A/C issues are extremely common during the summer months. The Florida heat makes our systems work overtime to keep us cool, exposing more issues during the hottest days. If you find yourself with an A/C issue this season, there is an explanation as to what is happening in your system. Find out what the issue is BEFORE the problem gets worse, making your home uncomfortable during the hot summer months. Keep reading to learn more of the common reasons your A/C may need to be repaired.
One of the common reasons for a necessary repair is a condensation leak. If you have trouble with your central A/C and it’s less than 5 years old, you might want to schedule a service appointment to address the issue. During an inspection, a Cool Today technician will look for signs of a leak and other problem areas that could lead to this issue from occurring again.
Another problem area for your A/C system is your system's ductwork. Clogged or dirty ducts can cause parts of your home to get hotter than they should, impacting how well your system works. A clean A/C unit ensures that cool air flows freely through your home, so it’s crucial to have them cleaned regularly.
If your A/C unit is running but you aren’t feeling cold air, then your system probably has a low-efficiency rating. If you are running your A/C system 24/7 or leaving it on for extended periods of time, then it is probably energy inefficient, and it is wise to call an air conditioning professional to inspect your unit for the next steps.
Most compressors are not designed to last forever. After about 10 years, your unit may start malfunctioning, which can lead to a lack of cooling in your home. If you notice that your system doesn’t feel as cold as it used to or that you’re having problems with it overall, contact a licensed professional. They will be able to replace or repair your compressor and get your system back on track.
If your thermostat is set too low, you will be cooling empty rooms, which will wear out your system faster. If it’s set too high, you may not be able to maintain a comfortable temperature throughout your home. A professional will ensure it’s neither too high nor too low, so you're COOL TODAY!
We hope this article has provided you with insight into what might be causing A/C issues in your home. If you have a system that is not working properly, then it’s best to contact a licensed HVAC professional right away. It can be quite costly to replace your HVAC system, so it’s best to make sure you catch any issues before they cost you more money in repairs.
