With the weather in Fort Myers warming up, an AC repair is the last thing you want to deal with as you turn your air conditioner on for the first time this season. So as air conditioner season begins, keep in mind a few normal air conditioner concerns that you should be watching for when you turn on your system. These are a few that top the list of the most common AC problems we see around Fort Myers:
Letting your air conditioner operate over extended periods without being tuned-up is likely to only cause more issues as time passes. Whether it results in regular air conditioner service or you end up needing air conditioner replacement, problems can begin to snowball, negatively affecting the efficiency and operation of your system. If air filters and coils become dirty and stay dirty, it’s likely that it will impact the compressor and fans that are a part of the unit, causing a shorter lifespan. The answer to all these common AC problems is to have an AC tune-up done every spring.
When your air conditioner isn’t operating efficiently, the compressor and fan controls could wear out, or a variety other important components may be affected. When your system cycles on and off a lot there is unneeded stress placed on these internal components, causing improper operation or premature failure.
From a dead battery to a thermostat sensor that isn’t calibrated correctly, there are a host of thermostat problems that may also happen. If it has been a while since you last changed your thermostat batteries, it might be time to do so in order to avoid any problems with the settings you have currently. After all, your thermostat is responsible for conveying your comfort desires to the system, keeping your home comfortable for you on the hottest of Fort Myers days. Another option is to upgrade your thermostat to a more energy efficient programmable or ‘smart’ model.
