5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service Posted May 21, 2015 With summer around the corner, now is the time to think about any air conditioner service you might need to have performed to keep your home comfortable. 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 keep an eye out for these four possible 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 qualified professionals, like Mitchell Heating in Colorado Springs. This way, you’ll be certain your system is properly repaired and running 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 most efficient 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 complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Mitchell Heating can perform regular maintenance on your air conditioner to make certain 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 review the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and establish 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 appropriate size for your home. If this is the case, you may also feel 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 Mitchell Heating. 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 clogged, 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 Mitchell Heating in Colorado Springs at 719-422-4236.
