Air Conditioner Service

5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service

With summer around the corner, now is the time to think about any air conditioner service you might need to have performed to preserve your home’s comfort. There are quite a few 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 likely problems if your air conditioner isn’t running properly.

  1. Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To
    This may be a sign of leaking refrigerant. If you sense a problem here you’ll want to call in qualified professionals, like PWA Heating & Cooling Inc in Plainfield. This way, you’ll be sure 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 peak operation.
  2. 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 likely many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. PWA Heating & Cooling Inc can perform routine maintenance on your air conditioner to verify it’s clean and running well.
  3. 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 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 appropriate size for your home. If this is the case, you may also feel that your home is too humid. Since this issue could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as qualified as the team at PWA Heating & Cooling Inc.
  4. Drainage
    Your system was made 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 finest during the summer.
