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

Cooling

With summer on the horizon, now is the time to think about any air conditioner service you might need to have performed to preserve your home’s comfort. There are several 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 keep an eye out for these four likely problems if your air conditioner isn’t operating as it should.

  1. Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To
    This may be caused by leaking refrigerant. If you sense troubles here you’ll want to call in qualified professionals, like Arnold's Air Conditioning of South Florida Inc in Stuart and West Palm Beach areas. This way, you’ll know for sure your system is properly repaired and operating at its best. Not only will this guarantee the leak is corrected, but the refrigerant charge will be matched to the manufacturer’s exact specifications, ensuring the peak operation.
  2. Inadequate maintenance
    When your air conditioner’s filters and coils build up with dirt and grime you’ll see a noticeable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and possibly many other issues if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Arnold's Air Conditioning of South Florida Inc can perform regular maintenance on your air conditioner to ensure it’s clean and running well.
  3. Cycling too frequently
    If you’re noticing that your air conditioner cycles on and off frequently, it could be a indication 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. Something else that may be causing an air conditioner to 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 find that your home is too humid. Since this problem could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as qualified as the team at Arnold's Air Conditioning of South Florida Inc.
  4. Drainage
    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 clogged, 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 best during the summer. If you run into problems or need to schedule routine, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Arnold's Air Conditioning of South Florida Inc in Stuart and West Palm Beach areas at 772-205-3269 or schedule an air conditioner service appointment online.
