What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?
Teays Valley Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with some of the most typical A/C problems in Hurricane.
If you can hear your A/C equipment working but there isn’t cool air being produced, you might need to have your refrigerant levels analyzed. Refrigerant is what helps make sure the air being produced by your air conditioner is actually cool. Call Teays Valley Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning and we’ll come out and review your refrigerant levels and look into why your system is not blowing cool air.
The reason your condenser fan may not be rotating could be that it just burned out and you have to replace it. Humidity can cause more condensation so an additional problem to watch for is that the water is not draining properly or that the drain is obstructed. If you can verify these issues, you may be able to pinpoint the problem; if not, give Teays Valley Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning a call and we can investigate what has stopped your condenser fan from rotating and review your options to get your system cooling again.
First, try decreasing the temperature on your thermostat. It sounds silly but sometimes we overlook the obvious. If that doesn’t get your system cooling, take a look at the air filter. If the air filter is dirty, it could cause huge cooling problems. Another issue that could cause your insufficient cooling is that your air conditioner is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a typical issue when homes are constructed. Teays Valley Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will come out and perform an analysis to determine if the size of your equipment is causing your troubles.
If your system is short cycling, or turning on or off continuously, it could mean one of many things. One is that your condenser or evaporator is dirty and in need of cleaning. Once the system is cleaned and all obstructions removed, you may be good to go. Remember that humidity also plays a part so if your home cools to the desired temperature, but then the humidity causes your home to heat up quickly, it could result in on-again, off-again air conditioning because it’s having to work harder to keep your home cool.
