Your AC may not be broken, but chances are that if you’re wondering,
there may be something wrong with it. When it comes to
air conditioning in Florida, a malfunctioning cooling system is about as good as a broken
one. The solutions to fixing broken and malfunctioning AC units vary.
Although many situations may require a
Palm Beach County AC repair specialist, it’s good to know what the problem is so you know what
to expect for repairs (and know when it’s time to find a replacement).
Air Conditioner Blowing Hot Air
If hot air is blowing out of your AC unit, you may be suffering from a
few different troubles: frozen condenser, leaking refrigerant, or trouble
with the thermostat. Sometimes, this can easily be fixed by a flip of
a switch, or some duct tape—but if it looks more complicated than
that from the outside, then it’s time for an HVAC technician to step in.
Air Conditioning Turns On & Off Frequently
In most cases, this is a sign that the air conditioning filters on your
system may need replacement. When was the last time you had your
AC filters checked, or replaced? It’s recommended for homeowners to change
their AC filters on a monthly basis. If you’re still having trouble
with your cooling unit constantly turning on and off, there may be a more
complicated issue that requires technical expertise.
AC Won’t Start Up
Is the thermostat set correctly? Although this seems like an obvious point,
this can help to determine whether the thermostat reader is broken, or
if another part of the cooling system is malfunctioning. If your thermostat
is operating correctly, and your AC still won’t start, then you
should have a specialist look at your air conditioning unit.
