With summer around the corner, 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 a number of things you can look for when considering air conditioner service, but some issues 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.
- Air Conditioner Not Cooling Like it Used To
This may be caused by leaking refrigerant. If you sense troubles here you’ll want to call in trained professionals, like Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc. in Muskogee. This way, you’ll know for sure your system is properly repaired and operating at its best. Not only will this make certain the leak is fixed, but the refrigerant charge will be matched to the manufacturer’s exact specifications, ensuring the optimal operation.
- 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 potentially many other issues if you don’t have them changed or cleaned. Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc. can perform regular 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 indication 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 notice 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 Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc..
Your system was devised to take care of draining the condensation that it creates during the cooling process. Mold and mildew issues 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 peak during the summer. If you run into troubles or need to schedule annual, preventive maintenance to keep it running, call Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc. in Muskogee at 918-682-8238.
