Summer is the season of relaxation and rest, but the scorching summer sun can mean working overtime for your air conditioning unit. In extreme heat, your unit has to work that much harder to keep your home comfortable. It’s important to take care of your AC unit so you can avoid breakdowns in the hottest months of the year. Luckily, there are some smart steps to avoid breakdowns and ensure that your home stays cool all summer long, even in the Phoenix heat.
Fall is upon us, and that means a welcomed break from our Arizona heat. As with any change of seasons, it is good practice to edit your home from what it needs to operate in the summer time months to what the fall weather dictates.
A good place to start is to walk the exterior of your home and look to clear away any rocks or debris that may have blown against the house. Check also to make sure that tree limbs are far enough away from your home, and look into removing those that are either too close or do not appear healthy.
This is also a perfect time to check on your heating and A/C unit. With the weather cooling off, many homes will be switching their thermostat to heat for the first time in months. Be sure that when you make the switch your heating and air conditioning unit is in peak condition.
Arizona Dust Storms cause major air conditioning problems!
Arizona is known for its’ two seasons; the beautiful season and the dust storms season. At Cooper Climate Control, we see the damage Arizona dust storms cause on air conditioning units on a daily basis. Dust very easily gets into electrical components and will rob your home of energy and electricity flow. It is very important to call us to service and repair air conditioners after the dust storms blow through.
Cooper Climate Control will clean and make certain your air conditioning unit is free of all dust and debris on all contact points; disconnect boxes, low voltage connections and outdoor coils. Dust acts an abrasive and can eventually cause leakage, which no one wants during the Arizona dust storms season.
Along with having the AC unit serviced, it is very important to have your heating and air conditioning systems reviewed on twice a year and Cooper Climate Control AC maintenance plans are made as a friendly reminder. Please see a complete description of the services we perform during our spring maintenance check-ups and fall maintenance check-ups.
After Arizona dust storms season, make sure to
schedule your air conditioner repair with Cooper Climate Control.
