AC Repair

Here in Florida, it can be impossible to go without air conditioning! You should keep an eye on your air conditioning unit to look out for signs of necessary repairs. If you can identify signs of maintenance needs early, you can avoid needing emergency AC repair.

The first thing you should do to monitor for AC repair is be observant and get to know your unit. Pay attention to sounds, smells, and air flow. Often, warning signs of needed repairs will begin to appear as changes in these common operations. If you know your air conditioning unit well, you will be able to detect changes and report them to an AC contractor.

Here are a few of the top signs that you may need AC repair:

  • Your machine is making wheezing or squeaking noises.
  • You smell a musty smell coming from the AC unit.
  • Your machine has difficulty maintaining a temperature, or you will feel temperature swings in your home.
  • You notice excess humidity or dripping water.

If you notice any of these signs, contact an AC contractor immediately to discuss the needed AC repair. Acting promptly in response to these signs will save you from expensive emergency repairs later on. Consistent maintenance and repairs for your air conditioning unit will prolong the life of your unit and can save you time and money as you avoid costlier problems.
