What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

Comfort Masters Service Experts is here with a few of the most typical air conditioning problems in Wheeling.

  • No Cool Air

If you can hear your A/C equipment running but there isn’t cool air coming out, you could need to have your refrigerant levels analyzed. Refrigerant is what helps make sure the air being produced by your air conditioner is actually cool. Call Comfort Masters Service Experts and we’ll come out and review your refrigerant levels and look into why your air conditioner is not producing cool air.

  • Fan Won’t Rotate

One reason your condenser fan may not be rotating could be that it merely burned out and you have to replace it. Humidity can cause more condensation so another matter to watch for is that the water is not draining right or that the drain is blocked. If you can verify these matters, you may be able to find the problem; if not, give Comfort Masters Service Experts a call and we can investigate what has stopped your condenser fan from rotating and discuss your options to get your system cooling again.

  • Not Cooling Properly

First, try lowering your thermostat. It sounds ridiculous but sometimes we forget the obvious. If that doesn’t get your system cooling, take a look at the air filter. If the air filter is blocked, it could cause huge cooling troubles. Another issue that could cause your lack of cooling is that your air conditioner is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a typical issue when homes are constructed. Comfort Masters Service Experts will come out and conduct an analysis to determine if the size of your equipment is causing your issues.

  • System is Short Cycling

If your AC is short cycling, or turning on or off continuously, it could mean one of many things. One is that your condenser or evaporator is dirty and requires cleaning. Once the system is cleaned and all clogs removed, you may be good to go. Note that humidity also plays a part so if your home cools to the correct temperature, but then the humidity causes your home to warm up again, it could result in on-again, off-again air conditioning because it’s having to work harder to keep your home at a lower temperature.
