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 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 regular spring maintenance performed, you should still look out for these four potential problems if your air conditioner isn’t running properly.
- 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 Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc in Oxford. This way, you’ll know for sure your system is properly repaired and functioning 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 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. Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc can perform routine maintenance on your air conditioner to verify 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 review the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and confirm 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 proper size for your home. If this is the case, you may also notice that your home is too humid. Since this issue could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as qualified as the team at Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.
Your system was designed to take care of draining the condensation that that forms during the cooling process. Mold and mildew issues 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 regularly. Your system will be operating at its peak during the summer. If you run into problems or need to schedule routine, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc in Oxford at 662-281-1231.
