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 preserve your home’s comfort. There are quite a few 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.

  1. Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To
    This may indicate there is leaking refrigerant. If you sense a problem here you’ll want to call in experienced professionals, like Brogan Heating & AC Inc in Rochester. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and functioning at its best. Not only will this guarantee the leak is repaired, but the refrigerant charge will be matched to the manufacturer’s exact specifications, ensuring the most efficient operation.
  2. Inadequate maintenance
    When your air conditioner’s filters and coils are covered in dirt and grime you’ll see a marked decrease in your system’s efficiency, and likely many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Brogan Heating & AC Inc can perform routine maintenance on your air conditioner to ensure 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 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 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 find that your home is too humid. Since this problem could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as qualified as the team at Brogan Heating & AC Inc.
  4. Drainage
    Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that it creates during the cooling process. Mold and mildew issues 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 regularly. Your system will be functioning at its peak during the summer. If you run into troubles or need to schedule regular, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Brogan Heating & AC Inc in Rochester at 507-218-0088.
