Keeping things cool and comfortable indoors is an absolute necessity for residents of Fort Myers, Florida. With temperatures in the 80’s and 90s for the majority of months during the year, making sure your AC unit is in good working order can help you avoid breakdowns during the hottest parts of the year in our area. Here are some of the early warning signs that your AC may be in need of repair.
High Levels of Humidity
Cooling units typically remove a significant percentage of moisture from the air during their normal operation. If your home feels overly humid, it could be a sign that your system is not functioning properly. Calling a heating and cooling professional to take a look at your system can often help you to identify the problem before it results in a complete breakdown and a large repair bill.
If your current system is more than 10 years old, the experts at ENERGY STAR recommend replacing it with a new, more efficient system that has earned the ENERGY STAR qualification. This can not only reduce the risk of breakdowns but can allow you to save money on your cooling bills each month.
Noises coming from your indoor or outdoor unit could be warning signs of an impending AC repair bill. In some cases, investing in duct replacement can reduce or eliminate noise while ensuring the most efficient operation for your HVAC system. The U.S. Department of Energy cites improper operation as one of the most common reasons for air conditioning breakdowns. By making sure your ductwork is leak-free and appropriately sized for your home, you can reduce the risk of repair bills all year around.
