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 problems are more common than others.
Even if you recently had your yearly spring maintenance performed, you should still look out for these four likely problems if your air conditioner isn’t operating as it should.
- Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To
This may be caused by leaking refrigerant. If you feel there’s a problem here you’ll want to call in experienced professionals, like Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning in Odessa. This way, you’ll know for sure your system is properly repaired and running at its best. Not only will this guarantee the leak is repaired, 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 get clogged with dirt and grime you’ll see a marked decrease in your system’s efficiency, and potentially many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning 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 signal it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and check the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and ensure 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 appropriate size for your home. If this is the case, you may also feel that your home is too humid. Since this situation could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as experienced as the team at Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning.
Your system was made to take care of draining the condensation that that forms during the cooling process. Mold and mildew troubles 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 often. Your system will be running at its best during the summer. If you run into issues or need to schedule regular, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning in Odessa at 432-237-0168.
