Cool air can go a long way to keeping you comfortable and productive. Your best bet at finding cool, crisp air in South Florida is from a well-maintained air conditioner. Everything can be going perfectly until our AC skips a few beats and stops blowing out the good stuff. Here are the common AC repair questions and answers to give you an AC repair head start.

Why Is My AC Air Conditioner Not Blowing Cold Air?

Is your air conditioner making all the right noises, but not blowing out cold air? Your first step is to check the thermostat to see what it’s set to. If it’s set on ‘AUTO’, rather set it to ‘ON’. Your thermostat needs to be set to a colder temperature than the air in the room. Next is to change the filter, if these steps don’t help, it’s best to get an AC repair expert to get your AC services.

Why Is My Air Conditioner Leaking?

It’s normal for your AC unit to show some condensation when in use. However, excessive leaks are not normal and should be addressed. Some causes of leaks include:

  • Rusted condensation pan
  • Clogged condensation line
  • Low refrigerant level
  • Dirty or frozen evaporator coil
  • Dirty air filter

If you suspect that your AC is letting out too much water, then get it checked out.

Why Is My AC Making A Noise?

Air conditioners make some expected noises. The white noise hum of an AC can even be comforting. But if your AC starts squealing, banging, rattling, or buzzing, then something could be very wrong. Unsure if the noise is normal or not? You will know the sound your AC makes, so if it sounds off, trust your instinct. Now, there are a few AC repairs you can do yourself. Or at least attempt to do it yourself if you want to. But when it comes to AC mechanics, it’s always best to contact an AC repair facility to come and take a look.

When Should I Replace My Air Conditioner?

Air conditioners last anywhere from 10-20 years. If your AC is older than 10 years, it may be time to get it replaced. Before proceeding, these tell-tale signs will help guide your decision:

Steep Energy Bills

Air conditioners get less efficient as they get older. They start using more power to cool a room, increasing your energy bill. Look over your energy bills from the past few months to see if there’s been a noticeable increase.


As mentioned earlier, leaks can be a warning sign of an underlying problem with your AC. A leak can also point toward an aging AC unit.

Repair Costs

Take note of how much you’re paying for repairs. Minor repairs don’t usually point to a failing unit. But if you’re having to pay a substantial amount for a repair, it may be cheaper to replace the unit.
