5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service05/21/2015With 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 quite a few things you can look for when contemplating air conditioner service, but some problems are more common than others. Even if you recently had your yearly spring maintenance performed, you should still keep an eye out for these four likely 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 a problem here you’ll want to call in trained professionals, like Air Max HVAC Inc in Thousand Oaks. This way, you’ll know for sure your system is properly repaired and running 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. Inadequate maintenance When your air conditioner’s filters and coils are covered in 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. Air Max HVAC Inc can perform regular maintenance on your air conditioner to ensure 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 confirm 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 appropriate size for your home. If this is the case, you may also notice that your home is too humid. Since this situation could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as experienced as the team at Air Max HVAC Inc. Drainage Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that it produces during the cooling process. Mold and mildew problems 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 peak during the summer. If you run into problems or need to schedule annual, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Air Max HVAC Inc in Thousand Oaks at 805-217-8662 or schedule an air conditioner service appointment online.
