AC on the Fritz? You May Need One Of These Repairs Done
As most Florida residents are already well aware, summer is not the season that you want your air conditioner to start acting up. The summer heat is hard enough to handle outside and not being able to come home and enjoy some sweet, cool air conditioning is enough to drive even the most heat-resistant person bonkers. To help our readers out this summer, we will be using today’s post to discuss some of the most common air conditioner repair issues and what you need to do in order to ensure that these repairs do not turn into a full fledged air conditioner replacement.

Don’t Let Your Air Conditioner Fail You
Your air conditioner puts up with a lot. Pumping cool air into your home day-in and day-out during the summer puts quite a strain on this essential piece of machinery and, occasionally, some issues pop up that keep your AC from performing as well as it could. Below, we have listed some of the most common repairs you may have to perform to ensure that your AC is healthy and happy.
- Low Refrigerant: If you’ve noticed that your air conditioner is not putting out cold air like it used to, your AC unit may be low on refrigerant. Refrigerant is the chemical used by your air conditioner to cool the air as it enters the unit. It is important to note, however, that if your air conditioner is low on refrigerant, 90 percent of the time that means that your air conditioner also has a leak in the line. If your air conditioner is low on fluid, we suggest that you call us at North Central Florida Air Conditioning Inc. today and let us come have a look at it. While a leak may not be present, it is better to be safe than sorry.
- Faulty Wiring: If you’ve noticed that your lights flicker when your air conditioner kicks on or you have noticed that your AC unit keeps tripping a circuit breaker, this could mean that the wiring in your unit has become compromised. Faulty wiring is a serious issue and not only make your air conditioner less efficient but can become a potential fire hazard if left unattended.
- Frozen Coil: If your air conditioner starts to experience issues with airflow or output, the issue could be a frozen coil. Your air conditioner’s coil will become frozen if there are issues with airflow flowing into and out of the unit which can be caused by dirty air filters or obstructed duct work. If your air conditioner’s coil has become frozen, we suggest that you give us a call today to schedule a maintenance check. While the issue could be as simple as a dirty air filter, clogged ductwork is a problem that most individuals are not equipped to handle.
