What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

Stevenson Service Experts is here with a few of the most typical air conditioning problems in Dayton.

  • No Cool Air

If you can hear your air conditioning system running but there isn’t cool air blowing, you might need to have your refrigerant levels analyzed. Refrigerant is what helps make sure the air coming out of your air conditioner is actually cool. Call Stevenson Service Experts and we’ll come out and review your refrigerant levels and look into why your air conditioner is not blowing cool air.

  • Fan Won’t Rotate

The reason your condenser fan might not be rotating could be that it just burned out and you have to replace it. Humidity tends to cause more condensation so another matter to watch for is that the water is not draining properly or that the drain is restricted. If you can check these things, you may be able to discover the issue; if not, give Stevenson Service Experts a call and we can look into 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 sounds ridiculous but sometimes we forget the obvious. If that doesn’t get your air conditioner cooling, inspect the air filter. If the air filter is dirty, it could cause major cooling issues. Another issue that could cause your lack of cooling is that your AC equipment is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a common issue when homes are constructed. Stevenson Service Experts will come out and perform an analysis to determine if the size of your system is causing your problems.

  • System is Short Cycling

If your air conditioner is short cycling, or turning on or off constantly, it could mean one of several 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. Keep in mind that humidity also plays a role so if your home cools to the correct temperature, but then the humidity causes your home to heat up quickly, it could result in on-again, off-again air conditioning because it’s having to work harder to keep your home cool.
