With summer around the corner, 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 contemplating air conditioner service, but some problems are more common than others.
Even if you recently had your annual spring maintenance performed, you should still look out for these four likely problems if your air conditioner is acting up.
- Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To
This may indicate there is leaking refrigerant. If you sense troubles here you’ll want to call in qualified professionals, like Assured Appliance and Heating & Air in Genoa. This way, you’ll be certain your system is properly repaired and operating at its best. Not only will this make certain the leak is fixed, but the refrigerant charge will be matched to the manufacturer’s exact specifications, ensuring the optimal operation.
- Inadequate maintenance
When your air conditioner’s filters and coils get clogged with dirt and grime you’ll see a marked decrease in your system’s efficiency, and likely many other issues if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Assured Appliance and Heating & Air can perform annual 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 indication it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and check 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 appropriate size for your home. If this is the case, you may also find that your home is too humid. Since this situation could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as experienced as the team at Assured Appliance and Heating & Air.
Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that it creates 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 regularly. Your system will be functioning at its best during the summer.
