Summer has officially been here for a few weeks now, although to Florida residents it may as well be summer all year long! At least, that’s what it feels like sometimes, right? As such, you certainly don’t want to be stuck with a malfunctioning air conditioner. This is why preventive maintenance is so essential.
However, even a well maintained air conditioning system can run into problems. These issues will vary in terms of severity, but no matter what’s going on you can trust in our professionals to fix the issue. Keep reading to learn more about 3 common air conditioning issues you should keep an eye out for this summer.
Tripped Circuit Breakers
Because of the amount of power it consumes, your AC system will likely need its own circuit in your electrical system. Whole-house air conditioners use a good amount of electricity, and of course require a great deal of use. A tripped circuit breaker could mean that your AC system is too large for your electrical panel, or it could mean that your electrical panel needs an upgrade.
High Utility Bills
Have you noticed that your energy bills have skyrocketed, despite average AC use? This could certainly signal that something is wrong with your air conditioner. You may have a duct breach that is causing you to lose air, or you could even have a refrigerant leak that is preventing your air conditioner from cooling your home properly, while making the actual AC system work harder than it should have to.
Ice on the System
Despite what you may believe, there is no benefit to ice developing on your air conditioning system. Yes, it is the responsibility of your AC system to cool your home down, but ice is not a normal part of this process. This most often develops due to a refrigerant leak, so be sure to have it checked out by a professional as soon as you notice the issue.
