Air Conditioner Service

5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service

With summer on the horizon, now is the time to think about any air conditioner service you might need to have performed to maintain your home’s comfort. There are a number of things you can look for when contemplating air conditioner service, but some problems are more common than others.

Even if you recently had your regular spring maintenance performed, you should still be mindful of these four likely problems if your air conditioner isn’t operating as it should.

  1. Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To
    This may be caused by leaking refrigerant. If you sense troubles here you’ll want to call in trained professionals, like Schagrin Gas Company in Middletown. This way, you’ll know for sure your system is properly repaired and operating 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 optimal operation.
  2. Inadequate maintenance
    When your air conditioner’s filters and coils build up with dirt and grime you’ll see a notable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and potentially many other issues if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Schagrin Gas Company can perform regular maintenance on your air conditioner to make certain 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 indication 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 appropriate size for your home. If this is the case, you may also feel that your home is too humid. Since this situation could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as seasoned as the team at Schagrin Gas Company.
  4. Drainage
    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 congested, 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 functioning at its peak during the summer. If you run into troubles or need to schedule annual, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Schagrin Gas Company in Middletown at 302-658-2000 or schedule an air conditioner service appointment online.
