Common Problems With Air Conditioning Equipment

Uneven airflow

As they get older, your cooling equipment may not produce consistent air to cool your Quad Cities area home. You might also notice that it’s abnormally cold in one room while another room is very hot. Uneven airflow throughout your house is a sign that your unit might need to be repaired or replaced.


If your AC is leaking, it should be inspected immediately. If the moisture is water, this might just mean there’s a blockage creating condensation. However, if the unit is leaking freon, it could be a serious issue because freon is toxic.

Strange Noises

Units age just like other appliances. If your air conditioning unit makes strange noises – perhaps a squeaking or a grinding sound – several issues could be at play, and you should contact a professional HVAC repair technician in the Quad Cities.

System Won’t Turn On

If your cooling equipment isn’t turning on, there’s likely an issue with the thermostat not communicating with your unit either because your cooling system needs repairs or your thermostat is broken.

No Cold Air

An air conditioning unit is meant to blow cold air, so if your unit is only blowing warm air, there could be a problem with your system’s freon levels.

Unusual Smells

Strange smells coming from your unit could mean there’s a burned-out wire or mold inside your unit or the ductwork. If you smell something burnt or musty, it’s time to notify a technician. If left untreated, you and your family could get sick or even suffer from toxic fumes.

Short Cycling

If your system turns on and off abruptly, this is called “short-cycling.” Short cycling can be caused by an improperly sized unit, a clogged air filter or poor thermostat placement.

Should I Repair or Replace My Air Conditioning System?

How do you know if you should repair or replace your system?

You should repair your unit if:

It’s less than 10 years old and has had few, if any, repairs in the past.

You should replace the unit if:

There’s more than one component that needs replacing or if your unit is over 15 years old. While you can replace certain components to avoid buying a new unit, buying a new system is often more efficient. Purchasing multiple parts of a unit can end up costing the same amount or even more than a new unit.
