Air Conditioner (AC) Repair: Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have questions about air conditioning repair? If you live in Central Indiana, submit your air conditioning repair question. Below are some of the most common questions we hear about air conditioners, along with the answers from the R.T. Moore air conditioning repair experts.
Q: How long does my air conditioning refrigerant last?
A: Your air conditioning refrigerant should last forever, providing your air conditioning system does not have any leaks. If you feel you are losing air conditioning refrigerant, our air conditioner experts can test your AC system. If the air conditioner refrigerant is leaking, you will need to have that repaired and new refrigerant added. Until then, you won’t have optimal cooling.
Q: If my air conditioner is dirty, is that a problem? Aren’t they designed to be outside in the elements?
A: Yes, and yes. The outdoor portion of your air conditioner is well suited for the elements, but it still needs to be cleaned. You may not realize your air conditioner isn’t working efficiently (and costing you money) until it performs so poorly that it appears to be broken, or actually has worn out a component from running so much. Contact us both for preventative care and a fix if needed.
Q: Are there options for air conditioning systems to help improve my health?
A: We do offer options for your heating and cooling systems that will greatly improve indoor air quality. Contact us for more information.
Q: The big pipe on my air conditioner has ice on it. Is my AC okay?
A: This can be caused by a few different things that might need air conditioning repair. Please turn your air conditioner off and call our air conditioning experts. Turning off your air conditioner will allow the ice to begin melting so our AC technicians can assess the issue when they arrive. If there is ice on the air conditioner pipe, it’s hard for them to resolve the issue because they can’t see the underlying AC components.
Q: Why is my air conditioner so noisy?
A: If you have a heat pump, you could be hearing the defrost cycle. Air conditioners can also be noisy if they are not level. If you hear a sound that you’ve never heard your AC system make, please be careful near the unit as many volts of electricity can be found here. Definitely, contact us for assistance. Don’t try to service this yourself.
Q: Is my air conditioning getting ready to fail?
A: Many manufacturers will say their AC equipment has a life expectancy of 10-15 years. Unfortunately, this is not the case with all air conditioners. Our experts offer free estimates if you think your air conditioner might need replacement.
Q: What type of AC filters should I use with my air conditioning?
A: We recommend 5-inch media filters. In some situations, these filters are not an option. See an upcoming video for different types of filters we recommend.
Q: How often should I change my air conditioning filter when there is construction going on in my home?
A: Check your AC filter weekly. A dirty AC filter can cause damage to your system. This can also immediately shut off your heat or air conditioning.
Q: Why is there water always dripping from my air conditioning system?
A: This could be caused by your humidifier, your air conditioner running, or high-efficiency furnaces forming condensation. You may want to contact us if it seems excessive.
Q: I have plants growing around and on my outside AC unit to cover it. Is that okay?
A: No, you want to provide adequate space around your air conditioning unit to allow for proper air flow. Two to three feet clearance on the sides is recommended. Trees above should also have at five feet of clearance from the AC unit.
Q: Should I cover my air conditioning in winter?
A: No, you don’t want to cover your AC in the winter. This can trap moisture and accelerate rusting in your air conditioner.
Q: Should I clean my ductwork? Will that help my air conditioner?
A: Cleaning ductwork depends on the home. While our heating and cooling expert is in your home, ask their opinion regarding your duct work.
Q: How much does a new air conditioner cost?
A: The cost of an air conditioner varies based on the size of your home and many other requirements. You don’t want an air conditioner that is too small, and can’t cool your house adequately. But you also don’t want it larger than you need, or you may waste energy. It’s always worth your time to have someone look at in person – we can give you the proper balance of cooling and cost savings.
Q: Why is my upstairs so hot? Is my air conditioning not working?
A: In a 2 story home, heat rises. Many homes lack enough return air to properly remove the heat from upstairs. Our heating and cooling experts can offer options to eliminate some of this temperature difference between floors. Contact us for information.
Q: Should I wash the air conditioning coil?
A: A homeowner can wash their air conditioner coil, however, it is possible to damage and bend parts depending on design. It’s much safer to have one of our technicians clean the AC coil, so give us a call to be safe.
Q: How long does my refrigerant last in my air conditioning?
A: Your AC refrigerant could last forever, providing your system does not have any leaks. If you feel you are losing refrigerant, our refrigerant heating and cooling experts can test your system.
Q: Why is the outdoor air conditioning coil rotting?
A: When we see this happen, it is most commonly caused by the homeowner’s dog frequently urinating on the AC coil. You see a lot when you’ve been in business this many years!
Q: Should I have the air conditioning fan running all the time?
A: Yes. Many people are concerned this will increase utility costs, however, there is more energy used to start and stop a system than to run one all the time. Also, starting and stopping the AC system frequently can wear faster.
Q: Why is steam coming off my air conditioning?
A: You will see this if you have a heat pump and this item is in defrost mode. This only happens in the winter. If you see steam or smoke at any other time, contact R.T. Moore.
Q: Why is my air conditioning thermostat blank?
A: There are many different reasons this can happen. Contact a heating and cooling expert to investigate this issue.
Q: Which way should the arrow on the air conditioning filter go?
A: Please see the print next to the filter. It generally indicates the air flow direction.
Q: My air conditioner won’t stop running. Why is my AC constantly on?
A: As noted in another question about air conditioning in this FAQ, you should keep your fan running at all times. If the actual air conditioner is running all of the time, that can be a problem. This can be caused by a few different things, ranging from the simple things (did you have your AC serviced this year – if not, it may be very dirty) to the complex. In this case, you should call our heating and cooling experts.
Q: Should I close my supply grills to make my air conditioning work better?
A: Closing off registers can negatively affect the load of the air conditioning system. In most situations the duct work is designed to meet the air conditioning system’s CFM requirement.
Q: Why is it so humid in my house? Is the air conditioning not working?
A: This can be caused by air infiltration in the Indiana summer or an improperly sized system not running long enough. If you have a humidifier be sure this is turned off in the summer. If that’s not the issue, contact us to take a look.
Q: Does it need to be a certain temperature before I run my air conditioning?
A: Running your air conditioning when it’s not warm enough outside can cause compressor damage. There are controls you can add to your air conditioner to allow it to run in cooler weather. Our heating and cooling experts can provide more information on these controls.
