What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a couple of the most common cooling problems in Fort Myers.

  • No Cool Air

If you can hear your A/C equipment running but there isn’t cool air blowing, you may need to have your refrigerant levels analyzed. Refrigerant is what helps make sure the air blowing from your system is actually cool. Call Service Experts and we’ll come out and check your refrigerant levels and look into why your air conditioner is not blowing cool air.

  • Fan Won’t Rotate

A reason your condenser fan isn’t rotating could be that it simply burned out and you require a replacement. Humidity tends to cause more condensation so a second matter to watch for is that the water is not draining properly or that the drain is restricted. If you can verify these issues, you may be able to find the culprit; if not, give Service Experts a call and we can investigate what has stopped your condenser fan from rotating and review your options to get your system working again.

  • Not Cooling Properly

First, try decreasing the temperature on your thermostat. It sounds ridiculous but sometimes we forget the obvious. If that doesn’t get your air conditioner cooling, check the air filter. If the air filter is blocked, it could cause significant cooling issues. Another issue that could cause your lack of cooling is that your air conditioner is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a frequent issue when homes are constructed. Service Experts will come out and conduct an analysis to determine if the size of your system is causing your issues.

  • System is Short Cycling

If your air conditioner 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 needs cleaning. Once the unit is cleaned and all obstructions removed, you may be good to go. Remember that humidity also plays a piece so if your home cools to the desired temperature, but then the humidity causes your home to warm up again, it could result in on-again, off-again air conditioning because it’s having to work harder to keep your home cool.
