5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service05/21/2015With 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 quite a few things you can look for when considering air conditioner service, but some issues are more common than others. Even if you recently had your yearly spring maintenance performed, you should still keep an eye out for these four potential problems if your air conditioner is acting up. 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 trained professionals, like Gordon Air Conditioning in Crestview. This way, you’ll be certain your system is properly repaired and running 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 noticeable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and likely many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Gordon 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 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 ensure the system is wired properly. Another possible 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 problem could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as seasoned as the team at Gordon Air Conditioning. Drainage Your system was made to take care of draining the condensation that it produces during the cooling process. Mold and mildew problems can manifest if the drain becomes congested, 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 peak during the summer. If you run into problems or need to schedule annual, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Gordon Air Conditioning in Crestview at 850-682-5509 or schedule an air conditioner service appointment online.
