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 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 regular spring maintenance performed, you should still be mindful of 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 Mayeuxs AC & Heating in Norco and St. Charles Parish. 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 most efficient operation.
- Inadequate maintenance
When your air conditioner’s filters and coils get clogged with dirt and grime you’ll see a noticeable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and likely many other problems if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Mayeuxs AC & Heating can perform routine maintenance on your air conditioner to make certain it’s clean and running well.
- Cycling too frequently
If you’re noticing that your air conditioner cycles on and off frequently, it could be a signal 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 proper size for your home. If this is the case, you may also notice that your home is too humid. Since this issue could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as experienced as the team at Mayeuxs AC & Heating.
Your system was made to take care of draining the condensation that it produces during the cooling process. Mold and mildew issues 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 frequently. Your system will be running at its best during the summer. If you run into problems or need to schedule annual, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Mayeuxs AC & Heating in Norco and St. Charles Parish at (985) 764-2426.
