With temperatures finally starting to creep up in Hurricane, it’s normal to assume your air conditioner is working harder. The two go hand-in-hand, and all is dandy until the hottest day of summer shows up and you come home to the realization that your air conditioner stopped running. What now?
You have come to depend on your air conditioner when the temperatures reach their hottest, and we all know that summers in Hurricane can offer some unexpectedly hot weather, so why do we seem to always be shocked when they arrive? There’s no way around the higher temperatures through the summer, but there are a couple things you can do to be sure your air conditioner is ready to take care of them. It’s difficult to get a specific idea of the health of your air conditioner if you don’t have annual maintenance completed, and this is even more pertinent to systems that are over 10 years old.
Even if your system is five years old or newer, if you haven’t had service done, you can run the risk of having it go out at the worst possible time, which seems to happen about every time. It doesn’t matter if you’re heading out for a work trip or you’re planning on having company in the next few days, having your air conditioner quit working never happens at a convenient time. So when the inevitable happens, it’s important to know that you have a resource in the team at Teays Valley Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning that you can call on 24/7 in Hurricane. It doesn’t matter if you’ve just decided to arrange air conditioner service or you’re in need of emergency AC repair, our team is always around at 304-760-5088.
Having a non-working air conditioner isn’t fun even if it doesn’t occur during the warmer months.

While there are a seemingly endless number of problems that can arise with air conditioners, there are a few that come up more than others, like:
- Lapsed Maintenance – Think of routine air conditioner service like changing the oil in your car. Not only does it serve an essential purpose for performance, if you don’t do it you’ll start inviting other issues coming up as a result of it. Staying on top of routine AC system maintenance means that your system will get the attention it requires as well as helping uncover problems before they become larger issues. Plus, when you have service performed you stand a better chance of growing your system’s efficiency and maybe even decreasing your energy bills.
- Deteriorating Components – If your air conditioner isn’t being tuned-up regularly, there’s a chance that essential parts to your system’s functionality are slowly being negatively impacted. Ranging from the compressor and fan to a variety of other components, if your system isn’t operating at its finest, you run the risk of having the parts wear down. A possible sign of this is if your air conditioner cycles on and off regularly, placing an unnecessary amount of stress on the parts and possibly leading to system failure.
- Thermostat Problems – Thermostats play a bigger role in your comfort than they are given credit for, and while it’s easy to view them as the place to turn the temperature up and down, if they aren’t cared for, you could be feeling the effects. It can be something as easy as swapping out your battery or it could be something larger like an inappropriately calibrated thermostat sensor, but either way, it could impact the performance of your air conditioner.
