Now that summer is almost upon us in St. Petersburg, Largo, and Palm Harbor, you will want to start thinking about AC repair. Don’t get caught without cold air on an 90 degree day! Your air conditioner is designed to be quiet and to run efficiently; and many factors will lead to you experiencing AC problems. This is why it’s always a good idea to know what clues are signaling the need for repair. This way, you can call a technician and have a small problem fixed, instead of waiting until the entire unit breaks down. Most repairs are very simple, and will save you time and money in the long run.
- Loud noises: As mentioned earlier, these units are designed to run quietly, so the first sign of a needed repair would be loud, unusual noises. Some noises can be subtle, while others can be screeching, so you always want to be aware of them in order to call a technician for inspection as soon as possible.
- Low airflow or lack of cooling: With weakened airflow, it may be as simple as the need to replace the air filter or coils, or something much more serious. If you know the coils and filter are already clean, and yet there is still low airflow, you should call a professional as soon as you can. The lack of cooling could signal an internal cooling system problem, which will require a professional’s assistance as well.
- Higher energy bill: This may be the easiest to notice, since you should be aware of your average utility bill. If you have not increased your usage, but notice higher bills, your AC unit is probably working harder than usual to give the same amount of air.
If you experience one of these signs, or anything else out of the ordinary, you’ll want to call a professional for AC repair in St. Petersburg, Largo, and Palm Harbor as soon as possible.
