With summer on the horizon, 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 thinking about 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 a sign of leaking refrigerant. If you feel there’s a problem here you’ll want to call in experienced professionals, like Evenaire Heating & Air Conditioning in Pflugerville. This way, you’ll know for sure 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 optimal 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 potentially many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Evenaire Heating & Air Conditioning can perform regular 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 check 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 proper size for your home. If this is the case, you may also find 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 Evenaire Heating & Air Conditioning.
Your system was designed to take care of draining the condensation that it creates during the cooling process. Mold and mildew troubles can manifest if the drain becomes plugged, 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 running at its peak during the summer. If you run into issues or need to schedule regular, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Evenaire Heating & Air Conditioning in Pflugerville at 512-355-1482.
