Ice on the System
You may think that there is some benefit to having ice on your air conditioning system. After all, is it not the responsibility of this system to cool your home down to a more comfortable temperature? The fact of the matter, though, is that icing on an AC system could indicate problems with refrigerant leaks, insufficient airflow, or other operational issues. Don’t be fooled by the cold nature of ice; when it pops up on your home cooling system, it is always a sign of trouble.
Your air conditioner will likely require its own circuit in your electrical system. Whole-house air conditioners use a fair amount of electricity, and are in use quite regularly in this part of the country. Of course, you may find that your AC is tripping your circuit breaker frequently regardless. There are a few reasons for this; perhaps your system is just too large for your electrical system, or maybe your electrical panel just is in poor shape. Whatever the source of the problem may prove to be, it is vital that the situation is righted as soon as possible.
High Energy Costs
If you fail to schedule routine air conditioning maintenance, if your system is compromised in any way, or if you have an improperly sized air conditioning system, then there is just no way in which you can cool your home efficiently. Living in this part of the country means that you must have an air conditioner that you can use frequently, reliably. Don’t let the cost of doing so put your comfort at risk.
