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

Cooling

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 quite a few things you can look for when thinking about air conditioner service, but some problems are more common than others.

Even if you recently had your regular spring maintenance performed, you should still look out for these four potential problems if your air conditioner is acting up.

  1. Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To
    This may indicate there is leaking refrigerant. If you sense a problem here you’ll want to call in qualified professionals, like Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning in Hattiesburg. This way, you’ll be sure your system is properly repaired and functioning 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 most efficient operation.
  2. Inadequate maintenance
    When your air conditioner’s filters and coils get clogged with dirt and grime you’ll see a noticeable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and possibly many other issues if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning can perform routine maintenance on your air conditioner to ensure 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 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 proper size for your home. If this is the case, you may also find 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 Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning.
  4. Drainage
    Your system was designed to take care of draining the condensation that it creates during the cooling process. Mold and mildew troubles 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 running at its finest during the summer. If you run into issues or need to schedule routine, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning in Hattiesburg at 601-268-3486.
