‘Mom, it’s hot in here!’ Oh no. If you live in Florida, that’s never something you want to hear. With warm weather year-round, having an air conditioner in your home is a must for many homeowners in the Sunshine State. But with an air conditioner comes the inevitability of AC repairs. It happens. Hot summers with temperatures that reach the nineties or higher, and wintertime temperatures that stay in the seventies in many parts of the state, mean that in many Florida homes, the air is running all day, all year. And when there’s an issue and the AC system stops working, no one wants to tough it out in the heat. That’s why a good home warranty that covers common air conditioning issues is also a must for new and longtime homeowners in Florida.
What are some of the air conditioning repairs you might need? From St. Augustine to Key West, on the east and west coasts of Florida, there are a few AC issues that come up again and again, like:
Air conditioning leaks
Inside or outside, a leak is never good. Not only is it a sign that something has gone wrong with your air conditioning system, a persistent water leak can lead to mold issues and water damage, and will keep the AC from running efficiently. A refrigerant leak will also keep your AC from working as it should – and leave it blowing hot air instead of cold. Any leak should be checked out by a professional air conditioning repair technician as soon as possible
There are electrical components to every AC system, and whether it’s a blown fuse or a problem with the circuit breaker, electrical issues in your air conditioner can be dangerous. A trained repair technician can diagnose the issue and get it fixed safely.
An aging air conditioner
Air conditioners, like all major appliances, need maintenance. Coils may freeze up, your electric bill may start rising, your AC might start making noises, and the machine may seem to just not work as well as it used to. Keeping up with routine AC maintenance can help prevent some common issues and prolong the life of your air conditioner. And when it’s time for a new one, replacing your old air conditioner is the best option.
Learning to identify some of the most common air conditioning problems can be useful, but so is having someone to call when something does go wrong.
