4 Signs That It Might Be Time For AC Maintenance

Floridians live in an enviable place with an average just shy of 240 sunny days each year. With temperatures often topping 90 degrees on the thermometers, Floridians also really appreciate their air conditioners. If you’re a homeowner in the Sunshine State, it’s wise to pay close attention to your HVAC system and monitor it for any signs of trouble. If your machine is doing any of these four things, it’s probably time to call air conditioning Palm City for a checkup.

Air Conditioning Air Flow 

One of the first signs that something is amiss with your AC is a change in air flow. This might present itself as less air flow, or flow of warm air. Either way, if you’re experiencing an air flow problem in your house, it’s a good idea to call air conditioning Palm City for an inspection of your machine and diagnosis of the problem.  

AC Noises

If your machine has started making noises that it didn’t used to, it’s probably another sign that you should call in the pros to check it out. If you hear banging, rattling, ticking, chattering, or rumbling, it’s best to turn off the machine until you can have it checked out. Small noises can easily become much bigger problems very quickly if you keep the system running.

Whole-house Electrical Problems

Another common problem that happens with air conditioning systems is issues that it causes with the whole-house circuit breaker. This can happen if the machine is attempting to pull more amps than the circuit breaker is rated for. If this happens, you shouldn’t just reset the breaker and try again. This quick fix can cause long term damage and might even cause a fire. 

If You Spot Leaks 

There are pretty much no reasons that your AC machine should leak fluids. If you spot any leaking fluids, it’s probably time to call in the pros for an inspection. Refrigerant is one of the more common fluids that you might discover leaking out of the machine. There are tell-tale signs that leaking refrigerant is a problem, and a knowledgeable and experienced AC pro will be able to identify the problem very quickly.
