3 Common Air Conditioning Problems That Arise in the Summer

As the weather gets hotter and hotter, your air conditioning system will be used more and more. It’s common for problems to arise. Here are some issues that often arise during the summer.

Refrigerant Leak

The refrigerant is a liquid that sucks up the hot air inside your home and then expels it outside. If your refrigerant is low, it could simply mean that not enough refrigerant was added during the installation process, in which case adding more refrigerant will do the trick. If, however, the reason it’s low is because of a leak, a professional at Metro Heating & Cooling can help you by repairing it.

High AC Bills

If your bills suddenly seem excessively high, it may be traced back to a faulty air conditioning system. Many things can cause this, including a faulty thermostat that causes your air conditioning to work more than it needs to. You can also ask your friends and neighbors if they saw any changes in their monthly bill or if it’s just you.

Short Cycling Air Conditioner

Short cycling is when your air conditioner turns on and off excessively. This can be caused by a number of things, including a clogged air filter. It can also be caused by an electrical issue or low refrigerant levels (causing the air conditioner to work harder, overheat and shut down). If you don’t repair it fast enough, it can start breaking down under the stress.

If you face any of these problems, it’s best to call a professional. Contact us today for expert help in the Minnesota area.
