Osceola County is located in Central Florida. Central Florida is a region that is, obviously, in the middle of Florida. It is a very humid and hot subtropical environment. The temperatures in the summer are higher than the U.S. average. The summer temperatures range from the low 90 degrees Fahrenheit to the mid-90s. The humidity is so high that it generally keeps the temperature from ranging too high above the mid-90s and very rarely does the temperature climb over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. In this way, the humidity acts as a buffer that keeps the temperature in the nineties. However, it is not completely beneficial. The high humidity forces the heat index well over 110 degrees Fahrenheit.
When temperatures start climbing into those areas, it becomes very difficult to keep your house cool and comfortable. Many different methods work to an extent, but an air conditioner is the most reliable source of comfort. However, in the subtropical environment of Central Florida, air conditioners are sometimes pushed to their limits. Due to the stress placed on air conditioners every summer, AC repair in Osceola County is extremely good. The specialists who work in subtropical environments have to be very good at their jobs because demand is so high.
Not Blowing Cold Air
One of the most common problems an air conditioner will experience is blowing lukewarm air. This can be caused by a few different things. Before you call for an AC repair specialist, you should troubleshoot the problem yourself. First, you should check to see if the thermostat is turned to the “fan” setting. This setting will blow air, but it does not engage the cooling feature. If the thermostat is set to “fan,” you should change it to “cool” or “automatic.” This will engage the unit. If your air conditioner is set to “cool” but it’s still not blowing cold air, it might be frozen.
When you run your air conditioner at low temperatures for hours and hours, it can sometimes freeze up and stop blowing cold air. If the air conditioner was working earlier but has since stopped, you should turn it off for a couple hours. When you turn it back on, it should be working again. If it’s still not working, then you might want to call for AC repair.
Turns On and Off Rapidly
Another common problem is an air conditioner that turns on and off rapidly. This could be the result of several different things. Your thermostat might be broken. You should troubleshoot it based on the instructions in the owner’s manual. If those steps do not resolve your problem, you might have a clogged air filter. You should open the filter chamber and see if it is dirty. If you have not changed it in a while, it is almost definitely going to need replacing.
