Question

My air conditioner isn’t working as well as it did at the beginning of the season. Do you have any idea what it might be? I don’t want to call in a repairman.

Answer

When temperatures soar, we find the air conditioner is no more. To beat the heat, check filters first. Clean or replace as needed; and check often. The hotter the weather and the more it runs, the faster filters clog up again. This makes units work harder and break down even faster. For both central air and window-mounted room units, check intake vents and condenser coils monthly. Remove leaves, hose out dirt and debris and clear condensation drain hoses. Why wait for problems? Check early and often.
