You don’t want to experience a hot summer day without air conditioning, so there are a few tips you should follow to ensure you keep your air conditioning running at its peak potential.

Get your refrigerant levels checked yearly!

Refrigerant is the lifeline of your air conditioner. It is used to cool down the indoor coils that remove the heat in the air in your home. If your refrigerant level runs low, your air conditioner will have a hard time cooling down your home and can cause major damage to the compressor. If you have had your air conditioner for a long time without getting the refrigerant levels checked you can cause unrepairable damages to your components thus requiring the installation of an entire new system. If your AC seems to be having a hard time keeping your home cool act quickly by having a professional HVAC technician from Affordable Service inspect it.

Get regular AC service

Just like any other appliance in your life, your air conditioner needs regular maintenance and service to keep it running smoothly and extend its life. Having your unit serviced bi-annually at minimum by a professional technician from Affordable Service will ensure your air conditioner is running at highest potential when your family needs it most.

Check your thermostat

Some AC problems are as simple as a problem with a thermostat. If your thermostat is old, it may not be doing a good job of regulating the temperature of your AC unit. If your home seems warmer than what the thermostat says or if the unit kicks on and off a lot, it may be time for a new, thermostat. Affordable Service can install a new digital programmable or “smart” thermostat for you that will ensure better operation of your AC unit.
