What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

Golden Seal Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a couple of the most usual air conditioning problems in Saint Charles.

  • No Cool Air

If you can hear your air conditioner running but there isn’t cool air being produced, you could need to have your refrigerant levels checked. Refrigerant is what helps make sure the air being produced by your air conditioner is actually cool. Call Golden Seal Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning and we’ll come out and examine your refrigerant levels and look into why your system is not producing cool air.

  • Fan Won’t Rotate

The reason your condenser fan may not be rotating could be that it merely burned out and you have to replace it. Humidity tends to cause more condensation so a second matter to watch for is that the water is not draining right or that the drain is obstructed. If you can confirm these issues, you may be able to pinpoint the culprit; if not, give Golden Seal Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning 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 overlook the obvious. If that doesn’t get your air conditioner cooling, take a look at the air filter. If the air filter is obstructed, it could cause huge cooling issues. Another problem that could cause your lack of cooling is that your AC equipment is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a common issue when homes are constructed. Golden Seal Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will come out and perform an analysis to determine if the size of your unit is causing your problems.

  • System is Short Cycling

If your system is short cycling, or turning on or off continuously, it could mean one of multiple things. One is that your condenser or evaporator is dirty and needs cleaning. Once the equipment is cleaned and all blockages removed, you may be back in business. Remember that humidity also plays a piece so if your home cools to the desired temperature, but then the humidity causes your home to heat up quickly, it could result in on-again, off-again air conditioning because it’s having to work harder to keep your home comfortable.
