Southern California just suffered the “biggest storm of winter” and it’s left many of our customers wondering about their air conditioning performance. Between big drought and floods of rain, the outdoor parts of a central air unit have been exposed to a lot of nasty weather.
Outdoors, you have two main components to your air conditioner. Both the compressor and condenser are the hottest parts of the unit, and they sit outdoors in a weather protected box. Though it’s not always the case, this kind of tumult can cause a minor issue to grow into a larger problem if left unnoticed.
Now is a good time to check for signs you need a repair, so that any malfunctions related to the storm can get addressed quickly.
A Little Note on Maintenance First
If you aren’t already, you should be doing two things to keep your AC running it’s best. First, as a homeowner, you should replace the air filter on your unit following the manufacturer’s recommendations. For most, that will be once every three months. Set a reminder on your calendar and check if it’s dirty. Keeping filter changes on a schedule will keep your home air quality high. It also will help avoid buildup of dirt and clogs that lead to problems.
Secondly, you should get an annual maintenance checkup on your unit. We offer senior and military discounts on all our services, including maintenance. This yearly appointment ensures your AC is running efficiently and helps you avoid costly repairs and higher utility bills.
