5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service05/21/2015With summer around the corner, now is the time to think about any air conditioner service you might need to have performed to maintain your home’s comfort. There are several 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 likely 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 experienced professionals, like Klaus & Sons Heating & Air Conditioning in Upland. This way, you’ll be certain 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 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 likely many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Klaus & Sons Heating & Air Conditioning 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 sign 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 find that your home is too humid. Since this problem could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as seasoned as the team at Klaus & Sons Heating & Air Conditioning. Drainage Your system was designed to take care of draining the condensation that that forms 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 regularly. Your system will be operating at its finest during the summer.
