Most Common AC Problems in Hilton Head Island

What Are Common Air Conditioning Problems?

Epperson Service Experts is here with a couple of the most usual air conditioning problems in Hilton Head Island.

  • No Cool Air

If you can hear your air conditioner operating but there isn’t cool air being produced, you may need to have your refrigerant levels checked. Refrigerant is what helps make sure the air blowing from your air conditioning system is actually cool. Call Epperson Service Experts and we’ll come out and check your refrigerant levels and look into why your AC system is not blowing cool air.

  • Fan Won’t Rotate

One reason your condenser fan isn’t rotating could be that it just burned out and you have to replace it. Humidity can cause more condensation so an additional issue to watch for is that the water is not draining correctly or that the drain is blocked. If you can check these things, you may be able to discover the issue; if not, give Epperson 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 lowering your thermostat. It seems simple but sometimes we neglect the obvious. If that doesn’t get your A/C cooling, check the air filter. If the air filter is obstructed, it could cause huge cooling troubles. Another thing that could cause your insufficient cooling is that your HVAC system is not sized properly, and unfortunately this is a typical issue when homes are constructed. Epperson Service Experts will come out and do an analysis to determine if the size of your unit is causing your problems.

  • System is Short Cycling

If your air conditioner is short cycling, or turning on or off repeatedly, it could mean one of multiple things. One is that your condenser or evaporator is dirty and needs cleaning. Once the equipment is cleaned and all blockages removed, you may be good to go. Keep in mind that humidity also plays a part so if your home cools to the desired temperature, but then the humidity causes your home to warm up again, it could result in on-again, off-again air conditioning because the equipment is having to work harder to keep your home comfortable.
