5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service Posted May 21, 2015 With summer approaching, 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 problems are more common than others. Even if you recently had your regular spring maintenance performed, you should still look out for these four possible 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 a problem here you’ll want to call in experienced professionals, like MPC Heating & Cooling in Chadron. This way, you’ll be certain your system is properly repaired and running at its best. Not only will this make certain 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 get clogged with dirt and grime you’ll see a marked decrease in your system’s efficiency, and potentially many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. MPC Heating & Cooling can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to verify it’s clean and running well. Cycling too frequently If it seems like 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. Another 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 problem could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as qualified as the team at MPC Heating & Cooling. Drainage Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that it produces during the cooling process. Mold and mildew problems can manifest if the drain becomes clogged, 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 functioning at its best during the summer. If you run into troubles or need to schedule annual, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call MPC Heating & Cooling in Chadron at 308-832-4321.
