When it comes to staying cool and comfortable during a Floria summer, your air conditioner is going to be your main line of defense. If you have kept your system well-maintained over the years, we are happy to hear it. However, this doesn’t mean that your system won’t ever need repairs.
An air conditioner that needs repair should be serviced as quickly as possible. Hopefully, you have our contact information close by so you can schedule an appointment with one of the professionals at IERNA’s Heating & Cooling to get your system fixed up.
First things first though, here are some of the potential repairs your system might need and their warning signs.
3 Potential AC Repairs You May Need
When it comes to dealing with an air conditioning repair in Tampa, it is understandable that the sooner you get the job done the better. Our systems see a lot of use throughout the year so an unaddressed repair need is likely to cause a full breakdown if you aren’t careful.
Be on the lookout for any signs that indicate some of the following potential repair needs so you can contact us for service ASAP:
- Low refrigerant levels: Refrigerant is the substance that absorbs heat out of the air in your home and pumps it outside. If you are low on refrigerant, a problem that is caused by a refrigerant line leak, you may notice that your AC isn’t providing enough cool air, is emitting a hissing noise, or is short cycling. If the refrigerant level is low enough, your AC may not work at all.
- Blower motor problems: Your blower motor powers the fans that pull in hot air and push out cool air into your home. Obviously, if there is a problem with the motor, then the fans won’t operate very well either. Be on the lookout for screeching noises that indicate a dry or worn out fan belt. You may also discover a blower motor problem by reduced or nonexistent airflow.
- Dirty evaporator coils: Refrigerant cycles through your evaporator coil where it is able to absorb heat. Over time that coil may collect a coating of dust and dirt (your filter can only do so much). When that happens, it hinders the ability of the refrigerant to absorb heat. This will lead to short cycling and it may cause the coil to ice over.
Obviously this is not a complete list of every single repair need that your air conditioner might run into. With that said, these are some important ones to keep on the alert for.
When you do notice that something isn’t quite right with your air conditioning system, whether it is a heat pump or a central AC unit, you should reach out for professional repair services as soon as you can. Even if you aren’t sure what the problem is, our technicians can arrive ready to identify and fix whatever the problem may be.
