Common AC problems

By Annamawrick Subscribe to RSS | January 27th 2012 | Views:

Unsurprisingly, air conditioning units are always most likely to break down on the hottest days as that is when most of us have them turned up full blast trying to make our homes just that little bit more comfortable. And because everyone else has their AC turned up high on those days too, repairmen are in short supply – and can charge whatever they like to come out to your house to fix it.

Sometimes there is no choice but to call out an expert and, unfortunately, sometimes there is no choice but to pay their expensive repair bill or, even worse, have to buy a whole new AC unit. But many of the most common faults that develop in air conditioning units are easily fixed using a few household tools. There are even tuition videos online that give you step by step visual instructions if you have no idea what the inside of an AC unit looks like.

One of the most common complaints isn't that the air conditioning is no longer working but that it is making a weird noise when it is switched on. This is usually caused by the fan belt coming loose, just like it can in a motor car. Once you have opened up the AC unit using a screwdriver, it will be obvious if this is the problem and it is also a simple job to slip the fan belt back into its usual position, thereby making the AC run smoothly and quietly once again.

If the air conditioner isn't working at all or seems to be having to work longer and harder to cool the room, one of the first things to check for is blocked grilles. Switch off the power and disassemble the unit, cleaning all the pieces as you go. It is especially important to clean the grille at the top and any moving parts, as a build-up of dirt and dust over time will stop these from doing their job effectively.

Not everyone is confident enough with home repairs to tackle even these basic checks, but most people will know a friend or family member who would be willing to do them on their behalf, before they have to resort to calling out an expensive repairman to get the AC unit working again.
