However, if you need an expert, do not hesitate to contact our air conditioner repair professionals to get your air conditioner serviced today.


One of the most common reasons an air conditioner does not work correctly is a clogged or dirty filter. You should figure out what the manufacturer’s suggestions are and how often you need to change your air filter. Most are monthly, some are three months, and reusable air filters should be cleaned when dirty. A good tip is to hold the air filter up to the light; if the light does not pass through, air will not. Dirty air filters significantly reduce airflow and can cause your unit to freeze if neglected.

Poor Airflow

If you notice that there’s not much air coming from your unit, we recommend changing your air filters and checking the unit’s motor. If you cannot identify the issue, then it’s likely that you have a severe problem, and you should contact your local HVAC company to help you with a fix.


During these spring and early summer months, you can expect higher humidity than average. Most air conditioner units should be able to regulate humidity levels automatically. Still, if your unit seems to be frozen, you may need to call a professional to come to diagnose your problem and how they can solve it for you.


An air conditioner relies almost entirely on refrigerant to cool your home. Sometimes it may even produce condensation as it is operating. If you spot this issue, address it immediately, as these should never leak or accumulate into your home.

Loud and Unusual Noises

It is common for a low buzz to occur when your air conditioner is running and about to shut down. However, if your unit makes sudden loud or unusual grinding noises, it can be a sign that there’s a bigger problem with your cooling system.
