5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service05/21/2015With summer on the horizon, 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 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 annual 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 be a sign of leaking refrigerant. If you feel there’s a problem here you’ll want to call in qualified professionals, like Air Solutions, Inc in Groves. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and running at its best. Not only will this ensure the leak is corrected, but the refrigerant charge will be matched to the manufacturer’s exact specifications, ensuring the optimal operation. Inadequate maintenance When your air conditioner’s filters and coils build up with dirt and grime you’ll see a marked decrease in your system’s efficiency, and possibly many other issues if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Air Solutions, Inc can perform routine 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. 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 problem could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as experienced as the team at Air Solutions, Inc. Drainage Your system was designed 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 frequently. Your system will be functioning at its best during the summer. If you run into troubles or need to schedule routine, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Air Solutions, Inc in Groves at 409-962-2476 or schedule an air conditioner service appointment online.
