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

May 21, 2015

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 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 yearly spring maintenance performed, you should still be mindful of these four potential problems if your air conditioner isn’t operating as it should.

  1. 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 experienced professionals, like Bon Air Service Company in Grand Prairie. This way, you’ll be certain 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 most efficient 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 possibly many other issues if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Bon Air Service Company can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to make certain it’s clean and running well.
  3. Cycling too frequently
    If you’re noticing 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 check the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and ensure 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 issue could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as experienced as the team at Bon Air Service Company.
  4. Drainage
    Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that it creates during the cooling process. Mold and mildew problems 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 often. Your system will be running at its best during the summer. If you run into problems or need to schedule regular, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Bon Air Service Company in Grand Prairie at 972-332-1028.
