5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service Posted May 21, 2015 With summer approaching, now is the time to think about any air conditioner service you might need to have performed to maintain 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 regular spring maintenance performed, you should still look out for these four likely problems if your air conditioner isn’t operating as it should. Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To This may be caused by leaking refrigerant. If you sense troubles here you’ll want to call in qualified professionals, like McFadden Heating & Cooling in Dresden. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and operating 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 likely many other issues if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. McFadden Heating & Cooling can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to make certain it’s clean and running well. Cycling too frequently If you feel that your air conditioner cycles on and off frequently, it could be a indication 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. Another possible 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 notice that your home is too humid. Since this issue could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as qualified as the team at McFadden Heating & Cooling. Drainage Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that it produces during the cooling process. Mold and mildew problems 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 functioning at its peak during the summer.
