5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service Posted May 21, 2015 Cooling With summer around the corner, 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 indicate there is leaking refrigerant. If you feel there’s a problem here you’ll want to call in trained professionals, like Dave's Diversified Services in Front Royal. This way, you’ll know for sure your system is properly repaired and functioning at its best. Not only will this guarantee the leak is corrected, but the refrigerant charge will be matched to the manufacturer’s exact specifications, ensuring the peak 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 possibly many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Dave's Diversified Services can perform routine maintenance on your air conditioner to make certain 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 look over the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and establish 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 correct size for your home. If this is the case, you may also find that your home is too humid. Since this situation could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as seasoned as the team at Dave's Diversified Services. Drainage Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that it produces during the cooling process. Mold and mildew issues can manifest if the drain becomes clogged, 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 issues or need to schedule annual, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Dave's Diversified Services in Front Royal at 540-369-3971.
