5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service Posted May 21, 2015 Cooling With 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 thinking about air conditioner service, but some problems are more common than others. Even if you recently had your yearly spring maintenance performed, you should still look out for these four potential problems if your air conditioner isn’t running properly. Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To This may indicate there is leaking refrigerant. If you sense troubles here you’ll want to call in trained professionals, like Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning in Bossier City. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and operating at its best. Not only will this guarantee 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 are covered in dirt and grime you’ll see a notable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and possibly many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to make certain 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 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. Another 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 notice that your home is too humid. Since this problem could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as seasoned as the team at Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning. Drainage Your system was designed to take care of draining the condensation that it creates during the cooling process. Mold and mildew problems 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 regularly. Your system will be running at its finest during the summer. If you run into issues or need to schedule routine, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning in Bossier City at 800-COOLING.
