5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service Posted May 21, 2015 Cooling With summer approaching, 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 a number of 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 annual spring maintenance performed, you should still keep an eye out for these four likely problems if your air conditioner is acting up. Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To This may be caused by leaking refrigerant. If you feel there’s a problem here you’ll want to call in qualified professionals, like Cooler Tymes LLC in Litchfield Park. This way, you’ll know for sure your system is properly repaired and functioning 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 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 potentially many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Cooler Tymes LLC can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to verify 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 look over the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and ensure the system is wired properly. Another reason an air conditioner may cycle on and off frequently could be that your system isn’t the proper size for your home. If this is the case, you may also find that your home is too humid. Since this issue could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as experienced as the team at Cooler Tymes LLC. Drainage Your system was made to take care of draining the condensation that that forms during the cooling process. Mold and mildew issues 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 regularly. Your system will be operating at its finest during the summer.
