With summer around the corner, 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 potential problems if your air conditioner isn’t operating as it should.
- Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To
This may be a sign of leaking refrigerant. If you sense a problem here you’ll want to call in qualified professionals, like AZ Air Conditioning and Heating in Los Angeles. This way, you’ll know for sure your system is properly repaired and functioning at its best. Not only will this guarantee 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 build up with dirt and grime you’ll see a notable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and possibly many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. AZ Air Conditioning and Heating can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to verify 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 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. Something else that may be causing an air conditioner to cycle on and off frequently could be that your system isn’t the proper 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 experienced as the team at AZ Air Conditioning and Heating.
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 clogged, 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 operating at its finest during the summer. If you run into issues or need to schedule regular, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call AZ Air Conditioning and Heating in Los Angeles at 800-296-5088.
