What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

Komfort Air is here with a few of the most usual air conditioning problems in Charlotte.

  • No Cool Air

If you can hear your air conditioner operating but there isn’t cool air coming out, you may need to have your refrigerant levels analyzed. Refrigerant is what helps make sure the air coming out of your air conditioner is actually cool. Call Komfort Air and we’ll come out and review your refrigerant levels and look into why your AC system is not giving off cool air.

  • Fan Won’t Rotate

A reason your condenser fan might not be rotating could be that it simply burned out and you have to replace it. Humidity could cause more condensation so a second issue to watch for is that the water is not draining right or that the drain is blocked. If you can confirm these things, you may be able to find the culprit; if not, give Komfort Air 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 overlook the obvious. If that doesn’t get your A/C cooling, inspect the air filter. If the air filter is dirty, it could cause huge cooling troubles. Another issue that could cause your lack of cooling is that your air conditioner is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a common issue when homes are constructed. Komfort Air will come out and perform an analysis to determine if the size of your equipment 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 needs cleaning. Once the unit is cleaned and all clogs removed, you may be good to go. Keep in mind that humidity also plays a part so if your home cools to the desired temperature, but then the humidity causes your home to warm back up, it could result in on-again, off-again air conditioning because the system is having to work harder to keep your home comfortable.

No matter your issue, whatever air conditioning trouble you run into, Komfort Air is here for you 24 hours a day so we can get your home comfortable quickly.
