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 preserve your home’s comfort. There are a number of things you can look for when contemplating 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 is acting up. 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 Anderson Heating & A/C in Carson City. This way, you’ll be certain your system is properly repaired and functioning at its best. Not only will this make certain 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 build up with dirt and grime you’ll see a notable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and likely many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Anderson Heating & A/C can perform regular maintenance on your air conditioner to make certain 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 signal it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and check the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and establish 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 appropriate size for your home. If this is the case, you may also find 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 Anderson Heating & A/C. Drainage Your system was made to take care of draining the condensation that it creates 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 often. Your system will be operating at its peak during the summer. If you run into troubles or need to schedule regular, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Anderson Heating & A/C in Carson City at 775-230-7628.
