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 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 sense a problem here you’ll want to call in experienced professionals, like Freed Heating & Air Conditioning in Moline. This way, you’ll be certain your system is properly repaired and operating at its best. Not only will this ensure the leak is repaired, 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 marked decrease in your system’s efficiency, and possibly many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Freed Heating & Air Conditioning can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to ensure it’s clean and running well.
- Cycling too frequently
If you feel 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 ensure 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 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 qualified as the team at Freed Heating & Air Conditioning.
Your system was made to take care of draining the condensation that it creates 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 frequently. Your system will be operating at its peak during the summer. If you run into troubles or need to schedule regular, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Freed Heating & Air Conditioning in Moline at 309-323-9584.
