make sure the AC unit and thermostat are communicating to each other, and will possibly need to re-calibrate the thermostat.

Excessively High Energy Bills

A higher than normal electric bill can indicate a problem with your unit. A spike in your bill can indicate that your AC unit is having to work harder because of an issue. A professional will be able to assess and diagnose any problems.

What Happens If I Ignore Minor AC Problems?

If you are experiencing an issue that only happens occasionally, you may be tempted to ignore the problem. Unfortunately, most minor problems with an AC still need to be addressed, because they can become larger problems. Over time, parts can wear out or loosen. It’s important to have your unit routinely maintenanced and assessed by a professional whenever an issue occurs, no matter how small.
