5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service

May 21, 2015

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 quite a few 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 isn’t running properly.

  1. 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 experienced professionals, like House of Heating Incorporated in Marshfield. 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 peak operation.
  2. Inadequate maintenance
    When your air conditioner’s filters and coils get clogged with dirt and grime you’ll see a marked decrease in your system’s efficiency, and likely many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. House of Heating Incorporated can perform regular maintenance on your air conditioner to ensure it’s clean and running well.
  3. Cycling too frequently
    If you’re noticing 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 check 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 situation could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as qualified as the team at House of Heating Incorporated.
  4. Drainage
    Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that it creates during the cooling process. Mold and mildew issues 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 frequently. Your system will be operating at its finest during the summer. If you run into issues or need to schedule regular, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call House of Heating Incorporated in Marshfield at 715-384-3163.
