Here at Hodge Heating & Air Conditioning of Lake Norman Inc., we know how much you rely on your air conditioner to keep your home comfortable in the warmer months. Because of this, it’s frustrating to have to deal with air conditioner problems, and such problems will usually make you uncomfortable to boot. To help you resolve these situations as quickly as possible, in this article, we’ll go over a few of the most common air conditioner problems and their causes. Having an idea of what’s going on in your system will help you communicate with our team and get faster results.
- AC Won’t Turn On. One of the most common air conditioner problems that our team at Hodge Heating & Air Conditioning of Lake Norman Inc. gets called to help with is the system simply not coming on at all. This issue is typically caused by a thermostat issue–the sensor may not be working correctly, or the connection from the thermostat to your unit may have been interrupted somehow.
- AC Isn’t Cooling. Another common air conditioner problem is when the system is running, but is failing to actually cool your home. Unfortunately, this one has a number of possible causes, including anything from dirty air filters to a low level of refrigerant. If you find yourself dealing with an air conditioner that doesn’t do its job, we encourage you to give us a call to have our experts take a look.
- AC Cycles Too Fast. The third common air conditioner problem that we at Hodge Heating & Air Conditioning of Lake Norman Inc. will cover here is your system cycling too fast, meaning that it turns itself on and off too often throughout the day. This problem is usually caused by a dirty condenser or evaporator, or by a condenser that’s been blocked in some way. If you notice your system cycling more often than usual, it’s a good idea to get a professional inspection to figure out what’s up.
