Having a working air conditioner in Florida is important. The hot summers can seem unbearable without one. However, we know that there are common AC problems in Florida, especially as the weather starts to heat up. Here are some of the most frequent issues that pop up across our state.
Dirt and dust
Having an outdoor unit can lead to an HVAC full of dust and debris – two things that do not work well with your AC unit. When dirt, dust and debris get into your unit, it can find a home on your fan and motor and lead to lower efficiency with the system as a whole. If this happens, call a professional like Express Air to come out and evaluate the issue. We can help you decide if it’s worth fixing the issue or better to replace the unit as a whole.
Having low refrigerant in your AC unit can be the result of a few things but the most common is either a leak or poor previous maintenance. Having a leak in your unit is a fairly simple fix by a professional. After the leak is fixed, you can expect the technician to test it out to ensure you won’t have this issue again soon.
A clogged drain is never good – whether it happens in your sink, shower or AC unit, you know it needs to be fixed quickly. A clogged drain in your HVAC system will usually stop the flow of cold air and lead to a broken air conditioner. These are two things you do not want to happen as we head into the summer heat in Florida. A clogged drain is more likely to happen when the unit is being exposed to the outdoor extremes, such as hot, humid weather.
