Air Conditioner Service

5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service

With summer around the corner, 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 problems are more common than others.

Even if you recently had your annual spring maintenance performed, you should still look out for these four potential problems if your air conditioner isn’t operating as it should.

  1. 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 Davis Heating & Air Conditioning in Rocky Mount. This way, you’ll know for sure your system is properly repaired and functioning 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.
  2. Inadequate maintenance
    When your air conditioner’s filters and coils build up with dirt and grime you’ll see a marked decrease in your system’s efficiency, and possibly many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Davis Heating & Air Conditioning can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to make certain it’s clean and running well.
  3. Cycling too frequently
    If you feel that your air conditioner cycles on and off frequently, it could be a indication 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 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 feel that your home is too humid. Since this situation could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as experienced as the team at Davis Heating & Air Conditioning.
  4. 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 often. Your system will be operating at its peak during the summer.
