A/C problems? ICE Heating & Cooling is the leading air conditioning repair service. Whatever your air conditioning problem, don’t open the unit yourself. It can be dangerous, and you will invalidate the warranty if you try to carry out repairs without a license.

So what should you do?

Here are the most common A/C problems, how you can fix some of them, and how to avoid them happening again.

Common A/C Problems While Turning On And Off

If you’ve noticed that your air conditioning system is turning on and off frequently, it can be frustrating and may indicate a problem with your unit. In this article, we will discuss some of the common A/C problems and by addressing these issues, you can improve the efficiency and longevity of your air conditioning system.

A/C Running All The Time

An air conditioner that won’t turn off will obviously cost you a fortune in bills if you don’t get it seen to.

Try turning off the thermostat, and turning it back on. Does this solve the problem? If not, call us and we will send one of our A/C services sharp.

A/C Refusing To Turn On

This just won’t do in the sweltering summer. So try adjusting the thermostat. Does it work at a lower setting?

If you can’t get it working at all, it might be a problem with the circuit breaker, thermostat or incorrectly fitted wiring.

Unit Switching On And Off Over And Over Again

We call this “short cycling.” It might not be as annoying as an A/C unit that won’t switch on, but it will damage the compressor if you don’t get it seen to promptly. Try lowering the temperature. Any results?

Short cycling can happen when the air conditioner wasn’t properly measured for your home, and it’s too strong. Alternatively, it could be the filters or thermostat.

Circuit Breaker Keeps Tripping

Who installed your air conditioning? We’ll bet it wasn’t ICE Heating & Cooling because it indicates a poor installation job.

Alternatively, it may point to broken parts inside. Call us and schedule a proper AC installation job for yourself.

Common A/C Problems: Temperature

No Cool Airflow

Normally this is a tripped circuit breaker, a worn blower belt or low levels of refrigerant.

When you get a proper and regular A/C maintenance, this shouldn’t occur.

Hot Air Instead Of Cool Air

Hot air indicates the filters or compressor are dirty, or that there is an obstruction in the ductwork. It could also be a lack of refrigerant.

This is an easy one for our guys to fix. And if you schedule A/C maintenance from now on, it won’t happen again.

More Common A/C Problems


Blocked drainage pipes, a problem with the condensate pumps or deteriorating lines can all lead to leaks.

Other than cleaning up the outside, the only course of action you can take is simply to call us.

Condenser Coil Freezing

A freeze normally means something inside is dirty, whether that’s the air filter or condenser unit.

Again, all you can do is call a specialist in this instance and we’ll get you back on track.
