What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

Midland Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with some of the most typical air conditioning problems in Columbia.

  • No Cool Air

If you can hear your A/C equipment running but there isn’t cool air coming out, 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 Midland Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning and we’ll come out and review your refrigerant levels and look into why your air conditioner is not giving off cool air.

  • Fan Won’t Rotate

One reason your condenser fan may not be rotating could be that it just burned out and you need to replace the fan. Humidity tends to cause more condensation so an additional problem to watch for is that the water is not draining properly or that the drain is restricted. If you can verify these issues, you may be able to pinpoint the problem; if not, give Midland Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning a call and we can look into what has stopped your condenser fan from rotating and go over your options to get your system cooling again.

  • Not Cooling Properly

First, try lowering the temperature on your thermostat. It sounds ridiculous but sometimes we neglect the obvious. If that doesn’t get your air conditioner cooling, inspect the air filter. If the air filter is obstructed, it could cause significant cooling problems. Another thing that could cause your ineffective cooling is that your HVAC system is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a typical issue when homes are constructed. Midland Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will come out and do an analysis to determine if the size of your system is causing your troubles.

  • System is Short Cycling

If your system is short cycling, or turning on or off constantly, it could mean one of many things. One is that your condenser or evaporator is dirty and requires cleaning. Once the unit is cleaned and all obstructions removed, you may be all set. Keep in mind that humidity also plays a role so if your home cools to the right 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 comfortable.

No matter your trouble, whatever air conditioner trouble you run into, Midland Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here for you 24/7/365 so we can get your home comfortable quickly.
