The outdoor conditions in Cantonment, Florida, are hot and humid. As a result, homeowners are depending on their air conditioners to deliver cool and comfortable conditions inside. But if your AC system isn’t up for the task, it’ll start to show warning signs. Here’s why you need to schedule an air conditioner repair right away:
Your Air Conditioner is Blowing Warm Air
Do you feel warm air coming out of the supply vents in your home? First, check the thermostat. Ensure that you’ve set it to AUTO and COOL. To test it, set the thermostat lower than your home’s current temperature and check the supply vents. If they’re still blowing warm air, you might have an issue with your compressor or restricted airflow.
Your Air Conditioner Has Poor Airflow
Inadequate airflow is another common problem that can prevent your home from cooling to a comfortable temperature. It could be because of blocked ductwork or a problem with your air conditioner’s output efficiency. Check your air conditioner’s filter to see if it’s dirty. If it is, change it. You should change your filter every 30 to 90 days. If changing the filter doesn’t fix the issue, you might have a more severe problem like a malfunctioning motor.
Your Air Conditioner is Cycling Frequently
Your AC system should have consistent operating cycles. While your air conditioner might turn on more often during the hottest days of summer, you shouldn’t hear it constantly cycling on and off. If you notice your AC system cycling frequently, let a professional find and fix the issue. You might need a tune-up or an AC replacement.
