What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?
Gordon's Service Experts is here with a few of the most typical A/C problems in Oklahoma City.
If you can hear your air conditioner operating 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 and we’ll come out and check your refrigerant levels and look into why your system 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 problem to watch for is that the water is not draining properly or that the drain is restricted. If you can verify these things, you may be able to discover the culprit; if not, give Gordon's Service Experts a call and we can investigate what has stopped your condenser fan from rotating and discuss your options to get your system up and running again.
First, try decreasing the temperature on your thermostat. It sounds ridiculous but sometimes we neglect 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 significant cooling issues. Another issue that could cause your insufficient 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 will come out and do 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 several 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 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 equipment is having to work harder to keep your home comfortable.
