What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

McElroy Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a few of the most usual A/C problems in Grand Island.

  • No Cool Air

If you can hear your air conditioning system running but there isn’t cool air being produced, you may need to have your refrigerant levels analyzed. Refrigerant is what helps make sure the air being produced by your system is actually cool. Call McElroy Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning and we’ll come out and check your refrigerant levels and look into why your system is not giving off cool air.

  • Fan Won’t Rotate

A reason your condenser fan may not be rotating could be that it just burned out and you have to replace it. Humidity tends to cause more condensation so an additional matter to watch for is that the water is not draining correctly or that the drain is obstructed. If you can confirm these matters, you may be able to pinpoint the issue; if not, give McElroy Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning a call and we can investigate 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 seems simple but sometimes we neglect the obvious. If that doesn’t get your A/C cooling, take a look at the air filter. If the air filter is obstructed, it could cause significant cooling problems. Another problem that could cause your insufficient cooling is that your AC equipment is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a common issue when homes are constructed. McElroy Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will come out and do an analysis to determine if the size of your equipment 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 needs cleaning. Once the equipment is cleaned and all obstructions removed, you may be good to go. Note that humidity also plays a role so if your home cools to the right temperature, but then the humidity causes your home to warm back up, it could result in on-again, off-again air conditioning because the system is having to work harder to keep your home cool.
