Most Common AC Problems in Austin

What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

Strand Brothers Service Experts is here with a couple of the most usual A/C problems in Austin.

  • No Cool Air

If you can hear your A/C equipment working but there isn’t cool air being produced, you may need to have your refrigerant levels evaluated. Refrigerant is what helps make sure the air coming out of your system is actually cool. Call Strand Brothers Service Experts and we’ll come out and examine your refrigerant levels and look into why your AC system is not producing cool air.

  • Fan Won’t Rotate

A reason your condenser fan might not be rotating could be that it merely burned out and you have to replace it. Humidity tends to cause more condensation so a second matter to watch for is that the water is not draining correctly or that the drain is blocked. If you can confirm these matters, you may be able to pinpoint the issue; if not, give Strand Brothers Service Experts a call and we can look into what has stopped your condenser fan from rotating and go over your options to get your system cooling again.

  • Not Cooling Properly

First, try lowering the temperature on your thermostat. It sounds ridiculous but sometimes we overlook the obvious. If that doesn’t get your A/C cooling, check the air filter. If the air filter is blocked, it could cause major cooling issues. Another problem that could cause your insufficient cooling is that your HVAC system is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a common issue when homes are constructed. Strand Brothers Service Experts will come out and do an analysis to determine if the size of your equipment is causing your issues.

  • System is Short Cycling

If your system is short cycling, or turning on or off continuously, it could mean one of several things. One is that your condenser or evaporator is dirty and requires cleaning. Once the equipment is cleaned and all clogs removed, you may be good to go. Note that humidity also plays a piece so if your home cools to the desired temperature, but then the humidity causes your home to heat up quickly, it could result in on-again, off-again air conditioning because the equipment is having to work harder to keep your home at a lower temperature.

No matter your issue, whatever air conditioning trouble you run into, Strand Brothers Service Experts is here for you 24/7/365 so we can get you comfortable quickly.
