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 several things you can look for when thinking about air conditioner service, but some issues 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 isn’t running properly.
- 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 trained 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 build up with dirt and grime you’ll see a noticeable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and possibly many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. MPC Heating & Cooling can perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner to ensure 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 confirm the system is wired properly. Another 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 issue could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as qualified as the team at MPC Heating & Cooling.
Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that it creates 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 often. Your system will be functioning at its peak 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.
