What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with some of the most typical air conditioning 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 checked. 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 producing cool air.

  • Fan Won’t Rotate

A reason your condenser fan may not be rotating could be that it simply burned out and you have to replace it. Humidity can cause more condensation so a second problem to watch for is that the water is not draining properly or that the drain is restricted. If you can confirm these things, you may be able to discover the issue; if not, give Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning a call and we can find out 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, take a look at the air filter. If the air filter is dirty, it could cause major cooling issues. 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. Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will come out and do an analysis to determine if the size of your unit is causing your issues.

  • System is Short Cycling

If your air conditioner 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 needs 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 desired temperature, but then the humidity causes your home to warm back up, it could result in on-again, off-again air conditioning because the system is having to work harder to keep your home cool.
