If your air conditioner is tripping the switch in your switchboard then this is an indication the air conditioner is faulty and needs a repair.
If your air conditioner is leaking water, this can mean that it’s forming ice inside the unit because the system can’t breathe as there’s a blockage, or there may be a problem with your drainage system. This is a common problem when regular annual servicing has not been conducted on the unit.
If your air conditioner is leaking refrigerant call an authorised technician immediately. Air conditioner refrigerant is toxic, very hazardous to the environment, and can be expensive to replace. Split air conditioning units are not designed to ‘lose gas’ like cars, if your air conditioning unit is leaking gas it needs a part repaired or replaced before it can be re-gassed.
If your air conditioner is emitting bad smells for long periods of time, the cause could be anything from a blocked drainage pipe, to a dead rodent or bugs inside your unit. In both cases, you’ll need to get a technician to check your unit and conduct any split system air conditioning repairs required.
