What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?
Broad Ripple Service Experts is here with a few of the most common air conditioning problems in Indianapolis.
If you can hear your air conditioning system working but there isn’t cool air being produced, you may 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 Broad Ripple Service Experts and we’ll come out and examine your refrigerant levels and look into why your AC system is not blowing cool air.
One reason your condenser fan may not be rotating could be that it just 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 obstructed. If you can check these issues, you may be able to discover the problem; if not, give Broad Ripple Service Experts a call and we can find out what has stopped your condenser fan from rotating and review your options to get your system cooling again.
First, try lowering your thermostat. It sounds ridiculous but sometimes we neglect the obvious. If that doesn’t get your system cooling, take a look at the air filter. If the air filter is obstructed, it could cause major cooling issues. Another problem that could cause your insufficient cooling is that your air conditioner is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a common issue when homes are constructed. Broad Ripple Service Experts will come out and conduct an analysis to determine if the size of your equipment is causing your issues.
If your system is short cycling, or turning on or off repeatedly, it could mean one of many things. One is that your condenser or evaporator is dirty and requires cleaning. Once the unit is cleaned and all obstructions removed, you may be back in business. Keep in mind that humidity also plays a role so if your home cools to the right temperature, but then the humidity causes your home to heat up quickly, it could result in on-again, off-again air conditioning because the system is having to work harder to keep your home cool.
