5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service Posted May 21, 2015 With summer around the corner, 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 a number of things you can look for when considering air conditioner service, but some problems are more common than others. Even if you recently had your regular spring maintenance performed, you should still look out for these four possible problems if your air conditioner isn’t running properly. 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 sure your system is properly repaired and running at its best. Not only will this make certain 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 likely many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning can perform regular 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 ensure 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 correct 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 Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning. Drainage Your system was made to take care of draining the condensation that it creates during the cooling process. Mold and mildew troubles 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 best during the summer.
