Get the Most Out of Your AC This Summer

Longer days and shorter nights can mean only one thing — summer has indeed arrived. In Florida, this also means the persistent hum of air conditioners in full blast as residents fight off the heat and humidity that characterize summer months in the Sunshine State.

You can maintain your air conditioning unit in good working order by keeping close tabs on its performance. Below are common air conditioning issues that you can easily check for and catch before they cause bigger problems.

Insufficient Air Flow

If you are experiencing weak or insufficient air flow from your unit, you could have a problem with ice forming on your copper refrigerant lines. Ice formation on your outdoor unit or on your indoor coil can obstruct air flow. Turn off your air conditioner for one or two hours to give the ice sufficient time to thaw completely.

If your unit continues to freeze up when you turn it on again, you many have a refrigerant leak. This is a more serious problem and it’s best to call a professional AC mechanic to troubleshoot this for you. As one of the leading AC companies in Orlando, we can easily solve this problem for you so you can stay comfortable and safe this summer.

No Air Blowing out of the AC

First, check the setting on your thermostat; chances are it’s set too high, which is why your air conditioner is not blowing out any air. This problem may also be due to a full reservoir on the condensate pump of your air conditioner. If neither is the case, the problem could be caused by faulty electrical wiring. Once again, it’s best to call an experienced AC technician to diagnose and address this problem.

Inadequate Cooling

This is a problem usually caused by a blocked or dirty condenser unit. Simply check your condenser and clean it out and remove any blockages that you can see. Insufficient cooling can also mean that your air conditioner is low on refrigerant or that the compressor is damaged and not working properly.
