Signs your AC needs to be repaired
You probably need an air conditioner repair if your unit:
- Isn’t turning on. This usually means a problem with the thermostat or a tripped circuit breaker. If you flip the breaker and it keeps tripping, don’t keep switching it back. You might overload your electrical panel.
- Is making odd sounds. A strange noise is the most obvious sign your AC needs a repair. If it’s a gurgling or hissing sound, you could have a refrigerant leak. A grinding or screeching noise usually means a problem with the air handler.
- Has weak airflow. If the air coming from your vents seems weaker than normal, you could have an issue with the blower motor or fan belt.
- Is covered in ice. Ice on your outdoor unit usually means you either have airflow issues or a refrigerant leak.
- Turns on and off a lot. Your AC should run for long periods of time. If it’s turning on and off sporadically, that could mean airflow issues or a problem with the thermostat. It could also mean you have an oversized unit that’s short cycling. In that case, you’re usually better off replacing your unit.
- Is surrounded by water. Water pooling around your unit typically means you have a clog in your condensate line, which is the pipe that removes condensation from your central air conditioner.

Is your ductless AC blowing hot air?
Try troubleshooting these common problems before calling a professional:
- Is your thermostat on “HEAT”? Make sure the switch is on “COOL”. It might sound obvious, but it could have accidentally gotten switched to “HEAT”.
- Is the air filter or condenser dirty? Your AC system needs good airflow to cool your home. If your indoor air filter is dirty, replace it with a new one. If your outdoor unit is covered with dirt or debris, gently clean it with a broom or garden hose.
- Is your outdoor unit getting power? If your outdoor unit isn’t getting any power, your AC will blow warm air when it runs. Check that the outdoor unit’s circuit breaker and emergency shut-off are switched to “ON”. If the circuit breaker keeps tripping, don’t keep switching it back. That means you have a bigger issue.
If your air conditioner is still blowing warm air, it’s time to call a professional to diagnose the problem.
