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 several things you can look for when considering air conditioner service, but some problems 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 Faust Air Conditioning and Heating in Wharton. This way, you’ll know for sure your system is properly repaired and functioning 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 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. Faust Air Conditioning and Heating can perform regular 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 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 appropriate size for your home. If this is the case, you may also find 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 Faust Air Conditioning and Heating.
Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that that forms 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 regularly. Your system will be functioning at its peak during the summer. If you run into issues or need to schedule routine, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Faust Air Conditioning and Heating in Wharton at 979-323-6130.
