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 keep your home comfortable. There are quite a few 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 regular spring maintenance performed, you should still be mindful of these four potential 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 qualified professionals, like Clean Air HVAC in Pacheco. 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 fixed, 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 build up with dirt and grime you’ll see a noticeable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and possibly many other issues if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Clean Air HVAC can perform regular maintenance on your air conditioner to verify it’s clean and running well. Cycling too frequently If you’re noticing 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 look over 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 proper size for your home. If this is the case, you may also feel that your home is too humid. Since this situation could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as experienced as the team at Clean Air HVAC. Drainage Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that it produces during the cooling process. Mold and mildew problems 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 running at its peak during the summer. If you run into issues or need to schedule annual, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Clean Air HVAC in Pacheco at 925-689-7017 or schedule an air conditioner service appointment online.
