How Is Your Air Conditioner Doing This Summer?

We want you to take a moment to check in with your air conditioner at this point in the summer. It’s easy to get swept up in your daily life and start to deprioritize your comfort. You should always make sure that your comfort is one of your top priorities. It’s going to affect you every single day. We’ll make sure that your air conditioning services are top-notch and affordable.

If you want great air conditioning in Colorado Springs, CO, then you should schedule an appointment with our team members. Today, we’re going to take some time to help you determine if you need more from your AC.

Checking In With Your AC: The Breakdown

Here are some factors to consider when assessing how your air conditioner is performing:

Your Comfort

The first thing that you should consider when it comes to your air conditioning is your comfort. How comfortable are you at home?

Comfort comes down to more than just staying cool. It’s also about what it takes to get that comfort. Do you have to hover over your thermostat and change it all the time? Do you have to spend a ridiculous amount of money just to get cool? Do you struggle to keep your home cool? These are all signs that your comfort isn’t really accessible and you’re struggling to get it. You should take some time to reassess your home’s need.

The Price

Now, let’s talk about the price of your home’s air conditioning. We’re going to approach this from two different perspectives: the price of your repair and the price of your monthly energy bills.

Repair Services

When it comes to your repair services, you should factor in something called the rule of 5,000. All you need to do is multiply the cost of your repair job by the age of your air conditioner. If the final sum is above 5,000, then you need to consider something other than repair. It might be time for replacement. Let’s run through an example:

12 (the age of your AC) x $525 (the cost of your air conditioning repair job) = 6,300

This outcome is much more than 5,000. This is a clear sign that you need to take a different approach. We can help you do this.

Your Monthly Energy Bills

What are your monthly energy bills like? Are they steadily increasing? Do they seem unreasonable when compared to how you run your air conditioner? These are signs that your air conditioner isn’t fairing too well. We’ll help you figure out the source of your air conditioning efficiency and work to solve it.

Any New Issues

Has your air conditioner seemed to pick up some new habits? Maybe it’s started to run in a different way, it’s making odd noises, or it’s emitting weird scents. These are all issues that you should address as soon as possible. We’re prepared to pinpoint any issue you’re having and help you solve it.
