You most likely don’t think too much about your air conditioner until it’s not working suddenly. Or until your electric bills are suddenly sky-high, even though you haven’t moved the thermostat.
Your air conditioner draws in ambient air to cool and expels warm air as it works. But it can promptly overheat if it can’t get enough surrounding air or flush out hot air.
An AC system that runs hot generally won’t last as long. And it probably will cost more to cool your home.
Osceola Air, LLC can help when your air AC isn’t functioning properly. Or keeping your house comfortable enough.
Space Guidelines for Air Conditioners
So how much room does your air conditioner really need?
Here’s what we recommend:
While doing yardwork, keep your unit out of contact with grass clippings and leaves. Yard scraps can congest your air conditioner and cause it to overheat.
How to Find Out if Your Air Conditioner is Overheating
Turn the air conditioner on.
Check the temperature a few inches from the coil. This is the metallic grate that surrounds your unit.
Measure the temperature 10 feet away.
If the temperatures are the same, your system is working properly.
If the temperature is hotter near the coil, your system may have an issue.
