5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service Posted May 21, 2015 With summer approaching, now is the time to think about any air conditioner service you might need to have performed to keep your home comfortable. There are quite a few 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 look out for these four possible 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 sense troubles here you’ll want to call in experienced professionals, like Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. in Northglenn. 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 most efficient operation. Inadequate maintenance When your air conditioner’s filters and coils are covered in dirt and grime you’ll see a marked decrease in your system’s efficiency, and likely many other issues if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to make certain 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 signal it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and look over 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 feel that your home is too humid. Since this problem could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as qualified as the team at Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.. Drainage Your system was designed to take care of draining the condensation that it creates 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 functioning at its finest during the summer.
