Air Conditioner Service

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

With summer approaching, now is the time to think about any air conditioner service you might need to have performed to preserve your home’s comfort. There are quite a few 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 keep an eye out for 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 a problem here you’ll want to call in trained professionals, like Superior Comfort Systems in Hendersonville. This way, you’ll know for sure your system is properly repaired and functioning at its best. Not only will this make certain the leak is fixed, but the refrigerant charge will be matched to the manufacturer’s exact specifications, ensuring the optimal operation.
  2. Inadequate maintenance
    When your air conditioner’s filters and coils build up with dirt and grime you’ll see a noticeable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and potentially many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Superior Comfort Systems can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to make certain 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 signal it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and review 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 find that your home is too humid. Since this problem could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as qualified as the team at Superior Comfort Systems.
  4. Drainage
    Your system was made to take care of draining the condensation that it creates during the cooling process. Mold and mildew issues 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 functioning at its peak during the summer. If you run into troubles or need to schedule regular, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Superior Comfort Systems in Hendersonville at 828-775-5176 or schedule an air conditioner service appointment online.
