With summer on the horizon, 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 problems 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 possible problems if your air conditioner isn’t operating as it should.
- 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 qualified professionals, like Patterson & Stirling Inc in Erie. This way, you’ll be certain 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.
- Inadequate maintenance
When your air conditioner’s filters and coils build up with dirt and grime you’ll see a noticeable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and potentially many other issues if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Patterson & Stirling Inc can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to ensure 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 sign it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and check the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and establish the system is wired properly. Something else that may be causing an air conditioner to 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 feel 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 Patterson & Stirling Inc.
Your system was designed to take care of draining the condensation that it produces 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 operating at its best during the summer. If you run into troubles or need to schedule routine, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Patterson & Stirling Inc in Erie at 814-308-0416.
