What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

Peitz Service Experts is here with a couple of the most usual air conditioning problems in Pierre.

  • No Cool Air

If you can hear your air conditioning system operating but there isn’t cool air being produced, you may need to have your refrigerant levels analyzed. Refrigerant is what helps make sure the air being produced by your system is actually cool. Call Peitz Service Experts and we’ll come out and check your refrigerant levels and look into why your AC system is not giving off cool air.

  • Fan Won’t Rotate

A reason your condenser fan isn’t rotating could be that it simply burned out and you have to replace it. 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 check these issues, you may be able to pinpoint the issue; if not, give Peitz Service Experts a call and we can investigate what has stopped your condenser fan from rotating and review your options to get your system cooling again.

  • Not Cooling Properly

First, try decreasing the temperature on your thermostat. It seems simple but sometimes we forget the obvious. If that doesn’t get your A/C cooling, check the air filter. If the air filter is obstructed, it could cause significant cooling troubles. Another problem that could cause your ineffective cooling is that your air conditioner is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a frequent issue when homes are constructed. Peitz Service Experts will come out and conduct an analysis to determine if the size of your unit is causing your troubles.

  • System is Short Cycling

If your system is short cycling, or turning on or off repeatedly, it could mean one of multiple things. One is that your condenser or evaporator is dirty and requires cleaning. Once the system is cleaned and all obstructions 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 the system is having to work harder to keep your home cool.
