With temperatures finally starting to creep up in Charlotte, it’s natural to assume your air conditioner is going to work harder. The two go hand-in-hand, and all is dandy until the hottest day of summer happens and you come home to the realization that your air conditioner stopped operating. What now?
You have come to rely on your air conditioner when the temps reach their highest, and we all know that summers in Charlotte 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 higher temperatures during the summer, but there are a few things you can do to make sure your air conditioner is ready to take care of them. It’s difficult to get an accurate idea of the health of your air conditioner if you don’t have routine maintenance performed, and this is particularly applicable to systems that are 10 years old or older.
Even if your system is five years old or newer, if you haven’t had maintenance done, you may run the risk of having it quit working at the worst possible time, which seems to happen nearly every time. It doesn’t matter if you’re heading out for a work trip or you’re planning on having company tomorrow, having your air conditioner quit working never happens at a convenient time. So when the inevitable happens, it’s important to know that you have a resource in the team at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning that you can call on 24/7 in Charlotte.

While there are a seemingly endless number of issues that can come up with air conditioners, there are a handful that come up more than others, including:
- Lapsed Maintenance – Think of annual air conditioner service like getting an oil change for your car. Not only does it serve a critical purpose for performance, if you don’t do it you’ll start seeing other issues coming up because of it. Staying on top of regular AC system maintenance means that your system will get the attention it needs as well as helping uncover problems before they become more of an issue. Plus, when you have maintenance done you stand a better chance of boosting your system’s efficiency and maybe even decreasing your energy bills.
- Deteriorating Components – If your air conditioner isn’t being maintained annually, there’s a chance that essential parts to your system’s operation are slowly being negatively changed. Ranging from the compressor and fan to a variety of other components, if your system isn’t working at its best, 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 pressure on the parts and perhaps leading to system failure.
- Thermostat Problems – Thermostats play a greater role in your comfort than they are given credit for, and while it’s easy to view them as the place to set the temperature up and down, if they aren’t taken care of, you might be feeling the effects. It can be something as easy as switching out your battery or it could be something bigger like an improperly calibrated thermostat sensor, but either way, it could change the performance of your air conditioner.
