Summer is progressing right along, and we’re all using our
air conditioners on a regular basis. That said, your air conditioning system
goes through a lot this season and
beyond, accumulating wear and tear faster than air conditioners in other parts
of the country. This means it could potentially require more repairs.
To avoid the biggest, most sudden, and costliest of these AC
repair needs, we implore you to schedule maintenance at least once a year for
your air conditioner. During this service, our professionals will fully
inspect, clean, and adjust your system to ensure its efficient performance.
With or without maintenance, however, if your cooling system is making noises
you don’t recognize, it’s time to call in a pro. What noises, in particular,
should you pay attention to?

At DC Cheek, we value honesty—even when it’s not popular for
other HVAC companies to give customers the power over their decisions. We
believe in doing the right thing.
So, when we say you shouldn’t rush into an air conditioning
purchase, we really mean it. We understand, it’s nearly the middle of summer
and it is hot. If your air
conditioner has broken down or stopped cooling your home as effectively as it
once did, there is absolutely a sense of urgency.
But rushing into an air conditioning purchase can leave you
with an improperly installed system, or one that is not sized correctly or
matched to your home.

If there’s anything we dislike as homeowners, it’s the
prospect of air conditioning repairs. However, they’re a fact of life!
Considering how much we use our cooling systems on a daily basis during the
summer, it’s only inevitable that at some point, you’ll need repairs.
Now, we can definitely help you fend off the worst of these repairs, with
professional maintenance once a year (or twice a year, if you have a heat
pump). The last thing you need, after all, is a sudden breakdown and repair
call when temperatures heat their peak.

When you think of home performance, you likely think of how efficient your home comfort systems are—things like your air conditioner, water heater, and even your lighting. These are all, of course, important components to home performance, but what about your indoor air quality?
After all, the air quality in your home is about much more
than simply the temperature—it’s about whether your air is actually healthy or not.
One method to ensure good indoor air quality is with the installation of a UV (ultraviolet) air purifier installation.

There aren’t a lot of things HVAC pros will tell you that
you can do yourself when it comes to servicing your comfort control system. And
the fact of the matter is that for big repairs, this is mostly true—particularly
since there are some components of HVAC systems that professionals need special
training and licensing for. This includes substances like refrigerant and
natural gas, in the case of a furnace.
That said, professional maintenance is important. In fact, it is vital to the overall performance and
efficiency of your air conditioner. It allows our technicians to thoroughly
inspect your air conditioner for problems, anything that needs adjusting, and
anything that needs to be cleaned. It also allows you to get repairs on your
schedule right away so they don’t turn into bigger emergencies later on down
the line. But, back to how you can boost efficiency by yourself…

Temperatures are already soaring, and you just noticed that
you forgot to arrange for your next air conditioning maintenance appointment.
But maybe you can skip it, just this one year? It’s probably too late to have it
done now anyway, right?
Not quite! In the absence of a total system breakdown, it’s
never actually too late to get your air conditioner tuned-up. This is truly a
case of “it’s better late than never.” Plus, there are benefits to joining our
maintenance plan, which we’ll elaborate on below.
