Most Common AC Problems in the Niagara Region

What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a few of the most typical A/C problems in the Niagara Region.

  • No Cool Air

If you can hear your A/C equipment working but there isn’t cool air coming out, you might need to have your refrigerant levels evaluated. Refrigerant is what helps make sure the air coming out of your air conditioner is actually cool. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning and we’ll come out and check your refrigerant levels and look into why your air conditioner is not blowing cool air.

  • Fan Won’t Rotate

One reason your condenser fan might not be rotating could be that it simply burned out and you have to replace it. Humidity tends to cause more condensation so another problem to watch for is that the water is not draining correctly or that the drain is restricted. If you can confirm these issues, you may be able to find the issue; if not, give Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning 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 the temperature on your thermostat. It seems simple but sometimes we overlook the obvious. If that doesn’t get your air conditioner cooling, check the air filter. If the air filter is blocked, it could cause significant cooling issues. 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. Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will come out and conduct an analysis to determine if the size of your unit is causing your problems.

  • System is Short Cycling

If your air conditioner 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 in need of cleaning. Once the system is cleaned and all obstructions removed, you may be all set. Keep in mind that humidity also plays a part 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 the system is having to work harder to keep your home cool.

No matter your issue, whatever air conditioning trouble you run into, Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here for you 24 hours a day so we can get you comfortable quickly.
