What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

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

  • No Cool Air

If you can hear your air conditioner operating but there isn’t cool air blowing, you could need to have your refrigerant levels evaluated. Refrigerant is what helps make sure the air being produced by your system is actually cool. Call Service Experts 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

One reason your condenser fan may not be rotating could be that it just burned out and you require a replacement. Humidity tends to cause more condensation so a second problem to watch for is that the water is not draining properly or that the drain is blocked. If you can confirm these things, you may be able to discover the issue; if not, give Service Experts a call and we can look into what has stopped your condenser fan from rotating and discuss 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 system cooling, take a look at the air filter. If the air filter is blocked, it could cause significant cooling troubles. Another issue that could cause your insufficient 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 perform an analysis to determine if the size of your system is causing your troubles.

  • 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 requires cleaning. Once the system is cleaned and all blockages removed, you may be back in business. Remember that humidity also plays a part 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 it’s having to work harder to keep your home cool.

No matter your problem, whatever air conditioner trouble you run into, Service Experts is here for you all day, every day so we can get you comfortable quickly.
