What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

McElroy Service Experts is here with a few of the most usual air conditioning problems in Grand Island.

  • No Cool Air

If you can hear your air conditioner operating but there isn’t cool air being produced, you might 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 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

One 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 properly or that the drain is obstructed. If you can verify these matters, you may be able to pinpoint the problem; if not, give McElroy Service Experts 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 forget 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 major cooling troubles. Another problem that could cause your lack of cooling is that your AC equipment is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a common issue when homes are constructed. McElroy Service Experts will come out and do an analysis to determine if the size of your equipment is causing your problems.

  • System is Short Cycling

If your system 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 in need of cleaning. Once the equipment is cleaned and all blockages removed, you may be back in business. Note that humidity also plays a part 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 it’s having to work harder to keep your home comfortable.
