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 a number of things you can look for when considering air conditioner service, but some problems are more common than others.
Even if you recently had your annual spring maintenance performed, you should still look out for these four likely 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 troubles here you’ll want to call in trained professionals, like KDM Service Corporation in Tuscaloosa. This way, you’ll know for sure your system is properly repaired and running at its best. Not only will this make certain 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 notable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and possibly many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. KDM Service Corporation can perform regular maintenance on your air conditioner to ensure 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 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 proper size for your home. If this is the case, you may also notice 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 KDM Service Corporation.
Your system was designed 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 finest during the summer.
