With summer around the corner, 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 a number of things you can look for when contemplating air conditioner service, but some problems are more common than others.
Even if you recently had your regular spring maintenance performed, you should still keep an eye out for these four potential 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 Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc in Carpentersville. This way, you’ll be certain your system is properly repaired and running 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 optimal 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 possibly many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to make certain 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 sign it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and review 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 proper 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 Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc.
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 regularly. Your system will be operating at its best during the summer. If you run into issues or need to schedule routine, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc in Carpentersville at 224-412-8308.
