5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service Posted May 21, 2015 Cooling With summer around the corner, now is the time to think about any air conditioner service you might need to have performed to keep your home comfortable. There are quite a few things you can look for when thinking about air conditioner service, but some issues are more common than others. Even if you recently had your regular spring maintenance performed, you should still be mindful of these four likely problems if your air conditioner is acting up. Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To This may be a sign of leaking refrigerant. If you sense a problem here you’ll want to call in trained professionals, like Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling in Liberty and the Kansas City Metro Area. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and operating at its best. Not only will this ensure the leak is repaired, but the refrigerant charge will be matched to the manufacturer’s exact specifications, ensuring the most efficient operation. Inadequate maintenance When your air conditioner’s filters and coils build up with dirt and grime you’ll see a notable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and possibly many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling can perform routine maintenance on your air conditioner to make certain it’s clean and running well. Cycling too frequently If it seems like your air conditioner cycles on and off frequently, it could be a sign it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and check the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and establish the system is wired properly. Something else that may be causing an air conditioner to cycle on and off frequently could be that your system isn’t the correct size for your home. If this is the case, you may also feel that your home is too humid. Since this issue could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as seasoned as the team at Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling. Drainage Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that that forms during the cooling process. Mold and mildew troubles can manifest if the drain becomes clogged, and this can lead to bigger problems. Even if your air conditioner is newer, it can develop problems when it’s used often. Your system will be running at its peak during the summer.
