Try it out now!

It really is important to give your system a practice run sooner rather than later. You don’t want your air conditioner to shutdown on the most blistering day of the year and make your home uncomfortable. Rather, setting your thermostat to its cooling mode and allowing it to run, even for a few minutes, will be a perfect trial run that can save you a lot of future issues. Ensure that cool air is blowing into your home, and if it’s not, here are a few things to examine before calling the professionals at E B Air Conditioning & Heating Service:

  • Make sure your system was set to cool. It’s a common mistake and one that is made frequently, but if you haven’t flipped your thermostat from the heat setting, cool air won’t be blowing. Simple problem, simple solution!
  • Check the unit outside. Reassess to see if there are any blockages around your system, such as items or dirt, that can clog your air flow and cool air production.
  • Change your filters. As always, this step is vital to refining the performance of your air conditioning system. With fresh and new filters, your cool air will be cleaner and it will establish an easier environment for air to flow through.

Once you’ve tried things out – your system is programmed to cool, and the unit and filters are clean – and you still aren’t getting any cool air, it’s time to call in the specialists if there are complications. Regular air conditioner service should be on your radar this time of the year anyway, so now is the ideal time to look at every aspect of your system before the heat hits. The experts at E B Air Conditioning & Heating Service will not only repair the current difficulty at hand, but they will also deal with any small possible future issues that could turn into bigger concerns later.

Everyone trusts their air conditioner to get them through the summer and it can be easy to ignore how vital your system is to your summer ease.
