5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service Posted May 21, 2015 With summer around the corner, now is the time to think about any air conditioner service you might need to have performed to keep your home comfortable. There are several things you can look for when thinking about air conditioner service, but some problems are more common than others. Even if you recently had your annual spring maintenance performed, you should still look out for these four possible problems if your air conditioner isn’t running properly. 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 Stieferman Heating Company Inc in Jefferson City. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and functioning 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 build up with dirt and grime you’ll see a noticeable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and possibly many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Stieferman Heating Company Inc can perform regular maintenance on your air conditioner to ensure 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 indication 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. Something else that may be causing an air conditioner to 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 problem could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as qualified as the team at Stieferman Heating Company 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 operating at its finest during the summer.
