Scheduling yearly air conditioning maintenance in Florida isn’t a bad idea. It comes with many benefits for your cooling equipment, including higher reliability, a potentially extended life span and energy savings. In addition, it can keep your manufacturer’s warranty in good standing, which covers you in case a crucial system fails during the warranty period.
Common Problems with Air Conditioning Systems
These are some of the most regular problems with AC systems. You might be able to handle some of these maintenance items on your own rather than paying for an air conditioner repair. However, you should get in touch with us if your air conditioner is leaking refrigerant or making odd noises.
Make sure the thermostat is properly set before examining the electrical panel for a tripped breaker. If your breaker is tripped, it may not require a repair call.
Double check that thermostat settings are on the right temperature and that your thermostat has power. Then replace the air filter, if you haven’t done this in the past few months. A fresh air filter can increase efficiency and indoor air quality. Make sure the outdoor unit isn’t obstructed by debris and that it isn’t leaking refrigerant. If you find a refrigerant leak, call us at 866-397-3787 for repair. If your air conditioner was purchased earlier than 2011, it likely relies on a hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) refrigerant known as Freon®, or R-22. This refrigerant is no longer being manufactured as a result of its harmful effects on the ozone layer. As only limited, recycled quantities are available, solving a R-22 refrigerant leak can be pricey. We often advise air conditioning installation in this instance.
Uneven cooling often doesn’t require an ac repair ticket, and instead might require unique solutions. Fluctuating temperatures or humidity that’s too high are often caused by leaky ducts, not enough insulation or blocked registers. If none of those things are creating the problem, consider adding blackout curtains on south-facing windows. We can also install a zoning system to regulate temperatures in distinct rooms. As another option, a mini-split heat pump with variable refrigerant flow can solve heating and cooling problems in areas that appear uncomfortable.
Examine the condensate line for clogs. This is the PVC pipe going out of the air conditioner. Leaking refrigerant can also cause ice to collect on the coils and drip water. AC service will be necessary to fully repair your air conditioner if it is covered in ice and this situation should be treated as an emergency ac repair.
Screeching, clanging, banging or clicking sounds suggest potentially dangerous problems. If you’re experiencing strange air conditioner noises, shut it off and call Arnold Air Air Conditioning for a prompt ac repair
