5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service05/21/2015With 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 considering air conditioner service, but some problems are more common than others. Even if you recently had your regular 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 a problem here you’ll want to call in trained professionals, like Von Deylen Plumbing & Heating Inc. in Napoleon and Northwest Ohio. This way, you’ll be certain your system is properly repaired and operating 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. Inadequate maintenance When your air conditioner’s filters and coils build up with dirt and grime you’ll see a notable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and potentially many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Von Deylen Plumbing & Heating Inc. can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to verify it’s clean and running well. Cycling too frequently If it seems like 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 confirm the system is wired properly. Another 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 feel 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 Von Deylen Plumbing & Heating Inc.. Drainage Your system was designed to take care of draining the condensation that that forms during the cooling process. Mold and mildew issues 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 operating at its best during the summer. If you run into problems or need to schedule regular, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Von Deylen Plumbing & Heating Inc. in Napoleon and Northwest Ohio at 419-592-4756 or schedule an air conditioner service appointment online.
