With August upon us, homeowners throughout the area know that there is some serious heat yet to come. We are not even quite in the home stretch of the summer’s heat, truth be told, and this is not a point at which you can start to ignore potential signs of trouble with your air conditioning system in Columbia. Of course, we’d also argue that there is never a point at which you should be ignoring such warning signs, but that’s beside the case.
That being said, not all air conditioning problems are quite as serious as others. Any and all warning signs should be taken seriously, because even those that seem “minor” could be indicative of very serious issues. Many AC problems actually share warning signs, muddying the waters further, so your best bet is to have the situation assessed by a trained professional regardless of what the actual symptoms may be. You certainly would not want something like a refrigerant leak to go undiagnosed, after all.

There are a lot of potential problems that you may encounter with your air conditioning system over the course of the cooling season. We would love to tell you otherwise, but our honesty and integrity are far too important to us to stretch the truth in such matters. No air conditioner, even when expertly manufactured, flawlessly installed, and meticulously maintained, is going to be 100% problem free. Of course, that doesn’t mean that you’ll see every problem coming, or even that you’ll realize certain problems were possible!
Case in point: The Legend of the Leaking Air Conditioner. Now, you’ve probably heard that refrigerant leaks are a major air conditioning problem—we will certainly have a blog written on that soon, so be sure to check back—but you may not have heard that air conditioners in Columbia, MD can leak water, as well. And the fact of the matter is that it’s not really a “leak” in the way you may be thinking of it. Read on for some much-needed clarification.

Regular maintenance of any air conditioning system is an absolute necessity. If your air conditioner is not well-maintained, then there is no way in which you can hope for your AC to function at peak performance and efficiency levels. That being said, you also need to keep in mind that your annual air conditioning maintenance really needs to be completed by skilled, trained professionals—mostly, anyway. We say mostly because there actually are a few vital maintenance tasks that you can handle on your own.
The most important of these is simply changing the air filter. And trust us, it really is simple to do. Some homeowners love being involved in the upkeep of their homes and systems. Others are always fearful that they’re going to do more harm than good. Fortunately, changing your air filter, which you should be doing every 1-3 months, is so simple that literally anyone can do it. And if you think that this means it’s not that important, think again!

That is precisely why today’s post will focus on simpler, cheaper ways in which to boost cooling efficiency.
After all, we all want to live comfortably in our homes. Nothing pains us more than to imagine one of our valued customers living in discomfort just because he or she is worried about the cost of cooling the house effectively throughout.

Replacing an air conditioner may not be the most exciting way in which to spend your money. It is a necessary investment, however, because no air conditioning system is ever going to last forever. That being said, we completely understand that homeowners want to use their air conditioning systems for as long as possible. After all, you don’t want to waste your hard-earned cash by replacing your system prematurely, right?
Even so, we must remind you that waiting for your air conditioner to break down entirely really is not the way to go, either. Getting the most from your existing system is one thing; allowing it to completely die, on the other hand, is not going to do you any favors. So how do you know when it is time to replace your air conditioner in Columbia, MD? Well, read on for some helpful tips that will help you to determine if this is the year to do so.

When you need to use your air conditioner in order to cool down your home, you should not find yourself waiting with fingers crossed, hoping that the system springs right to life and is able to adjust temperatures successfully. That is the level of confidence, or lack thereof, that is appropriate to a poorly maintained air conditioning system, though. The fact of the matter is that you are only really going to be able to count on your AC when it is tuned up annually.
While you may be a very hands-on homeowner, the smartest homeowners are the ones that accept that some jobs are simply beyond their skillset. There is plenty that you can handle around your home, but routine air conditioning is always a job for trained professionals. That is why it is such a good idea to enroll in our maintenance program in Columbia, MD. Doing so not only ensures that you have access to the routine maintenance that your system needs, but it also entitles you to some added benefits.
