5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service Posted May 21, 2015 With summer on the horizon, 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 issues are more common than others. Even if you recently had your regular spring maintenance performed, you should still be mindful of these four likely problems if your air conditioner isn’t running properly. 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 qualified professionals, like D & D Heating & AC in Brighton. 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 optimal 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 possibly many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. D & D Heating & AC 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 look over the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and establish 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 notice that your home is too humid. Since this issue could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as experienced as the team at D & D Heating & AC. Drainage Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that that forms 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 running at its finest during the summer.
