Things to avoid when your AC is not working in Florida

Things to avoid when your AC is not working in Florida


It’s hot in the South, especially when your AC goes out all of a sudden. We get it. People get desperate from the heat and they figure it’s next to impossible to get an AC technician out on short notice as it seems impossible. Well, that is not true at Whaley Heating & Air Conditioning.

Very often we see a lot of “home remedies”  being applied to tackle the heat while they’re waiting for our a technician. While these fixes may provide a little relief in initial stages, however, some of them can be quite dangerous to play with.

Here are some things you need to avoid while waiting for professional help:

Taking a Sledgehammer to the Unit

This never works. Don’t do it on a serious note.


Duct Taping the Lines Back Together

Most people think that they can use a duct tape to get the unit running & do a temporary AC Repair. A common issue we see is AC lines and pipes that have been severed by a weed wacker. Very often, If someone realizes the mistake and tapes it back up again then calls us out. It’s cool.

However, mistakes do happen but don’t pretend your dog did it. Their lack of opposable thumbs and fur-covered paws make using duct tape very difficult. It’s completely unsafe for canines no matter how much Rover wants to help to get it fixed.
