Several weeks back, we mentioned how important it was for you to schedule your next AC maintenance appointment. This is the best way to ensure that it is ready to operate as efficiently and effectively as possible throughout the summer. The official start of summer may be right around the corner, but unless your AC has completely broken down, it’s not too late to schedule that tune-up.

Regardless of whether you have scheduled this or not, however, old age can play a factor in repair needs, and it’s always a good idea to know how to spot the need for repairs in your system. One of the biggest signs failing air conditioners make is noisy operation. But what noises are we referring to, and why should you care? Read on!

Here Comes the Humidity: Beat the Heat This Summer!

With summer well on its way, temperatures already rising, and uncertainty around just how much we’ll be able to be out and about this coming season, it’s time to prepare for one of the most uncomfortable climate experiences we have here in Georgia—humidity.

If you’re wondering if an air conditioner helps dehumidify your air, yes, it does. But that is not what your air conditioner is designed for! In fact, humidity can make you feel warmer and adjust your thermostat lower so that the compressor runs longer. This means you’re more likely to experience breakdowns and it’s more likely you’ll shorten the air conditioner’s lifespan.

The solution? A whole-house dehumidifier!

The last thing you need this summer is to be stuck in an uncomfortable living space, right? Well, if you do want optimal comfort and quality of life, then you need to take proper care of your home’s central air conditioning system. This appliance is one of the most specialized systems in your home and requires years of training and extensive experience to know how to properly work with.

Just like your vehicle or any other large and important piece of equipment, your air conditioning system needs routine maintenance to keep operating as it should. It’s a lot easier (and more affordable) to address problems with this system while they’re still minor, rather than waiting until they are an emergency—and maintenance lets that happen.

Even the best air conditioners on the market have a lifespan of about 10-15 years. Help your household get the most out of your system by staying on top of not only maintenance, but repair needs too.

With the current state of the world, homeowners across the nation and beyond are very concerned about their health, and for obvious reasons. While we, of course, cannot make any specific recommendations regarding our current health crisis, we urge you to monitor updates from the CDC and WHO.
