Home Feels Unbearably Warm? Clean The Fins On Your Outdoor AC Unit

If your home feels hot and uncomfortable, clean the fins on your cooling system's outdoor condenser coil.

If the compressor does overheat, it can affect the entire cooling system. Here's why and how you should clean the condenser coil's fins. Read More

About Me

Why You Shouldn't Put off Your Annual AC Inspection

I almost always have my air conditioner inspected every spring before I start using it in the summer. However, last year I decided to skip the inspection. Everything had been OK for the last couple of years, so I assumed that it would be fine this year as well. Why not save a few dollars and skip the annual check up, just this once? Of course, this was the year that my air conditioner decided to break down. It ran for a few days, but it never really seemed to get cool enough to bring the indoor temperature down. Then it started making a loud noise, right before shutting off completely. By that time, the AC repair company was swamped like it always is when the weather is warm, and I had to wait days for an appointment. Next year, I will definitely be getting that yearly inspection first.
