What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

Midland Air Service Experts is here with a few 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 being produced, you may need to have your refrigerant levels analyzed. Refrigerant is what helps make sure the air coming out of your system is actually cool. Call Midland Air Service Experts and we’ll come out and review your refrigerant levels and look into why your system 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 require a replacement. Humidity can cause more condensation so an additional issue to watch for is that the water is not draining correctly or that the drain is restricted. If you can confirm these things, you may be able to pinpoint the problem; if not, give Midland Air 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 cooling again.

  • Not Cooling Properly

First, try lowering the temperature on your thermostat. It sounds ridiculous but sometimes we forget the obvious. If that doesn’t get your system 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 air conditioner is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a typical issue when homes are constructed. Midland Air Service Experts 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 repeatedly, it could mean one of several things. One is that your condenser or evaporator is dirty and requires cleaning. Once the unit is cleaned and all blockages removed, you may be all set. Keep in mind that humidity also plays a part 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.
