4 Common Air Conditioning Complaints
Here in South Carolina, homeowners know that there are few things worse than a broken air conditioner during the hottest part of summer. However, it is exactly then, during the dog days of summer, that your air conditioner is having to work it’s hardest. The strain from working so hard can exacerbate underlying problems with your air conditioner, causing it to give out just when you need it most. If your Myrtle Beach air conditioning system is exhibiting any of the following problems or is in need of maintenance or repair, contact the HVAC experts at East Coast Air, LLC for help today!
Air Conditioner Won’t Run
If your Myrtle Beach air conditioner won’t run at all, you may need to call a licensed air conditioning repair company to identify and repair the problem. However, there are a few things you can try at home before contacting a specialist for help. First, check your breaker box to ensure that the breaker for your air conditioning circuit has not been tripped. Don’t just visually inspect the breaker. Sometimes a tripped breaker can be subtle, so reset the breaker altogether to be sure it is in the correct position. If your air conditioner still won’t come on, check the batteries on your thermostat. If they died, your air conditioner may not run until they are replaced. If you have reset the circuit breaker and replaced the batteries on your thermostat but still do not have AC, contact the licensed professionals at East Coast Air, LLC today for expert assistance.
Air Conditioner is Short Cycling
If your air conditioner is rapidly turning on and then off again multiple times in a row, then it is short cycling. Sometimes short cycling happens because of something simple like clogged air filters. Make sure your air conditioner has all new air filters before contacting professionals. If replacing the air filters doesn’t fix your air conditioner, there could be a number of other causes such as dirty coils or low refrigerant. Because short cycling can strain and damage your air conditioning system, call for expert help to repair a short cycling air conditioner.
Air Conditioner Not Cooling
Sometimes, your air conditioner will come on and appear to be working, but it doesn’t seem to be cooling your home anymore. If your air conditioner is running but not cooling your home, make sure that your thermostat is set to the right temperature. If your thermostat has been changed by mistake, that can explain why your home isn’t cooling down correctly. Be sure to check the air conditioning filters as well, because clogged filters can impact your system’s performance. If you have checked the thermostat and filters without successfully identifying the problem with your air conditioner, then you should seek professional help. Your HVAC system could have stopped cooling for a number of reasons. Whether the problem is with your ductwork or your air conditioner itself, the experts at East Coast Air, LLC will be able to help you identify and repair the issue so you can get your house back to a comfortable temperature.
Air Conditioner Works In Parts of the House
If your air conditioner is not adequately cooling all of the rooms in your home, you may have an issue with your ductwork or your air registers. Worse, if you have rooms that aren’t cooling, that can impact your entire air conditioning system. Your air conditioner will have to work much harder to try to cool down a home that has consistent warm spots, putting strain on the system over time. One possible explanation is leaky or blocked ductwork, which could prevent air flow to certain parts of your home. Alternatively, a blocked air register can keep cold air from reaching the room it is intended for. If your air conditioner is not effectively cooling part of your house, have it inspected by our team at East Coast Air, LLC so that we can get your home air conditioning system back in working order.
