If your air conditioning system is acting up, it might be time to call a professional to repair it. Common problems include clogged condensate drain, leaking ducts, and frozen evaporator coil. To determine what’s causing your unit to malfunction, you should visit an air conditioning repair service. The problem could be easily fixed by moving the obstruction blocking the airflow.

Clogged condensate drain
The condensate drain can become clogged over time. You can remove the blockage using a flexible plastic tubing or a plumber’s snake. Once the drain is clear, pour a solution of 1/4 cup vinegar into one gallon of warm water to clean it. Be sure to dry the area around the unit thoroughly afterward, as moisture can cause mold and bacteria to grow.

Leaking ducts
The first thing you should do if you suspect that you’ve got a leaking duct is to inspect the piping and ductwork for any signs of leaks. If there are any, you should try to seal them using mastic or foil-faced tape. A fog machine is an excellent way to pinpoint the leak. Leaking ducts can lead to back-drafting, affecting other areas of your home.

Freezing evaporator coil
One of the most common problems with air conditioners is that the evaporator coil freezes. This happens when the evaporator coil doesn’t get enough airflow. There can be several reasons for this problem, including a clogged condensate drain pan or a leaky refrigerant line. Thankfully, a few home remedies help you solve the problem before calling a technician.

Screaming noises
Screaming noises from your air conditioning unit are usually a warning sign that something is wrong with your team. While these noises aren’t necessarily dangerous, they should be investigated. If left unchecked, they could lead to even more damage. This article will discuss some of the most common causes of screaming noises from air conditioning units. Listed below are a few possible reasons.

Dirty air
When the air filter is dirty, your AC unit won’t be able to draw enough cold air through it, reducing the amount of cool air it can push out. This could result in a frozen evaporator coil and poor indoor air quality, increasing your energy bill. Clean your air filter monthly, especially if you have pets or suffer from allergies.

Clogged drain pan
If you notice condensate coming out of your AC unit, there may be a plugged drain line or clogged drain pan. Check the drain line and drain pan by threading a garden hose down the pipe toward the house’s exterior. Do not run the hose towards the air handler or indoor HVAC unit. Turn on the hose to flush any clogs.

Refrigerant leaks
If you’re looking to save money on your electricity bills and prevent discomfort in your home, refrigerant leaks should be on your list of things to check. A leak can occur for many reasons, from corrosion to aging. No matter the cause, getting your AC checked as soon as possible is essential to avoid costly repairs. Listed below are some signs that your AC is leaking.
