Common Commercial Air Conditioner Problems

With the warm temperatures of summer to deal with over the next several months, it’s important to keep an eye on your commercial air conditioning system. The last thing you want is for your air conditioner to break down in the middle of a hot day, after all. The best way to prevent that from happening is to watch for the warning signs that your air conditioner is having issues, so that you can get it repaired as soon as possible. Let’s examine some of those common problems more closely.

Short-Cycling

This is when your air conditioner keeps rapidly turning itself on and off every few minutes. This behavior locks the system into the startup part of its cycle, which is the most stressful section. Constantly going through this startup cycle will place the system under more stress than it’s supposed to handle, decreasing its lifespan and increasing the likelihood that a breakdown will occur. This is caused by either a malfunctioning thermostat, or a damaged compressor throwing off the rhythm of the system. Either way, it’s something that needs to be checked as soon as it is noticed.

Loss of Output

If your air conditioner is not putting out enough cool air (or any) it often means that you have a refrigerant problem. If a leak develops in the refrigerant line, it will drain the system of the fluid that it needs to actually cool the building. Eventually, this loss of refrigerant will cause the entire system to break down. One of the early warning signs, however, is that cool air output decreases or ceases altogether. You should definitely call a professional if you notice this happening with your air conditioner.
