5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service

May 21, 2015

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 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.

  1. 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 Dial One Mears Air Conditioning & Heating Inc in Phoenix. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and functioning at its best. Not only will this guarantee the leak is fixed, but the refrigerant charge will be matched to the manufacturer’s exact specifications, ensuring the optimal operation.
  2. 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 issues if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Dial One Mears Air Conditioning & Heating Inc can perform regular maintenance on your air conditioner to make certain it’s clean and running well.
  3. 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 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 correct 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 Dial One Mears Air Conditioning & Heating Inc.
  4. Drainage
    Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that it creates during the cooling process. Mold and mildew troubles 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 functioning at its peak during the summer.
