Every now and again, disaster strikes, and in Florida, that disaster is often a failed air conditioning unit. Because of Florida’s extreme heat and humidity, a failed air conditioning unit truly is a disaster. Not only is the heat a danger to you and your families health, it can be devastating to your home or business. If a building is too warm, mold and mildew can slowly seeps in, potentially causing thousands of dollars worth of damage.
If you have a problem with your air conditioning unit, do not hesitate to contact our locally owned and operated company. If you think it may just be a small problem, here’s a list of common emergency problems that we routinely see—problems that we recommend be treated immediately.
When an air conditioner begins to leak, it is imperative to get it serviced immediately. The walls, floors, foundation, and even the roof of your building can be compromised, potentially causing thousands of dollars worth of damage. Water leaks that are near electrical outlets can also cause serious damage as electrical fires and electrocutions can potentially occur. Fortunately, air conditioner leaks are usually easy to spot and even easier to fix. The key is to make sure that you get the leak fixed as soon as you spot it.
One of the most common problems throughout Florida is an air conditioner that does not cool. Unfortunately, diagnosing the problem can often be a difficult thing to do, especially for a homeowner, but here are some things you may want to check. In some cases, an A/C unit that is not cooling is simply the result of a flipped circuit breaker. While we always recommend having one of our licensed HVAC contractors out to handle the circuit breakers, if you feel comfortable with it, you may be able to fix the problem with a simple flip of a circuit breaker. If the problem persists, you may want to check the outdoor air conditioner, making sure that any debris is cleared from the unit that may be obstructing airflow. If the problem persists even after debris is cleared, make sure to contact our office.
While not all air conditioning problems are emergencies, if you ever feel like there is one, do not hesitate to contact our office. It’s always better to be safe than sorry, and the longer you hesitate, the more risk you take when it comes to your air conditioning unit or your home. Remember, we’re only a call away!
