Top 7 Most Common Summer AC Problems

With the onset of summer, the usage of air conditioning mechanisms rises; and with that rises the various issues one faces with their air conditioners.

Top 7 Most Common Summer AC Problems

In this very article, we’re going to talk about the top 7 most common summer AC problems one may face and the possible remedies for the same (that can save you from sweating!).

  • Blocked air filters

Clogged air filter/air drain is one of the most common problems one faces with air conditioning mechanisms. It happens with continued use of the air conditioner without its cleansing and maintenance. However, the problems arising due to this perfunctory behavior can be major, from system failures to meager cooling. 


  • Keep a timely check on the working unit.

  • Clean the air filters quarterly in a routine manner.

  • Contact the Ac Repair in Delhi technician for aid at the very start of the issue to avoid ‘breaking’ of the ac.

  • AC blowing warm air

This is also a frequent issue one faces with ACs when their ‘cool air’ throwing AC starts blowing ‘warm air’. Now, this is a condition that can arise out of nowhere due to some real technical failures like a broken compressor or a disjunction between the compressor and the functional unit.


  • Early detection is necessary.

  • Avoid using personal fillers to tackle the situation as this might worsen the health of the AC.

  • Consult a specialist as soon as possible to detect the problem and repair the AC.

  • AC is too noisy!

Many times people encounter strange, unwanted, and unwelcomed noises coming from their ACs. These noises should be taken under consideration with an alert behavior as these are the indications that something is not right with the cooling unit. 


  • The issue should not be overheard.

  • A fine checking of the whole apparatus including duct vents, fans, etc must be carried out.

  • Checking then must be followed by proper cleaning of the apparatus.

  • AC resists turning on

Sometimes it may happen that you come home to relax, try to turn the AC on but it resists turning on. A more conundrum situation arises when the AC turns on and off and on and loops again and again. This can be really a frustrating situation to happen. However, there can be multiple reasons for the issue but a tripping failure can be the leading one.


  • Check the connections.

  • Make sure the electrical breaker is working properly.

  • Turn the electric breaker switch on and off several times, if the condition doesn’t improve consult the specialist.

  • Dead batteries

It may be possible at times when AC is not able to perform efficiently. This can happen when the thermostat is not getting the amount of energy it requires to maintain the proper functioning of the AC; this can result when the batteries are not working properly or when their circuits break. This is again one common problem faced many times.


  • Troubleshooting the battery should be carried out.

  • An Ac Repair in Gurgaon technician must be consulted in case of circuit/thermostat failure.

  • Replace the batteries (however not frugal), if necessary. 

  • Refrigerant leakage

People are often found complaining regarding refrigerant leaks. Refrigerant leak in layman language can be understood as the ‘leakage of the cooling part’ of your AC. Now there are several reasons, due to which this problem can arise like an improper installation, wear and tear of the unit, internal failure, etc.


  • Make the installation firm and technically sound.

  • Keep a check on the unit for leakage.

  • Bring in note signs like AC taking too long to cool the area etc and take measures for it.

  • Defunct AC capacitor

AC capacitor is one of the most important components of an HVAC; a capacitor failure can take the device to a halt.  An AC capacitor is the core element that circulates the coil and helps in circulating the energy that is required for the AC to function. If the AC stops working or is showing irregular characteristics this could be the reason. A capacitor can fail to function because of many reasons like Overheating.


  • Restore the capacitor through repair.

  • Replace the faulty capacitor.

  • Consult a technician.
