Most Common AC Problems in Houston

What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

Church Services is here with a few of the most typical air conditioning problems in Houston.

  • No Cool Air

If you can hear your air conditioning system running but there isn’t cool air coming out, you may need to have your refrigerant levels checked. Refrigerant is what helps make sure the air coming out of your air conditioner is actually cool. Call Church Services and we’ll come out and examine your refrigerant levels and look into why your air conditioner is not blowing cool air.

  • Fan Won’t Rotate

The reason your condenser fan might not be rotating could be that it merely burned out and you require a replacement. Humidity tends to cause more condensation so another matter to watch for is that the water is not draining right or that the drain is restricted. If you can check these matters, you may be able to pinpoint the problem; if not, give Church Services a call and we can find out what has stopped your condenser fan from rotating and review your options to get your system cooling again.

  • Not Cooling Properly

First, try decreasing the temperature on your thermostat. It seems simple but sometimes we neglect the obvious. If that doesn’t get your system cooling, take a look at the air filter. If the air filter is blocked, it could cause significant cooling troubles. Another issue 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. Church Services will come out and perform an analysis to determine if the size of your system is causing your problems.

  • System is Short Cycling

If your air conditioner is short cycling, or turning on or off constantly, 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 clogs removed, you may be all set. Remember that humidity also plays a part so if your home cools to the correct 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 at a lower temperature.

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