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

May 21, 2015

With summer approaching, 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 thinking about 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 likely problems if your air conditioner is acting up.

  1. 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 experienced professionals, like Dearing's Service & Solutions in Huntingburg. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and functioning at its best. Not only will this make certain the leak is corrected, but the refrigerant charge will be matched to the manufacturer’s exact specifications, ensuring the most efficient operation.
  2. 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 likely many other issues if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Dearing's Service & Solutions can perform regular maintenance on your air conditioner to verify it’s clean and running well.
  3. Cycling too frequently
    If you’re noticing that your air conditioner cycles on and off frequently, it could be a sign 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. Something else that may be causing an air conditioner to 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 notice that your home is too humid. Since this problem could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as qualified as the team at Dearing's Service & Solutions.
  4. Drainage
    Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that that forms during the cooling process. Mold and mildew troubles 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 frequently. 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 Dearing's Service & Solutions in Huntingburg at 812-200-5844.
