With outdoor temperatures heating up, you’re starting to depend on your air conditioner more often. But if your AC system isn’t primed for peak cooling season, the increased workload will hinder operation and impact your comfort. Here are three air conditioner issues to watch for in your Lewes, DE, home that require professional AC repair service:
If your air conditioner has a refrigerant leak, the system won’t operate as it should. As a result, you’ll notice fluctuations in the indoor temperature. To fix this problem, a service technician must find the source of the leak, fix it and charge the air conditioner with the right amount of refrigerant. Refrigerant leaks are harmful to the environment and to you if you try to complete the AC repair yourself. That’s why you should hire a trained professional for the job.
Clogged Condensate Drain Line
Your air conditioner’s condensate drain line plays a critical part in the effective operation of your entire system. It removes the condensation produced by the evaporator coil by draining it from the air handler to the outside of your home. A clogged condensate drain line is one of the most common reasons homeowners need an AC repair. If excess water in the drain pan overflows, it’ll spill into your home and cause significant water damage.
Loud Noises in the AC System
Your air conditioner will hum at a low volume when it operates or turns on and off. But if you hear any loud noises coming from your system, including banging, grinding or squealing, don’t wait for the problem to worsen and break the entire air conditioner down. Turn the air conditioner off and call us to schedule an AC repair.
