5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service05/21/2015With summer on the horizon, 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 a number of 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 regular spring maintenance performed, you should still keep an eye out for these four potential 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 a problem here you’ll want to call in trained professionals, like Point Heating & Cooling in Plover. This way, you’ll be certain your system is properly repaired and running at its best. Not only will this ensure the leak is repaired, 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 noticeable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and potentially many other issues if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Point Heating & Cooling can perform routine maintenance on your air conditioner to ensure 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 indication 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. Something else that may be causing an air conditioner to 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 issue could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as seasoned as the team at Point Heating & Cooling. Drainage Your system was designed to take care of draining the condensation that it produces during the cooling process. Mold and mildew problems can manifest if the drain becomes clogged, 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 operating at its best during the summer.
