When To Call An AC Repair Company

South Florida homeowners know how uncomfortable the day is without a working air conditioner. Some homeowners often delay getting their AC repaired when they notice things starting to go wrong with it. However, left unattended and small repairs can create bigger problems, and replacing a broken AC unit is more expensive than repairs or regular preventative AC maintenance.

Knowing When It’s Time To Call An AC Repair Company

While there are smaller fixes you’re able to DIY when it comes to your air conditioner, handling tasks that should be left to the professionals isn’t recommended. There may be some things you can do such as checking the thermostat or changing the AC filter, but it’s always safer to have it done by an AC technician.

So how do you know when it’s time to call an AC repair company? Look at the 5 signs below:

1) Insufficient Cool Air In Your Home

If your home isn’t cooling as well as it should, first look at your thermostat. Someone else in the home could have adjusted the temperature settings. If your thermostat is set to the correct temperature but your home still isn’t as cool, you may want to reach out to your local AC repair company. Your AC system may require additional coolant or the compressor, thermostat, or motor could be faulty. All of these things should not be ignored and need to be inspected by a licensed AC technician.

2) Finding Moisture Near Your AC Unit

If you spot any signs of moisture in or around your air conditioning unit, there are multiple reasons for this. There may be issues with the refrigerant or a blocked or broken drain tube. The chemicals used in the refrigerant is a hazardous substance and additional moisture around your AC ducts can become a breeding ground for a mold infestation. If caught in time, an AC company will be able to resolve the issues without it permanently damaging your home. Keep in mind that a mold outbreak in your home can cause permanent damage to your home’s foundation if left unchecked.

3) Your AC Unit Won’t Turn On

One of the easiest fixes if your AC unit is not turning on is to check that it has power. Make sure that the unit hasn’t been unplugged or check your electrical panel to ensure that a blown fuse isn’t the cause of your AC switching off. If you still can’t get your unit to power on, reach out to a professional AC repair company to get it fixed as soon as possible.

4) Your Unit Makes Strange Sounds

Your home’s AC should never make loud or strange noises. There may be an obstruction to the airflow causing these sounds or there could be a more serious issue. If you ignore these noises it could result in damaging your system further. A licensed technician can locate the source of the problem and repair or replace the necessary components.
