Boca Raton AC Repair Services
Florida is famous for sunny skies, warm seas and college students descending over the spring break. It is also known for high “feels like” temperature due to humidity that averages in the high eighties. This makes air-conditioning a must in the area, especially in southern Florida.
However, like all machines, air conditioners too need regular maintenance and in spite of that, can fail. The reasons for air-conditioning failing are many, and some of the most common ones are low refrigerant levels, faulty wiring, malfunctioning of the outdoor unit and drainage problems.
The refrigerant in your air conditioning unit is responsible for absorbing the heat from the air inside your home. If the refrigerant level drops, the machine will not be able to cool the air to the temperature you set even though the air conditioning has been running a while.
The compressor is the most important part of an air conditioner as it circulates the coolant between the indoor and outdoor units. If it malfunctions, your air conditioning will fail.
The condenser has a fan that helps in dissipating the heat pulled from inside the house, and if this outdoor unit gets clogged with dust, it can’t function optimally, leading to a loss in cooling. Sometimes, the motor of the fan breaks down and needs to be repaired or replaced.
If the air filter within the indoor air conditioning unit becomes clogged with dust, the cooling gets affected and the filter needs to be cleaned.
Dirty filters and poorly functioning fans cause a build up of ice on the cooling coils. This not only results in a warmer room, but also in ice chips or water dripping from the indoor unit.
There are times the indoor unit of the air conditioner will emit alarming noises similar to grinding or buzzing. This could be caused by a slipped motor belt, broken motor bearings or even a bad fan relay.
There are many other reasons for a malfunctioning AC unit, and while some, like the filter cleaning, are DIY projects, most of the problems need to be resolved by technicians trained in the working of air conditioners. Untrained people should not attempt to fix electrical problems even if online videos say it is safe and easy to do so.
