Summertime heat is reaching its peak. Is your air conditioning unit in good shape? If it doesn’t seem to be cooling as well as it should, you’ve likely got a problem that will only get worse as the summer progresses. Below are some tips for those who enjoy do-it-yourself home repairs. However, should you find that your air conditioner still isn’t working properly, Appalachian Refrigeration and Heating, located in Marion, NC, in McDowell County, is here to serve you. We’re the best choice for your air conditioning service needs.

Here are a couple of easy tips to help your air conditioner is running at its best:

Close all the outside doors and windows. This may seem obvious, but you’d be surprised how many people leave the bathroom window open for fresh air. Other rooms that are often overlooked are in the garage, laundry room, and the children’s bedrooms. Your air conditioner can’t get your home as cool as it should be when the outside heat is sneaking into your house, so go through it to make sure all the outside doors and windows are closed.

Check out the filters on your air conditioner. Chances are they have an accumulation of dust and lint. Time to change them, and fortunately, it’s very easy. Just slide the new ones right back into the slots where the old ones were.

Most filters need to be replaced every few weeks in order for the unit to more efficiently pull the air through. The frequency of replacement depends on the filter style and common sense. If it’s dirty before the recommended time is up, go ahead and replace it. Why? Because if the filters are dirty, the compressor will have to work much harder, and will be more likely to fail. Some filters only need to be cleaned by rinsing them with water, depending on what kind you have. If the aisle with all the filters seems intimidating, just take the old filters with you and buy exactly the same kind and size.

If these simple checks don’t seem to help, it’s time to call Appalachian Refrigeration and Heating. Our technicians have the experience and education you need to get your air conditioning back up to its best working capacity.
