Want to avoid melting in the Florida summer? With temperatures well into the 80’s, you want to be sure that your AC system is fully prepared to withstand the heat. Preventative and routine AC maintenance is essential for continued performance and reliability. Here are some of the most common AC problems you can avoid with regular care.

You battle with poor indoor air quality.

In the cooler months, your AC system essentially enters a dormant stage. Unfortunately, nature won’t cease to carry on. The wind can be responsible for transferring dust, debris, and other allergens onto your system’s coils and fans. These particles now have a free pass to travel through your entire system and enter your home.

To reduce the number of allergens and pollutants in your home, it’s important to replace your air filter regularly. If you live in a particularly dusty area or have fur-bearing pets, for instance, you should change your filters more frequently.

Your AC is blowing warm air.

Your air conditioning system uses a liquid coolant to flow through the coils and cool the air that travels over these coils. This liquid needs to be replenished regularly to ensure optimal performance. If you make the small investment for annual maintenance and tune-up services, your professional will check these ahead of time and your system won’t be blowing hot air.

It’s important to know that your AC won’t stop working just because there are low coolant levels. Low fluid levels will simply make your system work harder than normal, which can accelerate wear and tear. If you notice your air conditioning isn’t quite as cold as it used to be, call a professional to check coolant levels immediately.

Your AC system is constantly running.

It’s not uncommon for the Florida heat to make your air conditioner run longer or more often. However, a system that runs constantly is an indication that something is wrong. There are a variety of factors that may be the cause, including a faulty thermostat. To prevent further damages to your system, call your AC professional to pinpoint the problem and make repairs.
