5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service Posted May 21, 2015 With summer approaching, 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 considering 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 potential problems if your air conditioner is acting up. Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To This may be caused by leaking refrigerant. If you feel there’s a problem here you’ll want to call in trained professionals, like The Frazier Company in Omaha. This way, you’ll know for sure your system is properly repaired and operating 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. The Frazier Company can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to ensure 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 signal 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 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 notice that your home is too humid. Since this issue could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as experienced as the team at The Frazier Company. Drainage Your system was designed to take care of draining the condensation that it produces during the cooling process. Mold and mildew problems 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. If you run into troubles or need to schedule annual, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call The Frazier Company in Omaha at 402-896-5900.
