5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service Posted May 21, 2015 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 several 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 isn’t operating as it should. Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To This may be a sign of leaking refrigerant. If you feel there’s a problem here you’ll want to call in trained professionals, like Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning in Derby. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and running at its best. Not only will this ensure the leak is corrected, 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 get clogged with dirt and grime you’ll see a marked decrease in your system’s efficiency, and likely many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning can perform annual 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 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 possible reason an air conditioner may 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 find 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 Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning. Drainage Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that it produces during the cooling process. Mold and mildew troubles can manifest if the drain becomes congested, 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 best during the summer.
