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 maintain your home’s comfort. There are a number of things you can look for when considering air conditioner service, but some problems are more common than others. Even if you recently had your annual spring maintenance performed, you should still keep an eye out for these four likely problems if your air conditioner isn’t running properly. Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To This may be caused by leaking refrigerant. If you sense a problem here you’ll want to call in qualified professionals, like C-N-O Comfort Zone in Saint Peters. 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 corrected, but the refrigerant charge will be matched to the manufacturer’s exact specifications, ensuring the peak 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 possibly many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. C-N-O Comfort Zone can perform routine 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 sign 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 proper size for your home. If this is the case, you may also notice that your home is too humid. Since this issue could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as qualified as the team at C-N-O Comfort Zone. Drainage Your system was made to take care of draining the condensation that it produces during the cooling process. Mold and mildew issues can manifest if the drain becomes plugged, 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 peak during the summer.
