When your air conditioning isn’t working, it can seem like the end of the world.

AC Repair Services in Leon Valley
When we come out to your home in Leon Valley, TX, we’ll evaluate the air conditioning system in your home thoroughly to make sure that we identify the problem correctly so that we can repair it correctly! You’ll get the very best of our expertise while we’re there, but in the meantime, there are a few things you can do if your AC isn’t doing its job.
If you don’t think your air conditioner is cooling the way it should, try these things:
- Make sure the doors and windows are closed and sealed.
It’s an easy fix to simply shut an upstairs window or add weather stripping under a door, although it may take your system a day or two to catch back up if it’s really hot.
- Lower the thermostat.
Dropping the thermostat by several degrees – at least 5 – will allow you to see if that makes a difference. Do this before you try anything else.
- Check the filters.
Dirty filters will not allow air to flow freely in and out of your house. That means that the cool air never has a chance to get inside.
- Clean the evaporator.
This is a step that many homeowners stop just short of. If you don’t feel comfortable cleaning your system’s evaporator because of potential contact with refrigerant, call an expert.
If nothing seems to be wrong with your air conditioner when you’ve checked these things, consider the temperature outside. Your air conditioner may be working fine, but the temperature outside may just be too hot for your AC to keep up. If it’s 100 degrees or hotter outside, the best you may be able to get out of your system is 77 or 78 degrees.
