5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service Posted May 21, 2015 With summer on the horizon, 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 contemplating 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 isn’t operating as it should. 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 Air Alliance Team in Saint Charles. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and operating 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 peak operation. Inadequate maintenance When your air conditioner’s filters and coils build up with dirt and grime you’ll see a notable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and likely many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Air Alliance Team can perform annual 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 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 ensure 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 experienced as the team at Air Alliance Team. Drainage Your system was designed to take care of draining the condensation that it creates during the cooling process. Mold and mildew troubles 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 often. Your system will be operating at its best during the summer. If you run into issues or need to schedule annual, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Air Alliance Team in Saint Charles at 636-229-1544.
