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 keep your home comfortable. There are several 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 regular spring maintenance performed, you should still keep an eye out for these four potential 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 feel there’s a problem here you’ll want to call in qualified professionals, like Morgner Incorporated Air Conditioning & Heating in Saint Louis. This way, you’ll be 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. 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 likely many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Morgner Incorporated Air Conditioning & Heating can perform regular maintenance on your air conditioner to ensure it’s clean and running well. Cycling too frequently If you’re noticing 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 look over the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and establish 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 appropriate 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 qualified as the team at Morgner Incorporated Air Conditioning & Heating. 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 running at its peak during the summer. If you run into troubles or need to schedule routine, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Morgner Incorporated Air Conditioning & Heating in Saint Louis at 314-961-0875 or schedule an air conditioner service appointment online.
