On a warm day, the last thing anybody wants to worry about is the air conditioner going out. In warmer climates like Boca Raton, where AC can be essential for much of the year, this can be a particular concern.
Unfortunately, an AC unit is often taken for granted until something goes drastically wrong. Regular AC maintenance is neglected, air filters are not changed, minor repairs are not made, and it all adds up to a major catastrophe.
How Can Hiring a Qualified AC Company Prevent Major Issues?
First of all, it helps to have a good AC installation company, so the unit gets installed correctly.
A lot of problems come from poor installation. At Cousin's Air, Inc. we believe in getting the job done right the first time. Our HVAC company has a top-notch reputation and 5-star rating because we truly care about our clients. We know the importance of properly installing air conditioners, which is why our professional techs are all NATE certified.
What Are Some Common Air Conditioner Issues that Cousin's Air Can Resolve?
1. Frozen Coils
The inside coil of an AC unit can freeze if there is not good air flow around it. This can be caused by a dirty air filter, blocked ductwork or low refrigerant level. Once frozen, the AC unit will cease to blow cold air. It can be quite a mess getting the frozen coil to thaw out.
2. AC Unit Low on Refrigerant
Once a unit runs low on refrigerant, it will start to blow warm air. This can be caused by improper installation and charging or by leaks. A qualified technician will determine the cause and fix any leaks. Low refrigerant levels contribute to a whole host of problems with an AC unit.
3. Electrical Control Failure
Wear and tear or corrosion of wiring and terminals can cause many problems for the air conditioner. Eventually, it can give out and stop working entirely. Regular inspection prevents this from happening.
4. Drainage Problems
A properly functioning AC system will drip excess condensation that is carried out through a condensate line. But if this line becomes clogged, the water will overflow, which can cause all sorts of damage to the AC system and the home. In a humid climate, this is a more common problem because of a potential build-up of algae.
These are just a few of the problems that can necessitate AC repairs. In climates where the air conditioner is used more often, it is even more important to consult a high-quality AC repair company to ensure that there are no initial problems that can lead to unnecessary repairs down the road.
