5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service Posted May 21, 2015 Cooling With summer on the horizon, now is the time to think about any air conditioner service you might need to have performed to keep your home comfortable. 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 regular spring maintenance performed, you should still keep an eye out for these four potential problems if your air conditioner is acting up. Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To This may be a sign of leaking refrigerant. If you sense a problem here you’ll want to call in experienced professionals, like Accurate Heating & Cooling LLC in Pekin. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and running 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 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. Accurate Heating & Cooling LLC 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 sign it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and check the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and confirm 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 feel that your home is too humid. Since this problem could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as experienced as the team at Accurate Heating & Cooling LLC. 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 congested, 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 running at its best during the summer.
