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

May 21, 2015

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 a number of 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 be mindful of these four possible problems if your air conditioner isn’t operating as it should.

  1. 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 experienced professionals, like Bell Air Conditioning Inc in Temple/Belton. 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.
  2. 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 potentially many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Bell Air Conditioning Inc can perform routine maintenance on your air conditioner to ensure 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 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 confirm the system is wired properly. Something else that may be causing an air conditioner to 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 feel 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 Bell Air Conditioning Inc.
  4. Drainage
    Your system was designed 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 often. Your system will be operating at its peak during the summer. If you run into problems or need to schedule regular, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Bell Air Conditioning Inc in Temple/Belton at 254-307-9572.
