5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service Posted May 21, 2015 Cooling With summer approaching, now is the time to think about any air conditioner service you might need to have performed to keep your home comfortable. There are quite a few 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 possible problems if your air conditioner is acting up. 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 trained professionals, like Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning in Wyandotte. This way, you’ll know for sure your system is properly repaired and running at its best. Not only will this make certain the leak is corrected, but the refrigerant charge will be matched to the manufacturer’s exact specifications, ensuring the peak operation. Inadequate maintenance When your air conditioner’s filters and coils are covered in dirt and grime you’ll see a noticeable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and possibly many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to ensure it’s clean and running well. Cycling too frequently If it seems like your air conditioner cycles on and off frequently, it could be a signal 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 correct size for your home. If this is the case, you may also notice that your home is too humid. Since this problem could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as experienced as the team at Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning. Drainage Your system was designed to take care of draining the condensation that that forms during the cooling process. Mold and mildew issues 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 running at its best during the summer. If you run into issues or need to schedule regular, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning in Wyandotte at 734-284-1224.
