It’s not even August yet and we’ve already seen triple digit temperatures all across the country. While the latest heat wave may be breaking, summer is just getting started. Thankfully, air conditioning exists and people are able to cool off inside their homes, schools, and offices. When air conditioning units break, however, which can happen to anyone at any time, some serious problems can occur.
No matter the time of year, when your HVAC unit is in need of repairs, it’s recommended to get that on your to-do list ASAP and make sure it’s ready for peak performance. Since it’s already the middle of summer, though, any break in your AC unit needs to go right to the top of your priority list and get taken care of immediately.
Imagine coming home after working outside in 90-degree temperatures. If your home hasn’t been cooling down all day with a quality AC unit running, it’s going to feel like a hot box in there. After a few summer days and nights of no AC in your home, you and your family won’t just be uncomfortable, but your entire quality of life will suffer as a result. Extremely hot homes are nearly impossible to fall asleep in, subsequently leading to all kinds of stressful and unhealthy issues. In fact, lack of air conditioning can actually be quite dangerous during heat waves, especially for pets, children, and the elderly. You’ll also be at risk of heat stroke if your body temperature rises anywhere near 104 degrees Fahrenheit.
Still not convinced that you need to take care of your home’s AC units? Even if you and your family are lucky enough to avoid heat-related health issues and can still sleep soundly, a busted air conditioner can cause financial problems as well. If your AC unit isn’t functioning properly, you’ll end up spending a fortune on your energy bills.
As long as you’re staying on top of your maintenance and repair needs, air conditioning units should last around 10 to 15 years. As soon as you notice any issues, you need to contact a professional so you can get your AC unit functioning properly again and keep you, your family, and your home cool.
