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

May 21, 2015

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 a number of things you can look for when thinking about air conditioner service, but some issues are more common than others.

Even if you recently had your yearly spring maintenance performed, you should still be mindful of these four potential problems if your air conditioner isn’t running properly.

  1. Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To
    This may be caused by leaking refrigerant. If you sense troubles here you’ll want to call in qualified professionals, like Tri County Climate Control LLC in Bend. This way, you’ll know for sure 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 optimal operation.
  2. Inadequate maintenance
    When your air conditioner’s filters and coils are covered in dirt and grime you’ll see a noticeable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and potentially many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Tri County Climate Control LLC can perform routine maintenance on your air conditioner to make certain it’s clean and running well.
  3. Cycling too frequently
    If it seems like your air conditioner cycles on and off frequently, it could be a sign it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and check 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 notice 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 Tri County Climate Control LLC.
  4. Drainage
    Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that it creates 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 often. Your system will be running at its peak during the summer. If you run into troubles or need to schedule annual, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Tri County Climate Control LLC in Bend at 541-238-2797.
