What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?
Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a couple of the most common air conditioning problems in Canada.
If you can hear your air conditioner operating but there isn’t cool air coming out, you may need to have your refrigerant levels evaluated. Refrigerant is what helps make sure the air coming out of your system is actually cool. Call Service Experts and we’ll come out and check your refrigerant levels and look into why your air conditioner is not producing cool air.
One reason your condenser fan may not be rotating could be that it just burned out and you require a replacement. Humidity could cause more condensation so a second issue to watch for is that the water is not draining right or that the drain is restricted. If you can confirm these matters, you may be able to find the problem; if not, give Service Experts a call and we can investigate what has stopped your condenser fan from rotating and review your options to get your system up and running again.
First, try lowering your thermostat. It sounds silly but sometimes we forget the obvious. If that doesn’t get your A/C cooling, inspect the air filter. If the air filter is obstructed, it could cause huge cooling issues. Another thing that could cause your lack of cooling is that your air conditioner is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a frequent issue when homes are constructed. Service Experts will come out and do an analysis to determine if the size of your unit is causing your problems.
If your AC is short cycling, or turning on or off continuously, it could mean one of several things. One is that your condenser or evaporator is dirty and needs cleaning. Once the equipment is cleaned and all blockages removed, you may be all set. Keep in mind that humidity also plays a part so if your home cools to the right temperature, but then the humidity causes your home to warm up again, it could result in on-again, off-again air conditioning because it’s having to work harder to keep your home at a lower temperature.
