What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

Stevenson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with some of the most typical A/C problems in Dayton.

  • No Cool Air

If you can hear your air conditioner 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 being produced by your air conditioner is actually cool. Call Stevenson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning and we’ll come out and review your refrigerant levels and look into why your air conditioner is not producing 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 can cause more condensation so a second matter to watch for is that the water is not draining correctly or that the drain is restricted. If you can check these issues, you may be able to find the issue; if not, give Stevenson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning a call and we can look into what has stopped your condenser fan from rotating and review your options to get your system cooling again.

  • Not Cooling Properly

First, try lowering your thermostat. It sounds ridiculous but sometimes we neglect the obvious. If that doesn’t get your system cooling, inspect the air filter. If the air filter is dirty, it could cause significant cooling issues. Another issue that could cause your insufficient cooling is that your AC equipment is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a frequent issue when homes are constructed. Stevenson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning 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 equipment is cleaned and all blockages removed, you may be back in business. Keep in mind that humidity also plays a part 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 the system is having to work harder to keep your home comfortable.
