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 a number of 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 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 functioning 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 build up with dirt and grime you’ll see a notable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and likely many other issues if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. The Frazier Company can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to verify 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 sign it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and review 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 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 The Frazier Company.
Your system was made 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. If you run into troubles or need to schedule regular, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call The Frazier Company in Omaha at 402-628-0206.
