With summer on the horizon, now is the time to think about any air conditioner service you might need to have performed to keep your home comfortable. There are quite a few 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 keep an eye out for these four possible 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 troubles here you’ll want to call in trained professionals, like Miller Climate Control LLC in Georgetown. This way, you’ll be certain your system is properly repaired and operating 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 optimal 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 likely many other issues if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Miller Climate Control LLC can perform regular maintenance on your air conditioner to verify it’s clean and running well.
- Cycling too frequently
If you feel that your air conditioner cycles on and off frequently, it could be a sign 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 proper size for your home. If this is the case, you may also find that your home is too humid. Since this situation could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as experienced as the team at Miller Climate Control LLC.
Your system was made to take care of draining the condensation that it produces 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 regularly. Your system will be running at its peak during the summer. If you run into troubles or need to schedule regular, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Miller Climate Control LLC in Georgetown at 512-937-2001.
