5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service Posted May 21, 2015 With summer approaching, now is the time to think about any air conditioner service you might need to have performed to keep your home comfortable. There are a number of things you can look for when contemplating air conditioner service, but some issues 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 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 experienced professionals, like Summit Air Conditioning Inc in West Palm Beach. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and functioning at its best. Not only will this make certain the leak is fixed, 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 marked decrease in your system’s efficiency, and possibly many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Summit Air Conditioning Inc can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to ensure it’s clean and running well. 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 confirm 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 problem could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as qualified as the team at Summit Air Conditioning Inc. Drainage Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that that forms during the cooling process. Mold and mildew problems 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 regularly. Your system will be functioning at its peak during the summer. If you run into problems or need to schedule regular, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Summit Air Conditioning Inc in West Palm Beach at 561-404-4520.
