Reasons Why Your AC is Under the Weather

Not sure what’s going on with your air conditioner? Here are a few common causes of trouble:

You Haven’t Had Maintenance

Did you schedule your maintenance appointment this year? We’d hope that the answer is a confident, “yes!” but maybe spring came and went, and your chances of having a well-maintained air conditioner went with it. Don’t worry—it’s something that happens to the best of us. Now we won’t lie to you, it’s a little late to schedule a maintenance appointment but that doesn’t mean that you still can’t pick up the phone and call us. As they say, it’s better late than never and, as we say, better a maintenance appointment than a repair appointment!

You Haven’t Replaced Your AC Filter

When was the last time you replaced your air conditioner’s filter? If you’ve gone the entire summer so far without replacing this filter then you’re bound to have a problem on your hands. Your filter is what keeps your air conditioner clean and functioning without incident. A dirty air conditioner can lead to low airflow or lukewarm air because of the blockages. Replacing your air conditioner at least once a season (more if you really put your air conditioner to work) will help you keep your air conditioner up and running the way that it should.

You’ve Got Duct Problems

We’re realistic here at our company. We’re professional HVAC contractors that really care about our craft, but we’re not expecting you to share this interest with us. We know that you’re probably not up at night losing sleep over the quality of your ductwork. You probably don’t even give this system much thought. We’re not passing judgment or blaming you for anything here—that’s why we’re the air conditioning technicians! If you notice that your air conditioner isn’t blowing cool air, the problem could be because of your ductwork. Clogged ductwork is a problem that tends to snowball out of control before you even realize what’s happening. Calling us for air duct cleaning services will help you avoid a lot of trouble.

It can be difficult to get the proper air conditioning services this late into summer. If you need a great team, contact Comfort First Heating and Cooling, Inc. today to schedule an appointment.
