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 a number of things you can look for when considering air conditioner service, but some problems are more common than others.
Even if you recently had your yearly spring maintenance performed, you should still look out for 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 a problem here you’ll want to call in experienced professionals, like Clean Air HVAC in Pacheco. This way, you’ll be 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 peak operation.
- Inadequate maintenance
When your air conditioner’s filters and coils get clogged with dirt and grime you’ll see a noticeable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and likely many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Clean Air HVAC 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 sign it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and look over the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and ensure the system is wired properly. Another 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 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 Clean Air HVAC.
Your system was made to take care of draining the condensation that it creates during the cooling process. Mold and mildew problems can manifest if the drain becomes clogged, and this can lead to bigger problems.
Even if your air conditioner is newer, it can develop problems when it’s used regularly. Your system will be functioning at its finest during the summer. If you run into troubles or need to schedule annual, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Clean Air HVAC in Pacheco at 925-233-6238.
