4 Signs You Need AC Repair

Ac repair signs

In Boca Raton temperatures can stay into the upper 90's and lower 100's throughout the entire hot season. With such consistently hot weather, your air conditioner will work harder than ever in order to keep your home cool all summer long—meaning it's likely to experience some pretty nasty wear and tear. Fortunately, you don't need to let that wear and tear leave you with an unreliable AC unit. Instead, you can call our Coral Springs AC company for our repair work.

How can you know whether it's time to get a professional AC repair? Simple: You can keep on the lookout for some of the common signs of air conditioning wear. If you don't know what those signs are, don't worry. Instead, keep on reading. In this article, we'll detail four of the common symptoms of air conditioning wear to look out for.

Lukewarm Air

If you notice the air coming out of the vents isn't as cold as it should be, then there could be any number of causes for this. Regardless of the reason, it generally means that an important component in the equipment is not working properly. When it comes to the air conditioning system, one faulty part can affect all the parts, and eventually, the whole system collapses. Some symptoms may include a weak thermostat, a clogged air filter, or other factors outside. You may also need refrigerant in your system.

Wear Air Circulation

If the air is not flowing properly in your duct system, first check the unit to see if it has frozen up, in which case, thaw it out, change your air filters, and then turn it back on. Low air circulation could also mean that your air ducts are dirty or that they are blocked either internally or possibly an item lying on top of them. Check the air ducts in your attic to make sure they are completely open. If there is a blockage somewhere in the unit, then it's time to call Efficient Air & Heating expert to get the problem fixed immediately.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Noisy System

If you're turning on your air conditioner for the first time after months of it lying dormant, it may have to operate a few times before running smoothly. If after a few initial runs, however, you're system still seems louder than normal, then you may need to have your motor belt checked. Most older units that still use belts, will need them changed periodically in order to ensure smooth performance. Another cause may be the bearings, which help run the fan in good condition.

Regular Freezing Up in the System

There are basically two reasons why an air conditioner freezes up. The most common reason is blocked airflow. This almost always begins with a dirty air filter. One rule of thumb to remember is that air filters have to be changed on a regular basis. While some filters need to be changed monthly, others can last up to six months.

Regardless of what type of filter you may have, you need to set a reminder to change them often. Another possibility is that you have a leak somewhere in the refrigerant line. If this is the case, then you need your refrigerant line changed out immediately as this problem worsens in a short period of time.
