How to Tell When an AC System Needs Troubleshooting
It always seems like an air conditioner breaks down at the least convenient of times. Even though it seems like AC issues are unexpected, however, there are always subtle signs to look for. Identifying what these are before the unit experiences a total collapse can save a lot of money and hassle. As soon as any of these signs appear, get ahold of one of our helpful technicians for a more detailed inspection.
Residents should always seek the support of a knowledgeable AC specialist when:
- The system struggles with cooling the entire house
- A poor amount of air is blowing from the ventilation system
- The vents have accumulated frost or ice, no matter the season
- There is constant short-cycling as the system runs
- The air filter looks coated with dirt and dust particles
- The vents or the sides of the system display signs of mildew, mold, or fungi
- Different rooms are experiencing uneven levels of cooling
- The system lets off unpleasant odors of burnt plastic and metal as soon as it is turned on

One of the most obvious indications that the AC system is in trouble is when it is displaying signs of ice and frost. Many people may assume that this is simply because the level of heating is too low, or that the air conditioner is too powerful. However, frost on the vents or along the filter of an AC system has nothing to do with the settings of the unit. It also is unrelated to the temperature outside, since this issue can occur during any season of the year. Instead, the issue is that there is likely some trouble with the AC unit’s air filter. This filter is designed to prevent bits of debris, like dust, pollen, and dander from getting into the unit. Even a single bit of dirt or clump of pet fur can get caught up in the gears, causing them to malfunction.
No matter how good an air filter is, however, it will eventually become blocked up. The accumulation of hair, lint, mildew, dried mud, and more will stop the air from being filtered. As this flow is halted, the coils will be missing critical circulation. This results in increased condensation, and because the moisture cannot escape, it freezes over. A faulty filter will in turn cause other parts of the system to malfunction, so it is key to have it fixed right away.
