The temperature outside is soaring. Although it’s not yet officially summer the Florida heat would make you think differently. One of the only things you can do to avoid the heat is to stay indoors for the better part of the day. However, this can soon turn into a nightmare if your AC stops functioning. Did you know you can avoid many AC problems and costly repairs by simply following a regular maintenance schedule? Here is a list of three easily preventable issues:
1. Untimely Damage to the Unit
When your AC components start deteriorating, it results in the unit’s reduced performance. Without professional servicing, some parts of the AC may require frequent replacement, adding more to your repair costs.An AC’s parts or accessories may not last a lifetime, but you can always slow down the damage with the help of a timely upkeep. We will be happy to help you in this regard. Our technicians can fine-tune your cooling unit, making it function efficiently so that it has fewer problems. This way, you will save your hard-earned money in the long run, thus compensating for the maintenance costs. You can also avoid expenses on frequent repairs throughout the year.
2. Water Leakage
Homeowners often mistake AC water leaks for plumbing leakage. If you too are in the habit of doing so, you must stop now. Based on the positioning of your unit’s condensate line and inside unit, water seepage may damage your kitchen cabinets, attic, or any other areas of your house. As you can guess, any such damage calls for an exorbitant repair cost that you can avoid with periodic maintenance. Water collects on an AC’s inside coil and drains outside. However, if the drain is blocked due to dust and debris, the water finds no way to escape. Our AC technicians will inspect and clean the condensate drain during their visits.
3. Frozen or Damaged Evaporator Coils
The refrigerant in an AC gets rid of the warm air, releasing it outdoors. During this process, it cools a coil that in turn brings down the temperature. However, this coil is not supposed to freeze because a frozen coil affects cooling performance. The reason behind a frozen coil could be a faulty fan motor, low refrigerant, or a dirty air filter. We inspect all of these during our routine maintenance servicing so that you never have to face such problems.
Surviving a Florida summer without a properly functioning AC is hard. However, you need to take care of your unit so that it does not let you down when you need it the most.
