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 thinking about 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 likely problems if your air conditioner isn’t operating as it should.
- 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 B & B Heating & Cooling in Florissant. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and running at its best. Not only will this guarantee the leak is repaired, 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 possibly many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. B & B Heating & Cooling can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to make certain it’s clean and running well.
- 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 look over the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and confirm 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 appropriate size for your home. If this is the case, you may also notice that your home is too humid. Since this issue could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as seasoned as the team at B & B Heating & Cooling.
Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that it produces during the cooling process. Mold and mildew troubles 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 regularly. Your system will be functioning at its finest during the summer. If you run into troubles or need to schedule regular, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call B & B Heating & Cooling in Florissant at 314-325-7552.
