5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service

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 keep your home comfortable. There are quite a few things you can look for when considering air conditioner service, but some issues are more common than others.

Even if you recently had your yearly spring maintenance performed, you should still look out for these four potential problems if your air conditioner is acting up.

  1. Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To
    This may be a sign of leaking refrigerant. If you sense troubles here you’ll want to call in qualified professionals, like Air Service Co. in Muldrow. This way, you’ll know for sure your system is properly repaired and functioning 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 peak operation.
  2. Inadequate maintenance
    When your air conditioner’s filters and coils build up with dirt and grime you’ll see a marked decrease in your system’s efficiency, and potentially many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Air Service Co. can perform regular maintenance on your air conditioner to make certain it’s clean and running well.
  3. 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 look over the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and establish 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 find 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 Air Service Co..
  4. Drainage
    Your system was designed to take care of draining the condensation that that forms during the cooling process. Mold and mildew problems can manifest if the drain becomes plugged, 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 routine, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Air Service Co. in Muldrow at 918-212-8943.
