5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service Posted May 21, 2015 Cooling With summer around the corner, 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 quite a few things you can look for when considering air conditioner service, but some problems are more common than others. Even if you recently had your annual 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 be a sign of leaking refrigerant. If you feel there’s a problem here you’ll want to call in qualified professionals, like Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. in Oxford. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and functioning at its best. Not only will this make certain 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 are covered in dirt and grime you’ll see a noticeable 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 regular maintenance on your air conditioner to ensure 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 notice that your home is too humid. Since this problem could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as experienced as the team at Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.. Drainage Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that it creates during the cooling process. Mold and mildew issues can manifest if the drain becomes congested, 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.
