In rare cases, an unfortunate AC breakdown may occur right out of the blue. However, there are usually some indications that trouble is brewing in the unit.
Some of the most common indications that an AC is malfunctioning include:
- Strange noises, such as grinding, whirring, banging, crackling, or clicking
- Bad odors of burning metal, musty mildew, or melting plastic
- A large presence of water or liquid leaking from the AC’s base
- Too much condensation gathering on the vents
- Visible signs of mold growing on the AC
Why Is My AC Leaking?
One of the most alarming scenes to discover is lots of water pooling at the base of an AC unit. Many residents are not aware that their systems have anything to do with water, and the leak may come as a shock. The trouble is that there could be multiple problems causing this unpleasant situation.
For example, if the drainpipe is clogged from dust over time, this could become clogged, causing water to leak out. Another issue would be that of a broken condensate pan, which has gotten too full from accumulated moisture and debris. A more troublesome issue would be if the refrigerant is leaking. While water leakage is not ideal, a refrigerant leak can be more harmful when people are exposed to it. In any of these situations, it is important to speak to a professional right away.

Once it is clear that the unit needs to be repaired, the first step is arranging a dedicated assessment. There may just be one giant problem, or there may be several minor ones causing overall havoc.
