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 several 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 be mindful of these four likely problems if your air conditioner is acting up.
- Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To
This may be caused by leaking refrigerant. If you sense troubles here you’ll want to call in trained professionals, like Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc in Mobile. This way, you’ll be certain your system is properly repaired and functioning at its best. Not only will this ensure 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 build up with dirt and grime you’ll see a marked decrease in your system’s efficiency, and possibly many other issues if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to ensure 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 sign 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 possible 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 issue could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as seasoned as the team at Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc.
Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that that forms during the cooling process. Mold and mildew issues 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 regularly. Your system will be running at its best during the summer. If you run into issues or need to schedule annual, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc in Mobile at 251-471-2674.
