With summer approaching, 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 a number of things you can look for when considering 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 possible 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 sense a problem here you’ll want to call in trained professionals, like Air Houston Mechanical LLC in Huffman. This way, you’ll know for sure your system is properly repaired and running at its best. Not only will this ensure 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 are covered in dirt and grime you’ll see a noticeable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and potentially many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Air Houston Mechanical LLC can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to verify 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 look over the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and establish the system is wired properly. Another possible reason an air conditioner may cycle on and off frequently could be that your system isn’t the correct size for your home. If this is the case, you may also find that your home is too humid. Since this issue could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as qualified as the team at Air Houston Mechanical LLC.
Your system was made to take care of draining the condensation that it creates during the cooling process. Mold and mildew issues can manifest if the drain becomes congested, 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 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 832-777-1521.
