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 a number of things you can look for when contemplating air conditioner service, but some issues are more common than others.
Even if you recently had your annual spring maintenance performed, you should still be mindful of these four likely 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 feel there’s a problem here you’ll want to call in experienced professionals, like Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. in Northglenn. This way, you’ll be certain your system is properly repaired and running at its best. Not only will this ensure the leak is corrected, 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 marked decrease in your system’s efficiency, and likely many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. can perform regular maintenance on your air conditioner to verify it’s clean and running well.
- Cycling too frequently
If you’re noticing 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 confirm the system is wired properly. Another 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 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 Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc..
Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that it produces during the cooling process. Mold and mildew issues 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 frequently. Your system will be running at its peak during the summer. If you run into issues or need to schedule annual, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. in Northglenn at 303-452-4146.
