What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

McKinley Heating Service Experts is here with some of the most typical air conditioning problems in Edmonton.

  • No Cool Air

If you can hear your A/C equipment 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 blowing from your system is actually cool. Call McKinley Heating Service Experts and we’ll come out and examine your refrigerant levels and look into why your air conditioner is not producing cool air.

  • Fan Won’t Rotate

A reason your condenser fan may not be rotating could be that it merely burned out and you need to replace the fan. Humidity tends to cause more condensation so another problem to watch for is that the water is not draining correctly or that the drain is blocked. If you can confirm these issues, you may be able to pinpoint the culprit; if not, give McKinley Heating Service Experts a call and we can look into what has stopped your condenser fan from rotating and discuss your options to get your system up and running again.

  • Not Cooling Properly

First, try decreasing the temperature on your thermostat. It sounds ridiculous but sometimes we neglect the obvious. If that doesn’t get your A/C cooling, check the air filter. If the air filter is blocked, it could cause major 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. McKinley Heating Service Experts will come out and do an analysis to determine if the size of your unit is causing your troubles.

  • System is Short Cycling

If your system 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 unit is cleaned and all obstructions removed, you may be good to go. Remember that humidity also plays a role so if your home cools to the desired temperature, but then the humidity causes your home to heat up quickly, it could result in on-again, off-again air conditioning because the equipment is having to work harder to keep your home comfortable.
