Summertime in Florida means swelteringly hot days, where you feel as if you could just melt into a puddle the minute you leave your home. Admit it; the thought of living without your AC during the hot summer months petrifies you. The day your worst nightmare comes to life, but before you decide to replace or even repair your air conditioner a professional AC services company such as ours may be able to come to your rescue. So, before you panic and rush off to the nearest appliance store, take a look at a few reasons why your HVAC system isn’t working as it should.
People make mistakes; that’s what we do. Sometimes we may think our AC isn’t performing at optimal levels, but maybe someone in the house left the door or a window cracked open and all that precious cool air is leaking out. It is also important to make sure that nothing bulky is blocking your air vents as this will hinder your unit’s ability to operate at optimal levels.
Depending on who did the initial installation, there may be an issue with faulty wiring. Please remember that this isn’t something you can rectify by attempting a DIY. It is in your best interest to contact a licensed technician to take a look. Your experienced and licensed technician will be up to date on all local and state regulations regarding the wiring and should be able to fix the problem without any trouble.
Trouble with the temperature of your home could also be linked to a faulty thermostat. If your thermostat constantly cycles between on and off, the size of your AC system may not be appropriate for the room that it’s in or if it runs for too long, the room may be too large for the AC system. You may need to look into getting a bigger or smaller unit depending on your specific needs.
If there is a refrigerant leak, it is important that you get it seen to by a licensed AC technician. Aside from general cooling issues, a refrigerant leak can cause a more severe problem to your air conditioning unit. Your AC’s compressor was specifically created to handle a set amount of refrigerant, if the amount lessens, your compressor will overheat. If the leaked refrigerant gets inside the compressor, it may burn out and you will need to replace your entire AC system.
Everyone goes through a phase where everything in their home gets dusted and aired out, ready for summer. When last have you cleaned your AC filter and as filters are meant to be replaced every 3 months, for optimum efficiency, when last was your filter replaced? Regular preventative maintenance will ensure your AC is always ready to go. At Art Plumbing, AC & Electric, we believe in staying cool this summer. Our preventative maintenance plans are the perfect thing to keep your AC in shape this summer.
Remember, if you’re having any problems with your AC unit, we can fix it!
