What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with some of the most usual A/C problems in Columbus.

  • No Cool Air

If you can hear your air conditioning system working but there isn’t cool air blowing, you might need to have your refrigerant levels analyzed. 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 check your refrigerant levels and look into why your system is not blowing cool air.

  • Fan Won’t Rotate

The reason your condenser fan might not be rotating could be that it merely burned out and you need to replace the fan. Humidity can cause more condensation so an additional problem to watch for is that the water is not draining right or that the drain is restricted. If you can check these matters, you may be able to find the problem; if not, give 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.

  • Not Cooling Properly

First, try lowering your thermostat. It sounds silly but sometimes we overlook the obvious. If that doesn’t get your A/C cooling, inspect the air filter. If the air filter is dirty, it could cause significant cooling problems. Another issue that could cause your insufficient cooling is that your HVAC system is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a frequent issue when homes are constructed. Service Experts will come out and perform an analysis to determine if the size of your unit is causing your issues.

  • System is Short Cycling

If your AC is short cycling, or turning on or off constantly, it could mean one of several things. One is that your condenser or evaporator is dirty and in need of cleaning. Once the unit is cleaned and all blockages removed, you may be all set. 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 the equipment is having to work harder to keep your home at a lower temperature.

No matter your issue, whatever AC trouble you run into, Service Experts is here for you all day, every day so we can get your home comfortable quickly.
