With temperatures finally starting to creep up in Dallas, it’s natural 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 notice that your air conditioner stopped operating. What now?
You have come to rely on your air conditioner when the temperatures reach their hottest, and we all know that summers in Dallas can provide some unexpectedly high temps, so why do we seem to always be caught off guard when they arrive? There’s no way around the increasing temperatures during the summer, but there are a couple things you can do to be sure your air conditioner is ready to meet the challenge. It’s hard to get a specific idea of the health of your air conditioner if you don’t have regular maintenance completed, and this is especially relevant to systems that are more than 10 years old.
Even if your system is five years old or newer, if you haven’t had service performed, you can run the risk of having it go out at the worst possible time, which seems to happen almost every time. It doesn’t matter if you’re heading out for a fun trip or you’re planning on having company in the next few days, having your air conditioner stop running 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 Levy & Son that you can count on 24/7 in Dallas. It doesn’t matter if you’ve just decided to set up air conditioner service or you’re in need of emergency AC repair, our team is only a call away at 469-250-0932.
Having a broken down air conditioner isn’t fun even if it doesn’t happen during the hotter months. That’s why every time we speak with people in the Dallas area we tell them to give us a call and get their regular AC service appointments scheduled so they don’t have to worry about dealing with inconvenient AC repairs.

While there are a seemingly endless number of issues that can come up with air conditioners, there are a handful that come up more than others, like:
- Lapsed Maintenance – Think of routine air conditioner service like getting an oil change for your car. Not only does it serve a critical purpose for performance, if you don’t do it you’ll start seeing other issues coming up because of it. Staying on top of regular AC system maintenance means that your system will get the attention it should have as well as helping stop problems before they become more of an issue. Plus, when you have maintenance done you stand a better chance of boosting your system’s efficiency and maybe even lowering your energy costs.
- Deteriorating Components – If your air conditioner isn’t being serviced annually, 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 number of other components, if your system isn’t running at its best, you run the risk of having the parts go out. A possible sign of this is if your air conditioner cycles on and off regularly, placing an unnecessary amount of pressure on the components and potentially leading to system failure.
- Thermostat Problems – Thermostats play a larger role in your comfort than they are given credit for, and while it’s easy to view them as the place to adjust the temperature up and down, if they aren’t cared for, you could be feeling the effects. It can be something as easy as switching out your battery or it could be something more like an improperly calibrated thermostat sensor, but either way, it could impact the performance of your air conditioner.
Facing an AC repair doesn’t have to feel hard or like it’s the end of the world.
