Signs That Your Air Conditioner Is Broken

Broken AC

As the weather heats up, having an air conditioning system in your home can help to keep you comfortable. Unfortunately, all air conditioning systems will experience a malfunction from time to time. Knowing the top signs that your air conditioner has broken is vital. It will help you to get the problem fixed before there is more damage.

It’s Blowing Warm Air

The most obvious sign that your air conditioner has broken is when it starts blowing out warm air. This issue could be due to several factors. These include a low refrigerant level, a bad compressor, or a faulty condenser. It’s best to call in an HVAC professional when you first notice the problem. They can get it fixed before it becomes a more expensive repair.

Poor Airflow

When it seems like your air conditioner isn’t forcing enough air into your home, it’s time to call an HVAC pro. Poor airflow means that your air conditioner isn’t working as it should. This could be from a clogged air filter, broken motor, or another HVAC-related issue. Unfortunately, running your air conditioner in this state can cause it to always run. This is because it can’t reach your desired temperature. This will, in turn, cause your energy bills to skyrocket.

Unusual Noises

It’s normal to hear your air conditioning system kick on and off. If you notice an unusual noise coming from your air conditioner, something has broken. You need to get your system evaluated to determine the source of the noise so that they can fix it.

High Indoor Humidity

When humidity levels get high, it can lead to an uncomfortable home for your whole family. If you feel clammy and sticky while in your home, that can be a sign that something is amiss with your HVAC system. As your air conditioner works, it removes humidity from the air. When something has broken, your HVAC system can’t remove the moisture from the air inside of your home.


If you notice a puddle underneath your air conditioning system, then it’s a sign of a problem. That leak could be a backup of water, or it could be refrigerant. It’s best to talk with an HVAC professional to determine the source of the leak. From there, they can fix the leak and tell you of any further steps you need to take.
