Most Common AC Problems in Edmonton

What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

Rob's Albertan Service Experts is here with a couple of the most common A/C problems in Edmonton.

  • No Cool Air

If you can hear your air conditioner operating but there isn’t cool air blowing, you could need to have your refrigerant levels analyzed. Refrigerant is what helps make sure the air blowing from your air conditioner is actually cool. Call Rob's Albertan Service Experts and we’ll come out and check your refrigerant levels and look into why your air conditioner is not producing cool air.

  • Fan Won’t Rotate

One reason your condenser fan may not be rotating could be that it just burned out and you need to replace the fan. Humidity can cause more condensation so a second issue to watch for is that the water is not draining right or that the drain is restricted. If you can verify these things, you may be able to pinpoint the problem; if not, give Rob's Albertan Service Experts a call and we can investigate what has stopped your condenser fan from rotating and review your options to get your system up and running again.

  • Not Cooling Properly

First, try decreasing the temperature on your thermostat. It sounds silly but sometimes we overlook the obvious. If that doesn’t get your A/C cooling, check the air filter. If the air filter is dirty, it could cause major cooling troubles. Another thing that could cause your lack of cooling is that your air conditioner is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a frequent issue when homes are constructed. Rob's Albertan Service Experts will come out and perform an analysis to determine if the size of your system is causing your problems.

  • System is Short Cycling

If your air conditioner 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 needs cleaning. Once the unit is cleaned and all blockages removed, you may be good to go. Remember that humidity also plays a role so if your home cools to the correct temperature, but then the humidity causes your home to warm back up, it could result in on-again, off-again air conditioning because it’s having to work harder to keep your home comfortable.
