5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service Posted May 21, 2015 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 quite a few things you can look for when considering air conditioner service, but some problems are more common than others. Even if you recently had your yearly spring maintenance performed, you should still keep an eye out for these four potential problems if your air conditioner isn’t operating as it should. 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 experienced professionals, like Air Houston Mechanical LLC in Huffman. This way, you’ll be certain your system is properly repaired and running at its best. Not only will this guarantee the leak is corrected, 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 get clogged with dirt and grime you’ll see a noticeable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and likely many other issues if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Air Houston Mechanical LLC can perform routine maintenance on your air conditioner to verify 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 signal it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and check the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and ensure the system is wired properly. Another 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 situation could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as qualified as the team at Air Houston Mechanical LLC. Drainage Your system was made to take care of draining the condensation that that forms 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 often. Your system will be functioning at its peak during the summer. If you run into troubles or need to schedule routine, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Air Houston Mechanical LLC in Huffman at 832-224-3887.
