Scary Air Conditioning Signs

Updated: Feb 10, 2023

Unfortunately, no matter how great your air conditioning system is, it will encounter issues from time to time. The good news here is that problems within your system can quite often be easily identified if you know what signs to look for. Below are several AC signs that, upon noticing, you should not ignore, as they can provide you with insight into what issues your system may be experiencing.

Air Conditioner

1. Black Air Filter

Because your air conditioning system takes air in from outside sources, there are filters within the system that need to be cleaned and replaced on a regular basis. When the filters inside an AC system become so dirty that they are black when removed, they can cause the system to malfunction in various ways. Not only that but a black or dirty air filter can cause a host of indoor air quality issues as well.

2. Malfunctioning Drainage

If you notice that there are fluids of any kind leaking from your air conditioning unit, this is a sign that the drainage functions within your system are not functioning properly. Drainage systems in an air conditioner should be maintained regularly because when they are not working right, they can dispel fluids into other areas of your home, which can lead to many types of damage.

3. No Cold Air

If your AC is not blowing cold air, this could indicate that there is some kind of refrigerant leak within the system. These leaks can be quite serious if they are not dealt with quickly, so you will want to get moving on a solution as soon as you notice this sure sign of trouble. Contact us now to get started.

4. Sensor Issues

There are many sensors within your HVAC unit, all of which relay important information to the various systems within it. When these sensors are damaged or dirty, they can create unreliable results from your HVAC system. The first thing you will notice if your system is having sensor issues is that there will be discrepancies between the information your thermostat displays and the atmosphere you are feeling in your home.
