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

With summer approaching, now is the time to think about any air conditioner service you might need to have performed to preserve your home’s comfort. There are quite a few things you can look for when contemplating air conditioner service, but some problems are more common than others.

Even if you recently had your annual spring maintenance performed, you should still be mindful of these four possible problems if your air conditioner isn’t running properly.

  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 experienced professionals, like Oak Point Heating and Air LLC in Denton. This way, you’ll be sure 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.
  2. Inadequate maintenance
    When your air conditioner’s filters and coils build up with dirt and grime you’ll see a notable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and likely many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Oak Point Heating and Air LLC can perform regular 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 signal it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and look over 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 find that your home is too humid. Since this problem could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as experienced as the team at Oak Point Heating and Air LLC.
  4. Drainage
    Your system was designed to take care of draining the condensation that it produces 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 frequently. Your system will be operating at its finest during the summer. If you run into troubles or need to schedule routine, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Oak Point Heating and Air LLC in Denton at 940-202-1202.
