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

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 quite a few things you can look for when contemplating air conditioner service, but some problems are more common than others.

Even if you recently had your yearly spring maintenance performed, you should still be mindful of these four possible 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 experienced professionals, like Innovative Mechanical, LLC in Dallas and Atlanta surrounding areas. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and functioning at its best. Not only will this guarantee the leak is fixed, 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 notable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and possibly many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Innovative Mechanical, LLC can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to make certain it’s clean and running well.
  3. 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 appropriate 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 seasoned as the team at Innovative Mechanical, LLC.
  4. Drainage
    Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that it creates 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 frequently. Your system will be functioning at its best during the summer. If you run into problems or need to schedule routine, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Innovative Mechanical, LLC in Dallas and Atlanta surrounding areas at 770-726-7407.
