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 several things you can look for when contemplating air conditioner service, but some issues are more common than others.
Even if you recently had your regular spring maintenance performed, you should still look out for these four likely problems if your air conditioner is acting up.
- 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 Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning in Bishop. This way, you’ll be certain your system is properly repaired and operating at its best. Not only will this ensure the leak is corrected, 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 get clogged with dirt and grime you’ll see a notable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and potentially many other issues if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning can perform regular maintenance on your air conditioner to make certain 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 review the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and ensure 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 correct size for your home. If this is the case, you may also notice that your home is too humid. Since this issue could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as seasoned as the team at Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning.
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 frequently. Your system will be running at its peak during the summer. If you run into problems or need to schedule regular, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning in Bishop at 760-784-9034.
