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 keep your home comfortable. There are a number of things you can look for when contemplating 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 operating as it should.

  1. 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 experienced professionals, like Bormida Mechanical Services Inc in Springfield. This way, you’ll be certain 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 peak 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 possibly many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Bormida Mechanical Services Inc can perform regular maintenance on your air conditioner to make certain it’s clean and running well.
  3. Cycling too frequently
    If you’re noticing that your air conditioner cycles on and off frequently, it could be a indication 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 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 notice that your home is too humid. Since this problem could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as experienced as the team at Bormida Mechanical Services Inc.
  4. Drainage
    Your system was made 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 operating at its finest during the summer.
