Signs You Need AC Repair in Michigan
If you think you need AC repair, we encourage you to first check the filter and change it if necessary. A dirty air filter is one of the most common causes of air conditioner breakdowns. When the filter gets dirty and clogged, the unit simply can’t cool like it should.
If you’ve checked and changed the filter and the AC still isn’t working, it could be one of several common AC problems:
Low or leaking AC refrigerant. Refrigerant is the chemical that cools the air within the AC unit. If your air conditioner’s refrigerant is low, either it was filled improperly during installation or you’ve got a leak—which can be very dangerous. Schedule air conditioning repair as soon as possible.
Electronic failure. When the controls or sensors on your air conditioner malfunction, they can’t “tell” the AC unit—along with the condenser and fan—what to do. Luckily, electronics problems are typically a simple fix.
Fan or condenser malfunction. When your air conditioner’s fan breaks down, heat transfer suffers and sometimes causes compressor damage. The condenser, which is the outside unit, can fail due to a refrigerant leak, debris from damaged metal parts inside, or several other reasons. A broken condenser is a serious issue that should be addressed quickly.
Frozen AC coils. How do your air conditioner’s coils freeze even in the hot summer? Airflow. If the airflow is compromised, moisture stays on the AC coils and freezes. Frozen coils can result in compressor failure, reduced cooling capacity, and other problems. Avoiding frozen coils is another great reason to replace the air conditioner’s filters at least every three months!
Water leaks. Although a water leak is preferable to a refrigerant leak, it’s still a problem. Leaking water can indicate that your AC unit has a choked drain pipe, corroded condensate pan, or other problems. Call for repair before the leaking water starts to cause mold and mildew.
Continual on/off cycling. When your air conditioner keeps cycling off and on, it could be that its compressor or fan controls are damaged or worn down. Sometimes it’s an indication that the unit is too large for your home.
Overly noisy operation. Is your AC clanging, banging, clicking, or whining? There may be something broken inside that’s getting knocked around. It’s a good idea to get it repaired before it causes additional damage.
There are many problems that can occur with your air conditioning system. When a problem arises, it’s best to have it addressed as soon as possible so the problem doesn’t get worse!

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need repairs or should I replace my AC?
If your air conditioner is at least 10 years old, a replacement might save you money through improved technology and energy efficiency. If it’s at least 15 years old, you’re already pushing into the upper reaches of its life span and will need to replace it soon either way. If it’s newer than that, but prone to problems or doesn’t fit your home correctly, replacement may also be wise there.
How can I minimize the cost of repairs in the future?
Regular professional tune-ups will greatly reduce the frequency and severity of your repairs over the life of your air conditioner. Regular maintenance identifies the little problems that can turn into minor repairs, and it can prevent the minor repairs from turning into major repairs or replacement. It also improves energy efficiency and performance!
Is it okay that my AC is always running or does it need repairs?
Ideally, during the hottest days of the year, your AC will run constantly and keep your home comfortable but not cold; that’s because an AC is inefficient at starting but efficient once it starts. You only have a problem if it won’t turn off when the thermostat says it should, or if it cycles on and off constantly.
Can I do any repairs myself?
The majority of repairs you’d need to do on an air conditioner require specialized knowledge and tools to perform safely. Things that aren’t directly related to the main components of the air conditioner might be serviceable, though you won’t be identifying the root issue: You might be able to clear obstructions in your ducts, swap out dirty filters, or fix an obvious drainage issue that’s leading to freezing.
