5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service05/21/2015With summer on the horizon, now is the time to think about any air conditioner service you might need to have performed to keep your home comfortable. 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 be mindful of 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 Triton HVAC & Refrigeration in Colorado Springs. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and running at its best. Not only will this make certain the leak is corrected, 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 likely many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Triton HVAC & Refrigeration can perform annual 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 sign it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and look over the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and establish the system is wired properly. Another reason an air conditioner may cycle on and off frequently could be that your system isn’t the correct size for your home. If this is the case, you may also feel that your home is too humid. Since this issue could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as experienced as the team at Triton HVAC & Refrigeration. Drainage Your system was devised 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 frequently. Your system will be running at its peak during the summer.
