With summer approaching, 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 several things you can look for when contemplating air conditioner service, but some problems are more common than others.
Even if you recently had your yearly spring maintenance performed, you should still be mindful of these four potential problems if your air conditioner is acting up.
- Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To
This may indicate there is leaking refrigerant. If you sense troubles here you’ll want to call in experienced professionals, like Select Comfort Systems Heating & Air Conditioning in West Valley City. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and operating at its best. Not only will this guarantee the leak is corrected, 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 notable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and likely many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Select Comfort Systems Heating & Air Conditioning 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 signal 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 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 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 Select Comfort Systems Heating & Air Conditioning.
Your system was made to take care of draining the condensation that that forms 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 regularly. Your system will be running at its best during the summer. If you run into issues or need to schedule annual, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Select Comfort Systems Heating & Air Conditioning in West Valley City at 801-305-4777.
