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 contemplating air conditioner service, but some issues are more common than others.
Even if you recently had your yearly spring maintenance performed, you should still be mindful of 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 feel there’s a problem here you’ll want to call in experienced professionals, like Anderson Heating & A/C in Carson City. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and functioning at its best. Not only will this guarantee the leak is repaired, 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 get clogged with dirt and grime you’ll see a marked decrease in your system’s efficiency, and likely many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Anderson Heating & A/C can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to verify 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 review the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and establish 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 correct size for your home. If this is the case, you may also feel that your home is too humid. Since this situation could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as qualified as the team at Anderson Heating & A/C.
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 frequently. Your system will be functioning at its peak during the summer. If you run into problems or need to schedule annual, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Anderson Heating & A/C in Carson City at 775-230-7628.
