5 of the Most Common Problems that Lead to Air Conditioner Service Posted May 21, 2015 Cooling 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 a number of things you can look for when considering 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 likely problems if your air conditioner isn’t operating as it should. Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To This may indicate there is leaking refrigerant. If you feel there’s a problem here you’ll want to call in trained professionals, like Garoken Energy Co. Inc. in Beaverton. This way, you’ll be certain your system is properly repaired and running at its best. Not only will this guarantee the leak is fixed, 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 get clogged with dirt and grime you’ll see a noticeable decrease in your system’s efficiency, and likely many other complications if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Garoken Energy Co. Inc. can perform routine maintenance on your air conditioner to ensure it’s clean and running well. Cycling too frequently If you feel that your air conditioner cycles on and off frequently, it could be a sign it’s time to have a professional inspect your system and review the wiring while they’re there to look for corrosion and ensure the system is wired properly. Another possible 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 feel that your home is too humid. Since this situation could be caused by many factors, it’s best to deal with professionals as seasoned as the team at Garoken Energy Co. Inc.. Drainage Your system was designed 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 peak during the summer. If you run into problems or need to schedule routine, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Garoken Energy Co.
