5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service05/21/2015With summer approaching, 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 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 be mindful of these four possible 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 Econo Air in Brea. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and operating 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 most efficient operation. Inadequate maintenance When your air conditioner’s filters and coils build up with dirt and grime you’ll see a notable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and likely many other issues if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Econo Air can perform regular maintenance on your air conditioner to verify 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 look over the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and establish 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 problem could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as seasoned as the team at Econo Air. Drainage Your system was designed 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 frequently. Your system will be operating at its finest during the summer.
