5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service Posted May 21, 2015 Cooling With summer approaching, 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 several 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 keep an eye out for these four likely problems if your air conditioner is acting up. 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 trained professionals, like Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc in Saint Petersburg. This way, you’ll know for sure your system is properly repaired and operating at its best. Not only will this ensure 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 are covered in 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. Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc can perform routine maintenance on your air conditioner to ensure it’s clean and running well. Cycling too frequently If you feel 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 check the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and confirm the system is wired properly. Another reason an air conditioner may 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 feel 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 Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc. Drainage Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that that forms during the cooling process. Mold and mildew issues 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 running at its finest during the summer.
