What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?
Gordon's Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with some of the most typical A/C problems in Oklahoma City.
If you can hear your air conditioning system running but there isn’t cool air blowing, you may need to have your refrigerant levels analyzed. Refrigerant is what helps make sure the air coming out of your air conditioner is actually cool. Call Gordon's 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.
A reason your condenser fan might not be rotating could be that it merely burned out and you need to replace the fan. 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 issues, you may be able to discover the culprit; if not, give Gordon's 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 working again.
First, try decreasing the temperature on your thermostat. It sounds ridiculous but sometimes we forget the obvious. If that doesn’t get your air conditioner cooling, check the air filter. If the air filter is dirty, it could cause significant cooling issues. Another issue that could cause your lack of cooling is that your HVAC system is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a common issue when homes are constructed. Gordon's Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will come out and conduct an analysis to determine if the size of your unit is causing your troubles.
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 needs cleaning. Once the unit is cleaned and all clogs removed, you may be all set. Note that humidity also plays a role 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 the equipment is having to work harder to keep your home cool.
No matter your issue, whatever AC trouble you run into, Gordon's Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here for you 24 hours a day so we can get your family comfortable quickly.
