Exploring The Importance Of Air Conditioner Maintenance

Hello, my name is Darby Aldrich. I would like to talk to you about the importance of maintaining your air conditioning system. When I moved to a hot climate, I did not realize how vital having a running air conditioner was for living comfortably. When the unit just stopped working one day, the temperature inside the house rivaled the piping hot weather outdoors. We had to go to the community center to keep the kids from feeling sick. While we were gone, we had a local HVAC contractor fix the unit. She let us know that some simple maintenance tasks would prevent that situation in the future. I will use this site to closely explore those tasks in great detail. I hope you can use the information to keep your air conditioner running like new. Thanks.

How To Tell When Your Air Conditioner Needs To Be Serviced


A cool home is refreshing, invigorating, and inviting. Few things can give you a much-needed burst of energy like stepping into the house on a hot day and immediately feeling cold air wash all over your body. You are given a welcoming reminder that you are now in your castle and are free to relax and unwind. However, when your air conditioner (AC) goes out, you get the exact opposite experience. Members of the household become cranky as they struggle to battle it out in the heat while you wait for a technician to repair the problem. Rather than waiting until you're forced to endure harsh conditions, here are a few signs that your AC system could be on the verge of a meltdown.

Foul Odors Rule The Air In Your Home

If you're almost religious about cleaning your home, opening the windows, and keeping the air fresheners on deck, you definitely wouldn't expect to be constantly battling bad odors. When your home doesn't smell so good it can almost make it seem like the place is somehow dirty, even when everything is squeaky clean. It's tempting to try to mask the odors with candles or incense if you think you have exhausted all of your options and still can't find the source of the foul fragrance. Just when you're about ready to throw in the towel, look no further than your AC unit.

It's possible that bacteria have started to grow in your central AC device. Letting a skilled technician inspect your unit and give it a thorough cleaning could make it possible for you to crank up the AC without having to pinch your nose because of the scent!

Inconsistent Airflow

You should also pay very close attention to the consistency of the airflow in your house. Does it feel like some rooms are much colder or warmer than others, even though you have the AC thermostat set to the same temperature in every space? This could be a sign that your unit needs to be serviced by a professional. If the compressor or ventilator is starting to falter this could lead to inconsistent airflow. Having these parts replaced could fix the problem before you know it.

Once you notice the red flags, it's time to do something about it. Book an appointment with an air conditioner specialist so they can work their magic and get you back up and running.
