5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service05/21/2015With summer approaching, now is the time to think about any air conditioner service you might need to have performed to keep your home comfortable. There are several 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 likely 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 feel there’s a problem here you’ll want to call in qualified professionals, like Colvin's Inc in Excelsior Springs. This way, you’ll be certain your system is properly repaired and operating at its best. Not only will this guarantee 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 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. Colvin's Inc can perform routine maintenance on your air conditioner to ensure it’s clean and running well. Cycling too frequently If it seems like your air conditioner cycles on and off frequently, it could be a signal it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and review 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 correct size for your home. If this is the case, you may also feel that your home is too humid. Since this problem could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as experienced as the team at Colvin's Inc. Drainage Your system was designed to take care of draining the condensation that that forms during the cooling process. Mold and mildew problems 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 frequently. Your system will be operating at its finest during the summer.
