With summer approaching, 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 thinking about 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 likely problems if your air conditioner isn’t running properly.
- Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To
This may be caused by leaking refrigerant. If you feel there’s a problem here you’ll want to call in qualified professionals, like Age Heating & Cooling in Sandpoint. This way, you’ll be certain your system is properly repaired and running at its best. Not only will this ensure the leak is repaired, 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 possibly many other issues if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Age Heating & Cooling can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to ensure 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 sign it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and check the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and establish the system is wired properly. Another reason an air conditioner may cycle on and off frequently could be that your system isn’t the correct size for your home. If this is the case, you may also notice 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 Age Heating & Cooling.
Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that it produces during the cooling process. Mold and mildew troubles 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 often. Your system will be functioning at its best during the summer. If you run into problems or need to schedule annual, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Age Heating & Cooling in Sandpoint at 208-578-4258.
