5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service Posted May 21, 2015 Cooling With summer around the corner, 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 several things you can look for when thinking about 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 likely problems if your air conditioner is acting up. Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To This may indicate there is leaking refrigerant. If you sense a problem here you’ll want to call in trained professionals, like US Air Heating and Cooling in Rock Hill. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and functioning at its best. Not only will this guarantee 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 get clogged with dirt and grime you’ll see a notable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and likely many other issues if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. US Air Heating and Cooling can perform regular 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 signal it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and check the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and ensure the system is wired properly. Another reason an air conditioner may 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 find that your home is too humid. Since this situation could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as experienced as the team at US Air Heating and Cooling. Drainage 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 often. Your system will be running at its best during the summer. If you run into issues or need to schedule regular, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call US Air Heating and Cooling in Rock Hill at 803-980-4328.
