According to Popular Mechanics magazine*, the following is a list of typical air conditioning issues when a professional is needed for the job:
“Central air-conditioning systems are fairly complex but, fortunately, fairly reliable. Beyond the simple power outage or clogged condensate drain line, more serious problems are best left to experienced, licensed technicians. Signs that should lead you to call for service include:
- Unit running but no cool air coming out. If the appliance cools intermittently, it usually points to a problem with the refrigerant and may mean the system needs to be recharged.
- Odd sounds coming from the condenser/ compressor unit. Turn off the unit and call for service.
- The system doesn’t come on at all. First check the obvious culprits–that the thermostat is set to cool and that the appliance’s circuit breaker is in the “On” position. Likewise, check all other system switches or disconnects. If these aren’t the problem, make sure the air-conditioner is off and call for help.
- Any significant leak or a dripping circuit breaker. This should be dealt with immediately by a professional. Turn off the unit and make the call.”
