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

With summer around the corner, now is the time to think about any air conditioner service you might need to have performed to keep your home comfortable. There are several things you can look for when contemplating air conditioner service, but some issues are more common than others.

Even if you recently had your regular spring maintenance performed, you should still be mindful of these four possible problems if your air conditioner isn’t running properly.

  1. 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 trained professionals, like County Line Mechanical LLC in Reinholds. 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 corrected, 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 are covered in dirt and grime you’ll see a marked decrease in your system’s efficiency, and potentially many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. County Line Mechanical LLC can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to make certain it’s clean and running well.
  3. Cycling too frequently
    If you feel that your air conditioner cycles on and off frequently, it could be a indication it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and look over 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 correct size for your home. If this is the case, you may also notice that your home is too humid. Since this situation could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as qualified as the team at County Line Mechanical LLC.
  4. Drainage
    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 plugged, 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 operating at its finest during the summer. If you run into problems or need to schedule annual, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call County Line Mechanical LLC in Reinholds at 717-216-0846.
