We offer 24-hour service and no overtime charges for equipment under warranty. There are problems that can affect your AC system by preventing it from running efficiently, which can cost you more money in the long run. Some of the more common air conditioning problems include the following:

Uneven Cooling

Airflow is very important to ensure that an air conditioning system is working effectively, and many factors affect the balancing on a room to room basis. Dirty ductwork, blocked air ducts, or a blocked outdoor unit can all cause improper airflow. If you experience hot and cold spots or uneven cooling in your home, it may be time to call for a repair service.

Refrigerant Leak on an AC System

One issue that can happen with an older air conditioner is that the refrigerant can start leaking, but it isn’t always easy to spot the warning signs. Some warning signs include wet streaks down the side of the main unit, as well as not enough cool air. Of course, there’s always a chance that these issues could be caused by something else. But it is a good idea to call a technician to come and check it out any time you notice problems with your air conditioning system.

Damper Registers

Damper registers can also affect airflow and output. Your air conditioning system can be “dampered” greatly to push more air to needed areas of your home.  As you damper down registers, this builds up pressure to even out the distribution evenly. Making sure you have the right registers is very important. Registers that force the air up will give you better room circulation and will do a better job in providing even temperature. Each register from there can be opened or closed more to balance the rest of the room. Up to 10% of registers in the cooling mode can be shut off completely.

Let the Salt Lake City air conditioning repair experts at Rentmeister Total Home Service evaluate your AC system and make sure that it’s working effectively for you.
