How to Spot a Blower Motor Problem

Monday, October 11th, 2021

No, we’re not talking about leaf blowers or a box fan, we’re talking about your air conditioner! Sometimes there can be a problem in your AC unit that has nothing to do with the refrigerant or the compressor, and instead the problem persists in your system’s blower motor. The blower is the component responsible for—as the name implies—blowing the cool air into your duct system and throughout your home. Without a blower, your AC would just cool off the air inside of it and it would never reach the rest of your home’s rooms.

How do you know if you’ve got a blower motor problem that requires AC repair in Gainesville, FL? Well, there are a few telltale signs that can point you in the right direction.

Keep reading, we’ll get into all the details about blower motor problems and why you need to call us if you suspect this problem is occurring in your own home.

Are You Having Trouble with Condensation?

Monday, October 12th, 2020

Sure, we all know what condensation is, but not every homeowner knows what it has to do with air conditioning. Condensation is one of the key processes that your system’s refrigerant goes through in order to disperse heat outside of your home. Condensation is also what happens to the moisture in your air when temperatures drop and the water vapor turns back into liquid form. Basically, some air conditioners have an easier time dealing with condensation than others.

Noticing the signs of condensate problems can be a good signal that your air conditioner needs AC repair in Newberry, FL.
