It’s 110 degrees outside. A few thunderstorms make it feel a few degrees cooler but also leave you with a sticky, humid environment. One that makes your clothes feel glued to your already sweaty body. Long days in Phoenix, AZ means over 14 hours of sunlight. Even at night, it’s hot, with the lows being in the mid-80s.
You try to spend less time outside and more time inside where you can enjoy the air conditioning, which is king in this climate.
Traveling to work means quickly moving from the air-conditioned home to the air-conditioned vehicle to the air-conditioned office.
The moments without air conditioning are extremely noticeable. It takes seconds to make you feel overheated. You look forward to any wind that comes your way.
This is July in Arizona!
The one saving grace is that it’s a dry heat, but that doesn’t mean you want to spend all day outside soaking up the sun.
The second saving grace is your air conditioner. When you walk into your home and feel the coolness touch your skin, you are relieved from the stress of hot temperatures. You smile and say to yourself, “Ah, yes, it’s cool”.
Think of this. Summer arrives early this year. You switch on your air conditioning unit, but nothing happens. You cringe as you think back to last year when you promised yourself you would get the unit serviced before now.
You urgently call for repair assistance, but the company is overwhelmed with orders. They put you on a waitlist. You start to panic because you realize it could be weeks before you feel the cool effects of your air conditioner.
If you are like us, going without air conditioning sounds painful during the Arizona summer.
It’s not all bad, though. There are things you can do right now to avoid this scenario and stay cool all summer.
Check Your System Today
Don’t wait to check your air conditioning system. Check it today and find out if it still works. Going months without use can sometimes make older systems malfunction. Just like everything else, their parts don’t work as well the older they get.
Turn your system on. Listen for abnormal sounds. Check the temperature gauges to see if it matches with what the unit is trying to put out. Is the air as cold as it should be?
If something feels off, anything, seek the help of a professional today.
Call the Pros
Calling the professionals in the Spring months means you won’t have trouble during the summer months when you need your air conditioner the most. Professionals are not as busy during March and April and will be able to quickly fix any problems with your unit. It may even be more cost-effective to have your unit serviced in the Spring.
This may also be the year to face the truth, your air conditioning unit cannot handle one more hot Arizona summer. If this will be the second or third year you have had to repair your unit and then cross your fingers it works all summer, it’s time.
Air conditioners can malfunction for many reasons. Not changing the filters enough can cause the coils to freeze often and eventually stop working. Air conditioners are like cars, when used they are going through a lot of wear and tear. Over time, after being pushed to its limits, a bigger problem will develop.
When this happens, repairing the unit may not be the best solution. Repairing could become more costly than buying a new one. It seems like once a product starts breaking down, it just gets worse.
The smartest way to ensure your home is cool throughout during the summer months is to install a new one now, in the Spring.
Main Reasons to Install Now
There are several reasons to install a new air conditioner now rather than waiting until it’s too late. One is that you will miss the mad rush of other homeowners who waited until it’s too late. During the summer, air conditioning units are running in just about every residential and commercial site in Arizona.
That means the number of air conditioning breakdowns will increase. That also means repair and installation companies will be busy, maybe too busy to help you for days or weeks.
Installing a new unit means you can save money in the Summer because today’s units are built to be more efficient, reducing the cost of your utilities.
Finally, reassurance. When July rolls around and your neighbors are worried about their air conditioner, you can feel confident that your unit will keep you cool for as long as you need it. It may even allow you to have some well-earned bragging rights
