A faulty air conditioner is not a problem any home or business wants on their hands, especially in hot summer months. Faulty air conditioners have the potential to cost you extra money, create hazardous damage to the environment and can even have an effect on health problems.

The best way to make sure your air conditioner works to its optimum level for many years to come is to have it annually serviced, maintain your air conditioner yourself, and keep the filters clean. However, you should always be aware of signs that you need an air conditioning repair in order to stop wasting your money on energy bills and to get the most out of your investment.

An important tip is to know the warning signs below, so you can seek professional help before you need to replace your cooling system.

Limited Temperature Control

If you notice the room temperature suddenly change, this may be a sign that your cooling system is experiencing difficulties. If your air conditioner is old, it may need replacing. However, it may be that your system is struggling because of factors that you can control. Check that your outside unit (if you have one) is not being encroached upon by plants.

Try to use your air conditioning unit in conjunction with other temperature control tools- such as blinds, curtains and windows. If your air conditioner is still not working to its optimum, you may need an air conditioning repair in Melbourne.

Strange Or Loud Sounds

If your air conditioning unit is making loud noises it is likely to need a service. Loud or grating noises can make your air conditioner uncomfortable to use and can be hazardous to the health of you and your family members. Failure to service the unit could end in costly repairs or replacement, so ensure you call a professional as soon as you can.

Strange Smells

Not only do strange or strong smells coming from your air conditioning unit make you not want to use it- smells are a sign of definite disrepair. Generally odours coming from your air conditioner mean hat wire insulation has burnt out. If your air conditioner is under warranty, replacing these parts will come at very little cost. Regardless, an air conditioner that is creating smells is unusable so it’s worth the air conditioner repair.


Moisture around your air-conditioning unit is a sign of a problem with draining. Leaks cannot only cause serious problems for your air-conditioners; they can ruin surrounding furniture and attract pests. For any air conditioning repairs, a professional should see to leaking units immediately

Many homeowners and business owners fail to call professional air conditioning services in time for easy repairs. Whilst you may be worried about a large bill, faulty air conditioners are often uncomfortable to use, and cost you and the environment more on your energy bill. If your air conditioner is under warranty, repairs are often relatively cheap. Air conditioning repairs can also be the more cost effective long-term solution.
