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 maintain your home’s comfort. There are several things you can look for when considering air conditioner service, but some problems are more common than others. Even if you recently had your regular 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 be a sign of leaking refrigerant. If you feel there’s a problem here you’ll want to call in qualified professionals, like Brandon Heating and Plumbing (1998) Ltd. in Brandon. This way, you’ll be sure 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 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 potentially many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Brandon Heating and Plumbing (1998) Ltd. can perform routine 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 indication 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 possible 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 problem could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as experienced as the team at Brandon Heating and Plumbing (1998) Ltd.. Drainage Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that it produces during the cooling process. Mold and mildew problems 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 functioning at its peak during the summer.
