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 quite a few things you can look for when considering 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 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 feel there’s a problem here you’ll want to call in qualified professionals, like Solar Air Inc. in Fort Lauderdale. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and functioning at its best. Not only will this guarantee the leak is corrected, 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 noticeable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and possibly many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Solar Air Inc. can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to make certain 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 signal 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. Something else that may be causing an air conditioner to 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 issue could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as qualified as the team at Solar Air Inc. .
Your system was made to take care of draining the condensation that it produces during the cooling process. Mold and mildew issues can manifest if the drain becomes congested, 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 functioning at its best during the summer. If you run into issues or need to schedule regular, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Solar Air Inc. in Fort Lauderdale at 954-320-7398.
