Summer has arrived here in Orlando (not that it ever truly goes away)! With the higher temperatures and humidity, it pays to make sure that your air conditioner is in good condition. If your system needs to be repaired, you will want to make sure you schedule that service before you encounter a full breakdown.
To figure out if and when you need an AC repair you should know what the warning signs are that your system is having a problem. Of course, there are a lot of different repair needs your AC unit may have. That is why we have chosen three common repairs that just about everyone has encountered and should know how to identify.
3 Common Air Conditioner Repairs You Might Need
These are a few of the most common air conditioner repairs that you might encounter and their warning signs. If you think your cooling system is struggling with these or other repair needs, make sure you reach out to us to schedule your air conditioning service in Orlando, FL.
1. A Bad AC Filter
This is a fairly common and often bypassed repair need that your AC system will encounter. Your AC filter is located in your return air duct and its job is to capture any dust and dirt that would otherwise get into your AC and wreak havoc. Over time, your AC filter can become clogged with at these airborne particles and will need to be changed out our cleaned. You might have a dirty filter if you notice low airflow, dirty air, or a hissing sound from your cooling system.
2. A Refrigerant Leak
Refrigerant is the chemical solution that is used to transfer heat out of the air in your home and release it outside, thereby creating the cool air that your AC is meant to provide. However, much like a water pipe might spring a leak, there are times that your air conditioner might encounter a refrigerant leak too. If you notice a lack of cool air, short cycling, or even an AC that just won’t run anymore, it may be due to a refrigerant leak. This can be fixed with a refrigerant line repair and a recharge.
3. A Dirty Evaporator Coil
Your evaporator coil is the part of your air conditioner that cycles the refrigerant in your system. When the evaporator coil becomes dirty and accrues a layer of dust, dirt, and other debris, it will hinder the unit’s ability to produce cool air and can cause the system to overheat. Be wary of buzzing noises, short cycling, an icy build-up, dusty smells, and a reduction in cool air as these can all indicate your evaporator coil needs to be cleaned.
