5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service05/21/2015With 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 several things you can look for when thinking about air conditioner service, but some issues are more common than others. Even if you recently had your yearly spring maintenance performed, you should still look out for these four likely problems if your air conditioner isn’t running properly. Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To This may indicate there is leaking refrigerant. If you feel there’s a problem here you’ll want to call in qualified professionals, like Brian’s Heating & Cooling, Inc. in Madera. 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 corrected, 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 build up with dirt and grime you’ll see a notable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and potentially many other issues if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Brian’s Heating & Cooling, Inc. can perform regular 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 signal it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and review the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and confirm 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 feel that your home is too humid. Since this problem could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as seasoned as the team at Brian’s Heating & Cooling, Inc.. Drainage Your system was designed to take care of draining the condensation that that forms 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 frequently. Your system will be functioning at its best during the summer.
