For at least 72 days, the temperature soared into the 80s in the past year. When you consider the heat and humidity, Florida can be downright toasty.
It’s why Floridians take such good care of their AC system and worry yearly about their AC lifespan. Nobody wants to find themselves without AC on a warm Florida day.
Are you worried your AC unit may need some attention from a professional? Are you worried you need an air conditioner repair? Keep reading to learn what to do next.
Signs You Need a Repair
As the weather prepares to warm up, you want your AC running at its best. So, when you turn it on and things don’t seem right, you know it’s time for an AC check-up.
Like many things around the house, the AC will give clues when things aren’t quite right. Then you know it’s time for a repair.
Blowing Warm Air
One sign you have an issue is that your AC isn’t blowing cool air into your home. It might feel like warm air coming through the vents.
This could show a refrigerant leak or a compressor issue. Both require a professional to look at them.
Making Strange Noises
Like most appliances in your home, you get used to the normal day-to-day sounds they make, your air conditioner included. You may find that suddenly, it feels like your AC unit is making funny noises.
This can indicate a loose part or something rubbing incorrectly.
Generally speaking, your AC unit shouldn’t smell funny when running. If you’re getting unusual odors, it could mean a few things.
You may have a wire or insulation burning. If you have a musty smell, your AC unit could have a leak causing mold to grow.
Your air conditioner not only cools your home but also pulls the humidity from your home as part of the cooling process.
If your home suddenly feels very humid even when the AC is running for a while, it might be time to check it out.
Moisture Around the AC Unit
Another issue that may indicate a repair is needed is if you start seeing liquids around the perimeter of your AC unit.
It could be something simple like a drainage tube being blocked or loose. You might also have a refrigerant leak, impacting your AC’s ability to cool.
When to Consider an AC Replacement
You might wonder when you decide repairing your AC unit no longer makes sense. Maybe the cost of an AC repair over and over is no longer logical.
If your AC unit needs expensive repairs seasonally, investing in a new unit might make more sense.
Likewise, if you’re facing some repairs and know your AC unit has reached its predicted life span, considering a replacement might make more sense.
Finally, you might decide you want to invest in a more energy-efficient AC unit. While the cost is an investment, the savings help pay for the unit over time.
