My Lexington Air Conditioner Can’t Keep Up

Air Conditioner Struggles In Summer | Climate Control
The hot, humid conditions a Lexington summer brings can place a burden on your air conditioning system. You’ll find it’s probably working a little more frequently to meet your cooling demand on these hot days, but what you shouldn’t experience is an air conditioner that is struggling, producing little cooling while running long hours.

If you notice your system is struggling to cool your home or business, system issues could be to blame. It’s important that these issues be resolved as soon as possible to prevent further strain and malfunction of your air conditioner. Here are some common air conditioning problems that can force your unit to struggle this summer.

Refrigerant leaks

If refrigerant is leaking from your unit, the system won’t have adequate refrigerant levels to perform effective heat exchange. You’ll notice a lack of cooling indoors, and such a leak could even cause extensive damage to your system if ran without repair. Climate Control’s NATE-certified HVAC technicians can find and repair any refrigerant leaks while charging your system back up to proper refrigerant levels safely.

Dirty air filters

If your air conditioner is running with a dirty air filter in place, air flow will be restricted. This means you probably won’t feel much cool air coming from your vents, which makes it seem as if your air conditioner isn’t producing cooling. Always check your air filter frequently during the summer and replace it as needed, which may be more frequently than usual due to heavy use during these months.

Dirty coils

If the coils inside your exterior unit are covered in debris, heat exchange will not occur effectively. The refrigerant in your system won’t properly cool, and your system will overwork to overcompensate. The air inside your home or business won’t feel as cool because the indoor coils won’t have cooled refrigerant piped through, so they won’t be able to remove as much heat from your indoor air. Our technicians can perform a thorough coil cleaning to eliminate this issue.

If your Lexington air conditioner seems to be struggling this summer, call Climate Control right away for fast and accurate cooling system repairs.
