With summer approaching, 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 a number of things you can look for when thinking about air conditioner service, but some issues are more common than others.
Even if you recently had your regular spring maintenance performed, you should still look out for these four potential problems if your air conditioner isn’t operating as it should.
- Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To
This may indicate there is leaking refrigerant. If you sense troubles here you’ll want to call in experienced professionals, like Cytech Heating & Cooling L.C. in the Rio Grande Valley. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and operating at its best. Not only will this ensure the leak is fixed, 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 build up with dirt and grime you’ll see a notable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and possibly many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Cytech Heating & Cooling L.C. 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 indication it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and review the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and ensure 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 problem could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as seasoned as the team at Cytech Heating & Cooling L.C..
Your system was made 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 regularly. Your system will be functioning at its best during the summer.
