With summer around the corner, 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 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 indicate there is leaking refrigerant. If you feel there’s a problem here you’ll want to call in trained professionals, like H&C Heating and Cooling in Laurel. This way, you’ll be sure 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 peak operation.
- Inadequate maintenance
When your air conditioner’s filters and coils are covered in dirt and grime you’ll see a notable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and possibly many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. H&C Heating and Cooling can perform routine maintenance on your air conditioner to make certain 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 find that your home is too humid. Since this situation could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as qualified as the team at H&C Heating and Cooling.
Your system was designed to take care of draining the condensation that it produces 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 often. 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 H&C Heating and Cooling in Laurel at 301-960-3247.
