What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?
Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with some of the most usual cooling problems in West Palm Beach.
If you can hear your air conditioning system working but there isn’t cool air coming out, you may need to have your refrigerant levels evaluated. Refrigerant is what helps make sure the air being produced by your system is actually cool. Call Service Experts and we’ll come out and review your refrigerant levels and look into why your AC system is not producing cool air.
A reason your condenser fan may not be rotating could be that it simply burned out and you have to replace it. Humidity can cause more condensation so a second problem to watch for is that the water is not draining right or that the drain is blocked. If you can verify these issues, you may be able to discover the culprit; if not, give Service Experts a call and we can look into what has stopped your condenser fan from rotating and go over your options to get your system working again.
First, try lowering the temperature on your thermostat. It seems simple but sometimes we overlook the obvious. If that doesn’t get your system cooling, check the air filter. If the air filter is obstructed, it could cause major cooling problems. Another thing that could cause your lack of cooling is that your HVAC system is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a typical issue when homes are constructed. Service Experts will come out and conduct an analysis to determine if the size of your system is causing your issues.
If your AC is short cycling, or turning on or off continuously, it could mean one of several things. One is that your condenser or evaporator is dirty and requires cleaning. Once the equipment is cleaned and all blockages removed, you may be back in business. Remember that humidity also plays a part 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 cool.
No matter your trouble, whatever AC trouble you run into, Service Experts is here for you 24 hours a day so we can get your home comfortable quickly.
