5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service Posted May 21, 2015 With summer on the horizon, now is the time to think about any air conditioner service you might need to have performed to keep your home comfortable. There are several things you can look for when thinking about air conditioner service, but some issues are more common than others. Even if you recently had your regular spring maintenance performed, you should still be mindful of these four potential problems if your air conditioner isn’t operating as it should. 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 experienced professionals, like Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning in Winnipeg. 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 marked decrease in your system’s efficiency, and possibly many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning can perform regular 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 indication it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and review the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and ensure the system is wired properly. Another 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 find 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 Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning. Drainage Your system was made to take care of draining the condensation that that forms 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 frequently. Your system will be running at its peak during the summer.
