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 several 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 annual spring maintenance performed, you should still keep an eye out for these four possible problems if your air conditioner isn’t operating as it should.
- Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To
This may be a sign of leaking refrigerant. If you sense a problem here you’ll want to call in trained professionals, like Precision Mechanical in Rapid City. This way, you’ll be certain your system is properly repaired and running at its best. Not only will this ensure the leak is repaired, but the refrigerant charge will be matched to the manufacturer’s exact specifications, ensuring the peak operation.
- Inadequate maintenance
When your air conditioner’s filters and coils are covered in dirt and grime you’ll see a notable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and possibly many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Precision Mechanical can perform routine 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 establish the system is wired properly. Another 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 feel 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 Precision Mechanical.
Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that that forms 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 regularly. Your system will be operating at its best during the summer. If you run into problems or need to schedule routine, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Precision Mechanical in Rapid City at 605-206-3766.
