7 Signs your Aircon Unit is Failing

A failing aircon unit is the last thing you want to have on hot summer days or even on a regular basis. But how can you tell if your unit is on its way out or just acting up? Here are the signs that your aircon unit is failing: 

1) The air coming out of vents is warmer than usual.

Your aircon unit’s compressor is failing to make ice. Most of the time your aircon system will give you plenty of warning signs before it comes to an end. However, it could also suggest that it might be time for a replacement.

2) The aircon makes strange clicking or buzzing noises, especially when you first turn it on. 

This often means that the air in the outside vents is too hot and dry – in order for your unit to function properly it needs moisture. 

3) Air comes out of vents when the heating is on.

When this happens, or when you notice the compressor is making a loud noise, then it is trying to get rid of built-up heat, moisture, and pressure.

4) The fan is blowing but there’s no cool air coming through

You should make sure that your unit turns off if it detects low levels of airflow, otherwise, the internal components will overheat and eventually fail. Alternatively, if it doesn’t detect low levels of airflow then the problem could be with one of the other components inside your unit.

5) The compressor is leaking fluid.

If your air conditioner is leaking oil or fluid, this is a sure sign that it’s on its way out. A lot of people think they can prolong the problem by draining or replacing the fluid inside their unit – actually, this usually causes more problems and costs a whole load more money.

6) The system cools for about five minutes after turning on.

This means that the air in your aircon unit isn’t circulating properly and the compressor has to work extremely hard to generate cold air – we can definitely relate! This problem is caused by a low level of airflow, which may be caused by a blocked filter, dirty vents, or a burnt-out fan. 

7) The system just doesn’t want to turn on at all.

The problem could also stem from an issue with the internal fuses or PCB – in any case, it is recommended to contact us today so we can get our professionals over to take a look.
