Air conditioners generate cold air. They make a bit of moisture, due to the condensation developing on their cold refrigerant coils.

If your AC has a smell, you need to schedule AC repair. Here’s what might be going on…

AC Neglect: A Tricky Situation

Monday, August 16th, 2021

Neglecting your air conditioner is never a good option. We know that nobody neglects their AC system on purpose, but it’s one of the most damaging things that can be done to an AC. We’d much rather be confronted with a malfunctioning air conditioner by a homeowner that’s confounded, than stumble upon a forgotten AC that’s really veering towards replacement much earlier than it should be.

Neglected systems, or systems that are ignored or forgotten about, tend to break down only in a few years. Well-maintained systems and units that are paid close attention can last upwards of 10-15 years in age because problems are promptly addressed.

This blog post is part PSA and part advice about how you can avoid neglecting your air conditioner, and what could happen if you do forget about your precious system. Don’t forget to schedule AC repair in Fair Oaks Ranch, TX if you encounter a problem!
