What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

D & K Heating Service Experts is here with a couple of the most typical cooling problems in Belleville.

  • No Cool Air

If you can hear your A/C equipment running but there isn’t cool air coming out, you might need to have your refrigerant levels evaluated. Refrigerant is what helps make sure the air coming out of your air conditioner is actually cool. Call D & K Heating Service Experts and we’ll come out and check your refrigerant levels and look into why your air conditioner is not producing cool air.

  • Fan Won’t Rotate

One reason your condenser fan isn’t rotating could be that it just burned out and you have to replace it. Humidity could cause more condensation so a second matter to watch for is that the water is not draining right or that the drain is restricted. If you can check these things, you may be able to pinpoint the culprit; if not, give D & K Heating Service Experts a call and we can look into what has stopped your condenser fan from rotating and review your options to get your system up and running again.

  • Not Cooling Properly

First, try lowering the temperature on your thermostat. It seems simple but sometimes we overlook the obvious. If that doesn’t get your air conditioner cooling, inspect the air filter. If the air filter is dirty, it could cause huge cooling issues. Another problem that could cause your ineffective cooling is that your air conditioner is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a common issue when homes are constructed. D & K Heating Service Experts will come out and conduct an analysis to determine if the size of your unit is causing your problems.

  • System is Short Cycling

If your air conditioner 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 equipment is cleaned and all blockages removed, you may be back in business. Remember that humidity also plays a role so if your home cools to the desired temperature, but then the humidity causes your home to warm back up, it could result in on-again, off-again air conditioning because the system is having to work harder to keep your home at a lower temperature.
