High FPL Bill
by: Island A/C Team

Is your FPL bill climbing? At first you though "electricity must have gone up", but now it looks like you are paying electricity for two families? If that sounds like you, you probably have an appliance that is consuming electricity when it shouldn't.

While many different appliances can be responsible for high electricity usage, for example a water heater with a faulty shutoff valve could double your electric bill, but it would also increase your water bill tremendously at the same time. So if your water bill is not higher, the best suspect is the air conditioning.

The way it happens is usually on its own: the air conditioning unit is under-performing so it needs to run longer to perform the same job; or, it doesn't cool as well as it used to, so you keep turning the dial down. Either way, your air conditioner is running longer and more often which causes your electric bill to climb.

This situation usually happens gradually and most people are too busy to closely monitor the behavior of their air conditioning unit so a few months can pass before you start noticing anything wrong with the air conditioning.

The main causes for your air conditioning unit to run more often than it should usually are a poorly maintained system, faulty repair, improper installation, or an old system needing replacement.

Over the past 11 years Island Air Conditioning has helped thousands of residents from Boca Raton, Delray Beach, and the surrounding areas reduce their power bill. Island Air Conditioning's team of dedicated technicians will always make recommendations to ensure your air conditioning configuration is running as efficiently and affordably as possible.
