What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?
Comfortech Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a few of the most common A/C problems in Jackson.
If you can hear your A/C equipment working but there isn’t cool air blowing, you might need to have your refrigerant levels evaluated. Refrigerant is what helps make sure the air being produced by your air conditioning system is actually cool. Call Comfortech Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning and we’ll come out and check your refrigerant levels and look into why your system is not giving off cool air.
A reason your condenser fan might not be rotating could be that it just burned out and you need to replace the fan. Humidity tends to cause more condensation so a second issue to watch for is that the water is not draining right or that the drain is blocked. If you can verify these things, you may be able to pinpoint the issue; if not, give Comfortech Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning a call and we can investigate what has stopped your condenser fan from rotating and discuss your options to get your system up and running again.
First, try decreasing the temperature on your thermostat. It sounds ridiculous but sometimes we forget the obvious. If that doesn’t get your air conditioner cooling, inspect the air filter. If the air filter is blocked, it could cause significant cooling problems. Another issue that could cause your insufficient cooling is that your air conditioner is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a common issue when homes are constructed. Comfortech Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will come out and conduct an analysis to determine if the size of your system is causing your problems.
If your system is short cycling, or turning on or off repeatedly, it could mean one of several 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 all set. Keep in mind that humidity also plays a part so if your home cools to the correct 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 comfortable.
