Air conditioning in Florida is not a want, it’s a need. Florida is one of the hottest states in the country, practically all year round. It is important that you have a great air conditioner that runs superbly to help you beat the heat.
It’s imperative to be aware of when your air conditioner needs to be serviced or replaced. Most people would assume when cold air is not flowing, but it is much more than that. There are a couple things we want you to pay attention to when it comes to your air conditioning unit to make sure it’s running properly, and if it’s not, why you need to replace it.
Where’s the cold air?
This is the sign most people look for first. The room isn’t staying cool or the air that’s flowing is not cold no matter how high you turn it up.
There’s water where there shouldn’t be
Once you start noticing pools of liquid by your unit you have a problem. This can be a few things but mainly it means the refrigerant in the unit is starting to leak. This is something that needs to be fixed right away because it’s dangerous for you and your family.
What’s that sound?
Air conditioners usually have a nice hum to them to let you know they are running just fine. But once that sounds turns into something frightening it could mean you might have to replace the unit. Typical sounds heard are a grinding and squealing type of sound.
Where’s the air, period?
Cold air might not be the problem, no air is the problem. Little to no air flow could mean your unit is going because the compressor is failing. Another issue could be the ducts are getting backed up and this also is cause for concern
What’s that smell?
Air units should never smell bad. If it’s got a moldy, musty, and pungent type of smell that means the wiring could be bad.
