How to Troubleshoot Common Air Conditioner Problems
Don’t panic if your air conditioner starts acting up. You can take a few steps to troubleshoot several common problems on your own.
Begin by checking your air filter. A clogged filter can impact the function of your unit and promote poor air quality. You can also check your outside condenser unit and remove leaves, dust, or debris from the fins.
Adjust your thermostat settings and ensure all vents are open to see if that improves the situation.
Finally, check your electrical panel to look for a tripped circuit breaker.
If these measures don’t provide any relief, call our friendly staff to schedule a repair service. We will give a full inspection of the system to find the source of the problem, along with the best recommendations for you to choose from, based on your ideal budget and priorities.
Signs You Need Air Conditioning Repair
Your air conditioner likely needs repair if you experience any of the following:
- Higher energy bills
- Strange noises from the unit
- Musty smell around the unit
- Warm air coming from the vent
- No air coming from the vent
The root cause of these issues can range from faulty mechanics to debris build-up on the evaporator and condensing coils. Depending on the age, size, and condition of the unit, the repair job can involve different steps.
At Trammell Heating and Air, we approach every repair with your comfort in mind. In addition to fixing any mechanical issue with your unit, we also use scientific testing to target the source of poor air quality and correct the problem directly.
How Much Does it Cost to Repair an Air Conditioner?

At Trammell Heating and Air, we will always be transparent about pricing. You will receive an honest, upfront estimate before we begin any service, and you’ll never be hit with surprise fees.

How to Prevent AC Problems
The best way to prevent costly problems is to perform routine air conditioner maintenance, ideally once or twice per year. Just like a car, your HVAC system is a machine that requires expert care to stay running at its peak performance.
Our experienced service technicians can test the basic functions of your air conditioner, inspect for refrigerant leaks from the evaporator coil, clean dirt build-up, and check for potential problems.
We suggest having maintenance checks before the start of each cooling season. This allows time to detect any issues that may impact your unit’s function and address them promptly.
Our professional maintenance services will keep more money in your pocket by avoiding the need for major repairs or a complete air conditioner replacement. It can also improve the efficiency of your air conditioner to reduce energy costs and extend the life of your home’s HVAC system.

Frequently Asked Questions
It depends on the severity of the problem. If your air conditioner is only blowing warm air, you can try resetting the thermostat or cleaning the air filter.
If that doesn’t work, you may need to call a professional to diagnose the problem. If your air conditioner is not blowing any air at all, you should shut it off immediately to prevent damage to the unit.
Here are some simple things you can do to diagnose an air conditioner problem:
- Check the air filter. A dirty air filter can restrict airflow and cause the air conditioner to work harder.
- Reset the thermostat. Sometimes a simple reset can fix a problem with the air conditioner.
- Check the breaker box. If the breaker for your air conditioner has tripped, reset it.
- Listen for strange noises. If you hear strange noises coming from your air conditioner, it could be a sign of a problem.
- Look for leaks. If you see any leaks around your air conditioner, it could be a sign of a more serious problem.
If you’ve checked all of these things and you’re still having problems with your air conditioner, you should call a professional to diagnose the problem.
Whether or not it’s worth repairing your air conditioner depends on a number of factors, including the age of the unit, the cost of the repair, your current energy bills, and the severity of the problem.
If your air conditioner is old and has a number of problems, it may be more cost-effective to replace it than to repair it.
However, if your air conditioner is relatively new and only has a minor problem, it may be worth repairing it.
It depends on the weather and your personal situation. If it’s a hot day and you don’t have another way to cool your home, then yes, it’s an emergency. You should call a professional immediately to get your air conditioner fixed.
However, if it’s a cool day or you have another way to cool your home, then it’s not an emergency. You can call a professional to fix your air conditioner at your convenience.
