1. Improper operation

One of the most common reasons why people have problems with their Seattle air conditioner is improper operation. To make sure that your air conditioner continues to run properly, close outside doors and windows while it’s in use. If you’re using a room air conditioner, isolate that room or group of rooms as much as possible from the rest of your home.

2. Frozen coils

Frozen coils could stop your Seattle air conditioner from operating properly. When coils freeze, it’s generally caused by problems with air flow, and lack of air flow is usually due to a dirty filter. To fix this, a calibration check is typically enough to solve the problem.

3. Faulty installation

Improper installation can lead to leaky ducts and low airflow. During installation, the technician must ensure that the refrigerant charge meets the manufacturer’s specifications. Your air conditioner’s performance will also suffer if the refrigerant isn’t charged properly.

4. Lack of maintenance

In order to keep your Seattle air conditioner operating the way it should, you must perform maintenance on it regularly. If the air filters and coils get dirty or clogged, your air conditioner will stop working properly, and the fans or compressor may fail.

5. Refrigerant leaks

If your Seattle air conditioner is leaking refrigerant, you should call a professional. They will locate the leaks, repair them, and properly charge the system with refrigerant.

6. Loud air conditioner noise

If your Seattle air conditioner is making a loud wailing noise, the fan belt could be out of place. On the other hand, the bearings in the motor might need lubrication or replacement.

7. Problems with the thermostat sensor

If you have a room air conditioner, there’s probably a thermostat sensor behind the control panel that measures the temperature of incoming air. A wire holds the sensor into place, and it should be near the evaporative coil. If it gets knocked out of place, your air conditioner might start acting strangely. Fix it by bending the wire and adjusting the sensor’s position.

8. Water leaks

If your Seattle air conditioner has drainage problems, it may leak water into your house. If you notice leaks, check to see if the condensate drain is blocked or if the condensation pan is rusted out. Drainage problems could be signs that the system is not leveled properly.
