Air Conditioner Getting Old? 3 Problems You May Have In The Future


If your air conditioner is getting old, you will likely have problems in the future. Below are three common problems you should watch for so you can get your air conditioner repaired by a professional. This will help save you money because in some cases, problems can lead to much more damage to your air conditioning system, which would result in either higher repair bills or the need for a replacement.


If your air conditioner unit is overheating, it can be dangerous, so you should turn off the air conditioner until you have it repaired. In most cases, the air conditioner will automatically shut off on its own as a safety measure.

In many cases, overheating is due to problems with the outside fan. If this fan is not working, the air compressor can overheat. If you continue to run the system at this point, you will cause the compressor to completely fail, which would result in replacement or other damage to the internal parts of the air conditioning unit.

No Power

If your air conditioning unit will not turn on, the first thing to check is the circuit breaker. If the circuit breaker is off, turn it back on to see if your unit will start again. Even if this is the case, you should try to determine why the circuit breaker tripped off.

In many cases this can be due to problems with the wiring inside the air conditioner. Wiring problems can prevent the air conditioning from getting power and can cause the circuit breaker to trip. Wiring inside the unit can be dangerous to work with, so make sure you have a professional repair this problem for you.

 Not Cooling

If the air from the air conditioning unit is not cool, it can be due to many things. One common thing with this is low refrigerant levels. Refrigerant is a chemical that is used to cool the air that is inside the air conditioner. If you do have low levels of this chemical, you likely have a leak somewhere.

This needs to be reported quickly because this chemical is dangerous to breathe in. An air conditioning repair company can determine where the leak is. If there is no leak, then the problem could be with the entire refrigeration system so it would have to be either repaired or replaced.

Talk with the air conditioning repair contractor to learn more about these problems, as well as other issues you can expect.
