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 keep your home comfortable. There are a number of 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 isn’t running properly. Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To This may be caused by leaking refrigerant. If you feel there’s a problem here you’ll want to call in trained professionals, like Langford Cooling in Tampa Bay. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and operating at its best. Not only will this guarantee the leak is repaired, 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 get clogged with dirt and grime you’ll see a noticeable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and possibly many other issues if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Langford Cooling 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 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. 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 Langford Cooling. Drainage Your system was designed to take care of draining the condensation that it produces during the cooling process. Mold and mildew troubles 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 frequently. Your system will be running at its best during the summer.
