With temperatures finally starting to creep up in Charleston, it’s natural to assume your air conditioner is working harder. The two go hand-in-hand, and all is good until the hottest day of summer happens and you come home to notice that your air conditioner stopped running. What now?
You have come to rely on your air conditioner when the temps reach their highest, and we all know that summers in Charleston can offer some unexpectedly high temperatures, so why do we seem to always be caught off guard when they arrive? There’s no way around the increasing temperatures during the summer, but there are a couple things you can do to be sure your air conditioner is ready to meet the challenge. It’s difficult to get an exact idea of the health of your air conditioner if you don’t have routine maintenance performed, and this is even more pertinent to systems that are over 10 years old.
Even if your system is five years old or newer, if you haven’t had service performed, you could run the risk of having it stop running at the worst possible time, which seems to happen almost every time. It doesn’t matter if you’re heading out for a business trip or you’re planning on having company tomorrow, having your air conditioner go out never happens at a convenient time. So when the inevitable happens, it’s important to know that you have someone to turn to in the experts at Pardee Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning that you can count on 24/7 in Charleston.

While there are a seemingly endless number of issues that can come up with air conditioners, there are a couple that come up more than others, like:
- Lapsed Maintenance – Think of annual air conditioner service like getting an oil change for your car. Not only does it serve an essential purpose for performance, if you don’t do it you’ll start seeing other issues coming up because of it. Staying on top of annual AC system maintenance means that your system will get the attention it should have as well as helping stop problems before they become big issues. Plus, when you have maintenance completed you stand a better chance of growing your system’s efficiency and maybe even decreasing your energy expenses.
- Deteriorating Components – If your air conditioner isn’t being maintained regularly, there’s a chance that essential parts to your system’s function are slowly being negatively affected. Ranging from the compressor and fan to a variety of other pieces, if your system isn’t working at its finest, you run the risk of having the parts go out. A possible sign of this is if your air conditioner cycles on and off a lot, placing an unnecessary amount of strain on the pieces and possibly leading to system failure.
- Thermostat Problems – Thermostats play a larger role in your comfort than they are given credit for, and while it’s easy to view them as the place to adjust the temperature up and down, if they aren’t cared for, you could be feeling the effects. It can be something as easy as changing out your battery or it could be something more like an inappropriately calibrated thermostat sensor, but either way, it could change the performance of your AC.
Facing an AC repair doesn’t have to feel hard or like it’s the end of the world.
