What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?
D.A. Bennett Service Experts is here with a couple of the most typical cooling problems in Albany.
If you can hear your A/C equipment running but there isn’t cool air blowing, you could need to have your refrigerant levels evaluated. Refrigerant is what helps make sure the air blowing from your system is actually cool. Call D.A. Bennett Service Experts and we’ll come out and review your refrigerant levels and look into why your air conditioner is not producing cool air.
A reason your condenser fan may not be rotating could be that it merely burned out and you require a replacement. Humidity could cause more condensation so an additional matter to watch for is that the water is not draining properly or that the drain is blocked. If you can confirm these issues, you may be able to pinpoint the issue; if not, give D.A. Bennett Service Experts a call and we can investigate what has stopped your condenser fan from rotating and review your options to get your system working again.
First, try lowering your thermostat. It sounds silly but sometimes we forget 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 significant cooling problems. Another thing that could cause your insufficient cooling is that your AC equipment is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a frequent issue when homes are constructed. D.A. Bennett Service Experts will come out and perform an analysis to determine if the size of your equipment is causing your problems.
If your AC is short cycling, or turning on or off continuously, it could mean one of multiple things. One is that your condenser or evaporator is dirty and requires cleaning. Once the unit is cleaned and all clogs removed, you may be all set. Remember that humidity also plays a piece so if your home cools to the desired 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.
No matter your problem, whatever AC trouble you run into, D.A. Bennett Service Experts is here for you all day, every day so we can get your home comfortable quickly.
