5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service Posted May 21, 2015 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 be mindful of these four likely problems if your air conditioner isn’t operating as it should. Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To This may indicate there is leaking refrigerant. If you feel there’s a problem here you’ll want to call in experienced professionals, like Woody's Sudden Service Inc in Manassas Park. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and operating at its best. Not only will this ensure the leak is corrected, but the refrigerant charge will be matched to the manufacturer’s exact specifications, ensuring the optimal 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. Woody's Sudden Service Inc can perform regular maintenance on your air conditioner to make certain it’s clean and running well. Cycling too frequently If you’re noticing 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 possible 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 feel 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 Woody's Sudden Service Inc. Drainage Your system was designed to take care of draining the condensation that it creates during the cooling process. Mold and mildew issues can manifest if the drain becomes plugged, 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 functioning at its finest during the summer.
