5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service05/21/2015With 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 yearly spring maintenance performed, you should still keep an eye out for these four potential problems if your air conditioner is acting up. 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 qualified professionals, like Alltemp Comfort Services LLC in the Midlands. This way, you’ll know for sure your system is properly repaired and operating at its best. Not only will this guarantee the leak is corrected, but the refrigerant charge will be matched to the manufacturer’s exact specifications, ensuring the most efficient operation. 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 potentially many other issues if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Alltemp Comfort Services LLC can perform routine maintenance on your air conditioner to make certain 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 indication it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and check 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 correct 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 experienced as the team at Alltemp Comfort Services LLC. Drainage Your system was made to take care of draining the condensation that that forms during the cooling process. Mold and mildew issues can manifest if the drain becomes congested, 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. If you run into troubles or need to schedule routine, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Alltemp Comfort Services LLC in the Midlands at 803-220-0753 or schedule an air conditioner service appointment online.
