Does Your AC Need Recharging? Find Out Here!
Is your air conditioner malfunctioning? Is it not performing as efficiently as it used to? Well, there could be a number of reasons why your AC is under performing.
Any issues with the AC thermostat, electrical wiring or compressor lead to different problems such as AC unit breakdown, glitch in temperatures and lack of cool air.
Let’s understand what the issues of an AC recharge are and whether your AC needs a recharge.
What Is AC Recharging?
Every AC has a refrigeration system. This is a cylinder inside the AC unit that is filled with a liquid gas which makes the air turn cool when the AC is switched on.
AC recharge has nothing to do with electrical wiring or electrical recharge. It is simply the refilling of the coolant liquid into the refrigerant cylinders. If the refrigerant leaks, you would notice your unit throwing warm air.
Signs of AC Recharge
Vents Blow Out Room Temperature Air
While this happens mainly due to refrigerant leaks, it could also be due to a broken thermostat.
When it’s a refrigerant leak, you will notice that the air conditioning unit blows out cool air merely for a few seconds before the air warms up again.
On the other hand, if the unit frequently switches between cool and warm air, with a ‘clicking’ noise, it could indicate that thermostat is having trouble maintaining the temperature.
Dirty AC Filters
A clogged filter is breeding ground for bacteria and germs. Make sure that your filter is clean of all dust and debris.
A dirty AC filter also blocks the cool air from passing through the filter and vents. It is necessary to clean the filters frequently so that the cooling system of the AC is not affected.
Frozen AC Unit
Leaks from the refrigerant can cause malfunctions in the AC unit. Leaks are easy to detect as water leaks out of the AC and causes frost mildew to build on the motors and vents of the AC.

Keep in mind that a leak in the refrigerant and an AC recharge will require the expertise of professional experts.
