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

May 21, 2015

With summer on the horizon, now is the time to think about any air conditioner service you might need to have performed to maintain your home’s comfort. 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 keep an eye out for 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 indicate there is leaking refrigerant. If you feel there’s a problem here you’ll want to call in qualified professionals, like Cool Power LLC in Ronkonkoma. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and functioning at its best. Not only will this ensure the leak is corrected, 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 build up with dirt and grime you’ll see a noticeable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and potentially many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Cool Power LLC can perform regular maintenance on your air conditioner to make certain 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 check the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and establish the system is wired properly. Another possible 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 notice that your home is too humid. Since this situation could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as seasoned as the team at Cool Power LLC .
  4. Drainage
    Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that that forms during the cooling process. Mold and mildew issues 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 functioning at its finest during the summer. If you run into issues or need to schedule routine, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Cool Power LLC in Ronkonkoma at 631-246-4029.
