What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

Strand Brothers Service Experts is here with a few of the most typical air conditioning problems in Austin.

  • No Cool Air

If you can hear your air conditioning system running but there isn’t cool air blowing, you may need to have your refrigerant levels checked. Refrigerant is what helps make sure the air being produced by your 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

One reason your condenser fan isn’t rotating could be that it merely 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 blocked. If you can check these issues, you may be able to find the problem; if not, give Strand Brothers Service Experts a call and we can find out what has stopped your condenser fan from rotating and review 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 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 major cooling issues. Another thing that could cause your insufficient cooling is that your air conditioner 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 issues.

  • 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 in need of cleaning. Once the system is cleaned and all obstructions removed, you may be good to go. Keep in mind that humidity also plays a role 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 it’s having to work harder to keep your home cool.

No matter your problem, whatever air conditioning trouble you run into, Strand Brothers Service Experts is here for you all day, every day so we can get you comfortable quickly.
