What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

R & M Climate Control Service Experts is here with a couple of the most usual A/C problems in Knoxville.

  • No Cool Air

If you can hear your air conditioning system running but there isn’t cool air being produced, you could need to have your refrigerant levels checked. Refrigerant is what helps make sure the air being produced by your air conditioner is actually cool. Call R & M Climate Control Service Experts and we’ll come out and examine your refrigerant levels and look into why your system is not blowing 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 an additional issue to watch for is that the water is not draining right or that the drain is obstructed. If you can confirm these things, you may be able to pinpoint the culprit; if not, give R & M Climate Control Service Experts a call and we can investigate 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 silly but sometimes we overlook the obvious. If that doesn’t get your system cooling, inspect the air filter. If the air filter is obstructed, it could cause major cooling issues. Another issue that could cause your lack of cooling is that your air conditioner is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a frequent issue when homes are constructed. R & M Climate Control Service Experts will come out and perform an analysis to determine if the size of your system is causing your troubles.

  • System is Short Cycling

If your AC is short cycling, or turning on or off continuously, it could mean one of several things. One is that your condenser or evaporator is dirty and in need of cleaning. Once the equipment is cleaned and all clogs removed, you may be good to go. Keep in mind that humidity also plays a piece so if your home cools to the right temperature, but then the humidity causes your home to warm up again, it could result in on-again, off-again air conditioning because it’s having to work harder to keep your home comfortable.
