What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

Peitz Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a couple of the most common air conditioning problems in Pierre.

  • No Cool Air

If you can hear your air conditioner running but there isn’t cool air coming out, 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 Heating & Air Conditioning 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 merely 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 things, you may be able to pinpoint the problem; if not, give Peitz Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning a call and we can find out what has stopped your condenser fan from rotating and go over your options to get your system cooling again.

  • Not Cooling Properly

First, try lowering your thermostat. It seems simple but sometimes we neglect 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 issue that could cause your ineffective cooling is that your HVAC system is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a common issue when homes are constructed. Peitz Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning 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 blockages removed, you may be back in business. Note that humidity also plays a role 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.
