With 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 a number of things you can look for when thinking about air conditioner service, but some issues are more common than others.
Even if you recently had your regular spring maintenance performed, you should still be mindful of these four potential problems if your air conditioner is acting up.
- Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To
This may be caused by leaking refrigerant. If you sense troubles here you’ll want to call in qualified professionals, like Scott Temperature in Lawrence. This way, you’ll know for sure your system is properly repaired and running at its best. Not only will this guarantee 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 build up with dirt and grime you’ll see a notable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and likely many other issues if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Scott Temperature can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to ensure 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 look over the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and establish the system is wired properly. Another reason an air conditioner may cycle on and off frequently could be that your system isn’t the proper size for your home. If this is the case, you may also feel 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 Scott Temperature.
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 clogged, and this can lead to bigger problems.
Even if your air conditioner is newer, it can develop problems when it’s used often. Your system will be running at its best during the summer. If you run into problems or need to schedule annual, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Scott Temperature in Lawrence at 785-269-0465.
