Air Conditioner (AC) Upgrade or Replacement
Isn’t it ironic how all winter long you crave the warmth of summer, then when it gets here you run for the air conditioner? And isn’t it sad when the AC doesn’t blast you with that winter-cool air you want?
ACs are complicated gadgets, so having an AC professional check it out to make sure it’s in optimum condition is always a good idea, whether it’s for late-season heatwaves or next summer.
Here are a few potential problems you may want a professional to check:
Refrigerant leaks: Your AC needs a refrigerant to carry heat from your house to the outside. If a leak occurs and this chemical is low or gone, you’ll be sweating faster than you can say summer heatwave.
Inadequate insulation: The more your house heats up, the harder your AC works to cool it back down. So insulating your home is a way to help Mr. Cool do his job.
Faulty component: Your AC has many different and specialized components, like fans, coils, filters and motors. It’s a good idea to have these checked by a professional to make sure they’re in good working order – or a late heatwave might discover these issues for you, and you probably won’t enjoy that.
Electrical problems: ACs use a lot of electricity and have a lot of wiring. And this wiring doesn’t particularly get along well with heat. So, making sure all connections are clean and wiring is intact is a very cool thing to do.
