5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service

Cooling

With summer around the corner, 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 a number of things you can look for when considering air conditioner service, but some issues are more common than others.

Even if you recently had your annual spring maintenance performed, you should still keep an eye out for these four potential problems if your air conditioner is acting up.

  1. Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To
    This may be a sign of leaking refrigerant. If you sense troubles here you’ll want to call in qualified professionals, like True Heating & Cooling in Westminster. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and operating at its best. Not only will this make certain the leak is repaired, but the refrigerant charge will be matched to the manufacturer’s exact specifications, ensuring the most efficient operation.
  2. 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 potentially many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. True Heating & Cooling can perform regular maintenance on your air conditioner to verify it’s clean and running well.
  3. 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 look over the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and confirm 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 situation could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as experienced as the team at True Heating & Cooling.
  4. Drainage
    Your system was made to take care of draining the condensation that it creates 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 peak during the summer. If you run into issues or need to schedule regular, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call True Heating & Cooling in Westminster at 720-316-1898.
