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

May 21, 2015

With summer approaching, now is the time to think about any air conditioner service you might need to have performed to keep your home comfortable. 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 possible problems if your air conditioner isn’t running properly.

  1. Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To
    This may be a sign of leaking refrigerant. If you sense a problem here you’ll want to call in experienced professionals, like Comfort Zone Inc in Cape Coral. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and functioning at its best. Not only will this ensure the leak is corrected, but the refrigerant charge will be matched to the manufacturer’s exact specifications, ensuring the most efficient operation.
  2. Inadequate maintenance
    When your air conditioner’s filters and coils are covered in dirt and grime you’ll see a noticeable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and possibly many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Comfort Zone Inc can perform regular maintenance on your air conditioner to ensure 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 sign it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and check the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and ensure the system is wired properly. Something else that may be causing an air conditioner to cycle on and off frequently could be that your system isn’t the appropriate 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 experienced as the team at Comfort Zone Inc.
  4. 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 frequently. Your system will be operating at its finest during the summer. If you run into issues or need to schedule regular, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Comfort Zone Inc in Cape Coral at 239-214-0411.
