With summer on the horizon, 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 several things you can look for when thinking about 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 possible 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 sense a problem here you’ll want to call in qualified professionals, like GV Heating & Air in Crystal and Twin Cities. This way, you’ll know for sure your system is properly repaired and running at its best. Not only will this ensure the leak is fixed, but the refrigerant charge will be matched to the manufacturer’s exact specifications, ensuring the most efficient operation.
- Inadequate maintenance
When your air conditioner’s filters and coils get clogged with dirt and grime you’ll see a notable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and likely many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. GV Heating & Air can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to ensure 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 indication it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and check the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and establish 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 problem could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as qualified as the team at GV Heating & Air.
Your system was designed 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 operating at its peak during the summer. If you run into troubles or need to schedule regular, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call GV Heating & Air in Crystal and Twin Cities at 763-535-2000.
