What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

Strand Brothers Service Experts is here with some of the most typical A/C problems in Austin.

  • No Cool Air

If you can hear your air conditioner running but there isn’t cool air blowing, you might need to have your refrigerant levels checked. Refrigerant is what helps make sure the air being produced by your air conditioning system is actually cool. Call Strand Brothers Service Experts and we’ll come out and review your refrigerant levels and look into why your system is not giving off cool air.

  • Fan Won’t Rotate

A reason your condenser fan isn’t rotating could be that it simply burned out and you require a replacement. Humidity could cause more condensation so an additional issue to watch for is that the water is not draining properly or that the drain is obstructed. If you can check these issues, you may be able to discover the issue; if not, give Strand Brothers Service Experts a call and we can find out what has stopped your condenser fan from rotating and go over your options to get your system up and running again.

  • Not Cooling Properly

First, try decreasing the temperature on your thermostat. It seems simple but sometimes we neglect the obvious. If that doesn’t get your A/C cooling, inspect the air filter. If the air filter is blocked, it could cause major cooling issues. Another thing that could cause your insufficient cooling is that your HVAC system is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a common issue when homes are constructed. Strand Brothers Service Experts will come out and perform an analysis to determine if the size of your system is causing your problems.

  • System is Short Cycling

If your air conditioner is short cycling, or turning on or off continuously, it could mean one of many 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. Keep in mind that humidity also plays a part so if your home cools to the correct temperature, but then the humidity causes your home to heat up quickly, it could result in on-again, off-again air conditioning because the system is having to work harder to keep your home cool.
