Will your system survive the heat? Don’t let the hot summer heat ruin your day!
There are a lot of components to your air conditioning system that work very well together. What happens if something within one of these components goes wrong and your system breaks down and you’re left without air conditioning?
No one knows with certainty when a breakdown of your air conditioning system will occur. But as professionals in this business, we know that the worst and most common times are on a very hot day. The high use of the season can cause extra strain that leads to untimely breakdowns. The good news?
We also know several factors to watch for that could help you better prepare and avoid interruption of your cooling comfort during the hottest days of the summer.
Lack of maintenance – Especially in hot summers like the one predicted for our area, lack of maintenance can lead to inconvenient repairs. Dirt in the system is the number one cause of the repair issues that we see. We make sure you get your system cleaned, checked and serviced annually to prolong equipment life and keep it running efficiently.
Age of system – Depending on the equipment and your home’s air conditioning usage, the lifespan of an air conditioning system can be around 15 years. Signs of age can begin to show earlier if you’re experiencing frequent repairs, or later, if you’ve taken great care of your equipment through regular maintenance.
System problem – Your complex air conditioning system creates amazing cooling comfort, but it also contains components that could malfunction. Some of the problems you could experience include coolant leaks, broken motors, clogged air filters, bent fan blades and blown capacitors. There could also be an issue with your thermostat.
