Common Air Conditioning Problems and How to Prevent the Need for Air Conditioning

Although we can easily handle any necessary repair to your air conditioning
unit, we want you to understand how to take care of your unit properly
and prevent issues from happening. Read below for the most common problems
we see and how you can prevent them from the air conditioning
repair experts at Del-Air:

The unit is running nonstop:

In Florida where temperatures stay warm most of the year, it is not uncommon
for air conditioning units to run quite a bit. However, they should never
run constantly. Therefore, if you notice your unit running nonstop, you
should check the air filters in your home to make sure the unit is able
to pull enough air. You can prevent airflow issues by regularly cleaning
and changing your air filters. Of course, a constantly running unit could
also indicate a bad thermostat, which means you would need to hire a professional
to replace it.

The air is not cold enough:

If you notice that the air coming out of your vents is not cold enough
to make your home reach its optimal temperature setting, your unit could
be low on coolant. This is not an issue you can fix yourself. However,
you can avoid the problem altogether by having your unit tuned up and
serviced on an annual basis. We offer this service in addition to our
air conditioning repair services.

The two problems listed above are just a few of the hundreds of possible
problems you may encounter with your air unit. Regardless of the issue,
a regular service can often times catch the problem before it becomes
an expensive repair, and in some cases, prevent it altogether. Therefore,
to avoid costly repairs, your best bet as a homeowner is to schedule regular
maintenance visits at least once a year.
