Most Common AC Problems in Tempe

What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

Bob Brown Service Experts is here with a couple of the most usual air conditioning problems in Tempe.

  • No Cool Air

If you can hear your air conditioning system working but there isn’t cool air coming out, you could need to have your refrigerant levels checked. Refrigerant is what helps make sure the air being produced by your air conditioning system is actually cool. Call Bob Brown Service Experts 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 may not be rotating could be that it just 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 correctly or that the drain is obstructed. If you can confirm these issues, you may be able to pinpoint the problem; if not, give Bob Brown Service Experts a call and we can find out 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, inspect the air filter. If the air filter is dirty, it could cause significant cooling troubles. Another issue that could cause your insufficient cooling is that your HVAC system is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a typical issue when homes are constructed. Bob Brown Service Experts will come out and do an analysis to determine if the size of your equipment 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 multiple 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 back in business. Remember that humidity also plays a piece 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 equipment is having to work harder to keep your home cool.

No matter your trouble, whatever AC trouble you run into, Bob Brown Service Experts is here for you 24/7/365 so we can get your home comfortable quickly.
