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 preserve your home’s comfort. There are quite a few things you can look for when thinking about air conditioner service, but some problems are more common than others. Even if you recently had your regular spring maintenance performed, you should still keep an eye out for these four possible problems if your air conditioner isn’t operating as it should. 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 qualified professionals, like Air Temperature Control in Macon. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and running at its best. Not only will this ensure the leak is fixed, but the refrigerant charge will be matched to the manufacturer’s exact specifications, ensuring the peak operation. Inadequate maintenance When your air conditioner’s filters and coils are covered in dirt and grime you’ll see a noticeable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and likely many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Air Temperature Control can perform routine maintenance on your air conditioner to ensure it’s clean and running well. Cycling too frequently If you’re noticing that your air conditioner cycles on and off frequently, it could be a signal it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and check the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and confirm 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 situation could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as seasoned as the team at Air Temperature Control. Drainage Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that it creates during the cooling process. Mold and mildew issues can manifest if the drain becomes plugged, and this can lead to bigger problems. Even if your air conditioner is newer, it can develop problems when it’s used regularly. Your system will be running at its best during the summer.
