Indianapolis Air Conditioning Repair

Signs That You Need Air Conditioning Repair

Unfortunately, air conditioners can’t speak to us to let us know what’s wrong. However, there are several signs to watch out for that indicate an AC repair is needed. Here are a few of those signs the technicians at Thiele see on a frequent basis.

Low Airflow

If your air conditioner’s airflow suddenly weakens, your system must work harder to properly cool your Indianapolis home, and a fix is likely needed. Some of the most common reasons for weak airflow include a clogged or dirty HVAC filter, issues with the AC blower, leaky or blocked air ducts, or frozen evaporator coils. You can check your system’s filter and replace it if necessary; however, you’ll need to call an HVAC company if the other three issues are at play.

No Cool Air

Coming inside on a hot summer’s day to a warm house is the last thing any Indianapolis homeowner wants to experience. If your AC isn’t blowing cold air, it could be a problem as minor as turning the thermostat on to as complex as a faulty compressor.

Before you call an Indianapolis HVAC company, check that the issue isn’t related to a dirty outdoor condenser unit, a dirty or clogged air filter, or an incorrect thermostat setting. If none of these are the culprit, call Thiele. No cool air can also be caused by a faulty compressor, low refrigerant level, a broken condenser fan, and damaged air ducts.

System is Short Cycling

Air conditioner short cycling occurs when your unit turns on and shuts off too frequently without properly cooling your Indianapolis home. This can lead to excess wear and tear, higher energy bills, and reduced AC efficiency.

Again, a dirty HVAC filter could be the problem. When your system’s filter becomes too clogged, your HVAC unit must work harder to compensate for the lost airflow, causing the unit to work harder and possibly overheat, thus causing the short cycling. Repairs that will likely need to be addressed by a professional include:

  • An oversized AC unit
  • Dirty or iced evaporator coil
  • Low refrigerant level

Strange Smells

If you notice a foul smell coming from your AC, several issues could be to blame. One of the most common smells is called “dirty sock syndrome.” This smell is typically caused when dust and moisture build-up on the AC evaporator coil and filter, leading to the formation of mold and mildew. Mold and mildew can also form due to a clogged condensate drain line.
