How to Prevent Breakdowns from an Older Air Conditioner

Monday, October 3rd, 2016

Late summer is the period when older air conditioners tend to struggle more than they should, and here in Madisonville, LA, “late summer” translates into “any date before Thanksgiving” most years. The weather may be cooling, but that doesn’t mean you’re done with your air conditioner, and with months of daily use already under its belt (to say nothing of the devastating flooding our area suffer through earlier in the year), the chances of a breakdown climb much higher during this part of the year.

Common Signs of Air Conditioning Problems

Monday, July 11th, 2016

Air conditioning is as much a necessity as a luxury here in Madisonville, LA. Our summers are brutally hot and without a reliable AC system, your home is apt to become an oven very quickly.  The sooner you can spot an air conditioning problem, the more quickly you can summon a repair service and the less vulnerable your home will be to high temperatures and humidity. Only a trained technician can properly diagnose problems with your air conditioner, and you need proper licensing to conduct repairs (refrigerant and other materials in the system are actively dangerous without training). That said, most problems with your system evince one of just a  tiny handful of symptoms, and if you can spot them, you know enough to turn off your air conditioners and summon a repair service. We’ve listed the common signs of air conditioning problems below.

In point of fact, however, it’s a serious problem demanding immediate attention.
