While we have not yet made our way into the most oppressively hot time of the year, there is no denying that temperatures are already climbing to relatively uncomfortable levels. If you are planning on keeping your home cool efficiently and reliably this summer, then you hopefully have invested in a good air conditioning system, and have had that system installed by a skilled, trained professional. Furthermore, you should be keeping up with your system’s annual maintenance needs, lest it fail to provide you with the dependable performance that you deserve. Even if you have taken all of the right steps, though, the fact is that you will eventually require air conditioning repairs in Tampa, FL.
The best way in which to ensure that any problems with your air conditioner do as limited an amount of damage as possible is to schedule prompt air conditioning repairs the moment that you realize that there is a problem. Of course, in order to do so, you must also learn to recognize the signs that your system is in trouble. Some of the more common ones are listed below.
- Ice on the system, to the surprise of some, is not a sign that your air conditioner is just doing a really good job of cooling. Instead, it indicates that you may have a refrigerant leak, or that your air filter may be clogged up. Ice on the system is never a good sign, so be sure to contact us if you notice its presence.
- Increasing cooling costs may also indicate that your system is in trouble. Now, you are obviously going to pay more the more that you run your air conditioner. Considering how much we use our ACs in this area, though, you probably have a basic idea of what your general cooling costs are. If you notice a serious spike with no clear reason, schedule repairs right away.
- Loud, unfamiliar sounds are another sign that your air conditioner may be in trouble. Your AC is inevitably going to make some noise as it operates. It should be grinding or screeching, though, or rattling uncontrollably. Don’t ignore these sounds just because the system is blowing cool air. Doing so will likely lead to serious damages.
