What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?
Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a couple of the most typical air conditioning problems in North America.
If you can hear your A/C equipment working but there isn’t cool air blowing, you might need to have your refrigerant levels analyzed. Refrigerant is what helps make sure the air coming out of your air conditioner is actually cool. Call Service Experts and we’ll come out and check your refrigerant levels and look into why your system is not blowing cool air.
One reason your condenser fan may not be rotating could be that it merely burned out and you have to replace it. Humidity can cause more condensation so a second issue to watch for is that the water is not draining correctly or that the drain is restricted. If you can verify these matters, you may be able to pinpoint the culprit; if not, give Service Experts a call and we can look into what has stopped your condenser fan from rotating and discuss your options to get your system cooling again.
First, try lowering the temperature on your thermostat. It sounds silly but sometimes we neglect the obvious. If that doesn’t get your system cooling, check the air filter. If the air filter is dirty, it could cause major cooling troubles. Another issue that could cause your insufficient cooling is that your air conditioner is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a frequent issue when homes are constructed. Service Experts will come out and conduct an analysis to determine if the size of your system is causing your problems.
If your AC is short cycling, or turning on or off repeatedly, it could mean one of multiple things. One is that your condenser or evaporator is dirty and in need of cleaning. Once the unit is cleaned and all blockages removed, you may be back in business. Remember that humidity also plays a piece so if your home cools to the correct temperature, but then the humidity causes your home to heat up quickly, it could result in on-again, off-again air conditioning because it’s having to work harder to keep your home comfortable.
