We are in the dog days of summer here in Haverhill, MA and our air conditioners have been putting in overtime. If you haven’t had your air conditioner service yet this season, there’s still plenty of summer left to contend with so be sure and get that scheduled. There are a few problems that arise more often than others that you can be on the lookout for.
- Leaking refrigerant
There are two reasons your air conditioner may be low on refrigerant: it wasn’t properly charged at the time it was installed or you have a leak somewhere in your system. Your air conditioner doesn’t use up refrigerant. It is in a constant loop so if you’re running low call one of our certified professionals in to solve the problem. Adding more refrigerant without addressing a leak will not solve the problem and if your system was insufficiently charged we can get you up to the manufacturer’s standards. We can help get your system running at peak performance and efficiency.
- Insufficient maintenance
Just like your car needs its oil changed, your air conditioner needs routine service. A properly maintained system not only runs better, but it lasts longer. Annual air conditioner service allows our team a chance to catch small problems before they become big problems. We go through a series of inspections, tests and cleaning and it will keep your AC in tip-top shape. Our maintenance agreements will give you piece of mind and keep you comfortable.
- Short cycling
Short cycling is when your air conditioner is turning off and on too frequently. There are a number of things that could be causing this to happen. Your system may have been improperly sized for your home. Short cycling adds a lot of stress to your system and will shorten its life and increase your utility bills. You may also have some electrical issues with corroded wires or electrical connections causing issues. It’s best to call in the professional to evaluate any of these problems.
You shouldn’t have to worry about staying cool this summer and with our air conditioner service you won’t have to. It is our mission to keep your family comfortable. If you are experiencing any troubles or have any questions for us give us a call at (978) 872-1190. Of course, you can always set up an appointment with us online using our online scheduler.
