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 preserve your home’s comfort. 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 be mindful of these four possible problems if your air conditioner isn’t operating as it should. 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 Belton. This way, you’ll be certain your system is properly repaired and functioning 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 peak operation. Inadequate maintenance When your air conditioner’s filters and coils get clogged 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. Bell Air Conditioning Inc. can perform routine maintenance on your air conditioner to verify 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 ensure 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 appropriate 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 Bell Air Conditioning Inc.. Drainage Your system was designed to take care of draining the condensation that it produces 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 peak during the summer.
