5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service Posted May 21, 2015 Cooling With summer around the corner, now is the time to think about any air conditioner service you might need to have performed to keep your home comfortable. There are quite a few things you can look for when considering air conditioner service, but some problems are more common than others. Even if you recently had your annual spring maintenance performed, you should still look out for these four potential 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 Thornberry Bros Inc in Winchester. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and functioning at its best. Not only will this make certain the leak is corrected, 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 noticeable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and potentially many other issues if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Thornberry Bros Inc can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to make certain it’s clean and running well. Cycling too frequently If you’re noticing that your air conditioner cycles on and off frequently, it could be a signal it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and look over 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 Thornberry Bros Inc. Drainage Your system was made to take care of draining the condensation that it creates 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 frequently. Your system will be running at its best during the summer.
