The Importance of Staying on Top of Your Air ConditionerApril 25th, 2014
With the warm weather coming, and allergy season in full effect, you are beginning to utilize the air conditioner that has been inactive for almost seven months. It is important to test the system a few times throughout the winter to ensure it is working efficiently when the time comes to flick the on switch for the grueling five months ahead. When there are problems, you won’t be faced with serious health hazards as with boilers or oil tanks, but you are facing serious hazards to your bank account.
It can take some time before you realize that the system isn’t operating up to standards, and every day that you ignore the circumstances, your electrical bills are increasing as the system works overtime to keep you comfortable. And the problem is, you won’t be comfortable when the first 95 degree day hits. You have to stay on top of any underlying problems with your air conditioner so as to avoid the need for a professional to come in and provide AC repair in Philadelphia.
Before the blistering heat arrives, be sure the air conditioning unit is fully operational, making the home comfortable and cool. There are many instances where your unit can malfunction, leaving you to call the experts. Check the performance of your system regularly and when you sense any irregularities, examine the unit yourself or call your repair specialist. Common problems involve the outside fan, various coils, a faulty thermostat, clogged drainpipe, as well as a blown fuse. Some can easily be detected, others not so much.
If you wait too long to confront the problem, you can see a complete breakdown of the entire unit. When this happens, not only will your bills be through the roof, but the repairs will leave you with hindsight that the problem should have been taken care of long ago. Don’t suffer from hindsight bias.
