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 problems are more common than others. Even if you recently had your annual spring maintenance performed, you should still be mindful of these four likely problems if your air conditioner isn’t operating as it should. Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To This may indicate there is leaking refrigerant. If you sense a problem here you’ll want to call in trained professionals, like ACS Heating and Air Conditioning in Tucker. This way, you’ll know for sure your system is properly repaired and running 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 are covered in dirt and grime you’ll see a marked decrease in your system’s efficiency, and possibly many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. ACS Heating and Air Conditioning 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 indication it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and look over 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 find that your home is too humid. Since this problem could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as experienced as the team at ACS Heating and Air Conditioning. Drainage Your system was designed to take care of draining the condensation that it produces during the cooling process. Mold and mildew troubles 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 frequently. Your system will be running at its peak during the summer. If you run into troubles or need to schedule regular, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call ACS Heating and Air Conditioning in Tucker at 770-450-1539.
