What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

Efficient Home Solutions has experienced almost every possible scenario when it comes to air conditioning.  We have put together a few of the most common air conditioning problems we have observed.

Cool Air Non-Existent

Is your AC system blowing hot air and not cooling properly? If you can hear your system operating but there isn’t cool air blowing, you might need to have your refrigerant levels checked. This is usually the first step since refrigerant is what assists in making sure the air coming out of your air conditioner is actually cool. Call Efficient Home Solutions and we’ll check your refrigerant levels and investigate why your system is not blowing cool air.

Fan Not Operating

The in operation of your condenser fan may be due to it being burned out and you requiring replacement. If you can verify these matters, you may be able to pinpoint the culprit; if not, give Efficient Home Solutions can look into what has stopped your condenser fan from rotating and discuss your options to have your system cooling again.

Not Cooling Properly

Try lowering the temperature on your thermostat first. It sounds silly but sometimes we sometimes neglect the obvious. If that doesn’t get your system cooling, check the air filter. If the air filter is dirty, it could cause major cooling troubles. Another issue that could cause your insufficient cooling is that your air conditioner is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a frequent issue when homes are constructed. Efficient Home Solutions will come out and conduct an analysis to determine if the size of your system is causing your problems.

System is Short Cycling or Cycling too Often

If your AC is short cycling, or turning on or off repeatedly, it could be the result of multiple things. One, your condenser or evaporator is dirty and in need of cleaning. Once the unit is cleaned and all blockages removed, you may be back in business. Remember that humidity also plays a piece 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.
