What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

Peachtree Service Experts is here with a few of the most common air conditioning problems in Atlanta.

  • No Cool Air

If you can hear your air conditioning system operating but there isn’t cool air blowing, you may need to have your refrigerant levels analyzed. Refrigerant is what helps make sure the air coming out of your system is actually cool. Call Peachtree Service Experts and we’ll come out and check your refrigerant levels and look into why your AC system is not giving off cool air.

  • Fan Won’t Rotate

A reason your condenser fan might not be rotating could be that it simply burned out and you have to replace it. Humidity could cause more condensation so an additional issue to watch for is that the water is not draining right or that the drain is restricted. If you can confirm these issues, you may be able to pinpoint the issue; if not, give Peachtree Service Experts a call and we can investigate 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 A/C cooling, inspect the air filter. If the air filter is dirty, it could cause significant cooling problems. Another issue that could cause your lack of cooling is that your HVAC system is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a typical issue when homes are constructed. Peachtree Service Experts will come out and do an analysis to determine if the size of your system is causing your issues.

  • System is Short Cycling

If your AC is short cycling, or turning on or off constantly, it could mean one of multiple things. One is that your condenser or evaporator is dirty and requires cleaning. Once the equipment is cleaned and all clogs removed, you may be back in business. Keep in mind that humidity also plays a role so if your home cools to the right 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 at a lower temperature.
