Most Common AC Problems in Calgary

What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

A1 Chesney Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a couple of the most typical cooling problems in Calgary.

  • No Cool Air

If you can hear your A/C equipment running but there isn’t cool air blowing, 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 A1 Chesney Service Experts and we’ll come out and review your refrigerant levels and look into why your AC system is not blowing cool air.

  • Fan Won’t Rotate

A reason your condenser fan may not be rotating could be that it just burned out and you have to replace it. Humidity tends to cause more condensation so a second problem to watch for is that the water is not draining properly or that the drain is restricted. If you can check these things, you may be able to pinpoint the issue; if not, give A1 Chesney Service Experts a call and we can look into 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 lowering your thermostat. It seems simple but sometimes we forget the obvious. If that doesn’t get your air conditioner cooling, check the air filter. If the air filter is dirty, it could cause major cooling problems. Another issue that could cause your lack of cooling is that your HVAC system is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a typical issue when homes are constructed. A1 Chesney Service Experts will come out and perform an analysis to determine if the size of your unit is causing your issues.

  • System is Short Cycling

If your air conditioner is short cycling, or turning on or off constantly, it could mean one of several things. One is that your condenser or evaporator is dirty and requires cleaning. Once the system is cleaned and all obstructions removed, you may be back in business. Keep in mind that humidity also plays a role so if your home cools to the correct temperature, but then the humidity causes your home to warm up again, it could result in on-again, off-again air conditioning because it’s having to work harder to keep your home cool.

No matter your trouble, whatever air conditioning trouble you run into, A1 Chesney Service Experts is here for you 24/7/365 so we can get your home comfortable quickly.
