Regardless of where you are in this booming metro hot spot, one thing remains the same in any town you go - the heat.

As a homeowner, you need to be on the lookout for warning signs which could indicate that there is a problem with your cooling system. If the unit doesn't come on at all, comes on sporadically, isn't cooling all rooms or levels of the home like it should, is leaking, or is making odd noises, then you likely have a problem on your hands that needs to be looked at and taken care of before your family has to suffer in a miserably hot and uncomfortable home. Our trusted AC repair contractor will be able to quickly diagnose the problem with your unit and provide the needed repair work, typically all in the same day that you call us. We also offer emergency AC repair for times when the unit stops working in the middle of the night, or on the hottest day of the year!
Many people ask us what they can do to prevent future problems with this important HVAC unit. One of the best and easiest things you can do to prevent repair after repair is to properly maintain the unit. Listed below are some helpful AC maintenance tips from HowStuffWorks.
1. Clean the evaporator. This is located above the furnace in the plenum. The evaporator may not be easy to get to, but if it is, be sure that you give it a thorough cleaning at least one time a year to be sure that dirt and debris don't get built up and prevent the system from running as efficiently as it could.
2. Maintain the condenser. This is located, typically, outside of the home in a metal box that has grilles on the side. This unit often gets clogged with dust, leaves, lawn clippings, and other types of outdoor debris. Clean the oil on the inside of the unit with a commercial cleaner, which will be available at most refrigerant supply stores. Follow instructions carefully and let the coil air dry when you are finished.
3. Checking the refrigerant. Coolant or "refrigerant" in your AC system is known as Freon. This is what helps the unit to keep your home cool and comfortable. When there is not enough, it may need to be re-charged or more may need to be added. This is something that a professional will need to handle. If your home feels warmer than it should, issues with the Freon are likely the cause of the problem.
