Cool Comfort Tips for Sizzling Summers

Summer in the heart of Tennessee can be scorching, but with proper air conditioning maintenance and timely AC repairs, you can keep your home or business comfortable and energy-efficient throughout the hottest months. Here are some tips from the experts at Mayhem Mechanical:

Schedule Annual AC Tune-Ups

Just like your car needs regular oil changes, your air conditioner requires annual maintenance to ensure optimal performance. During a tune-up, our technicians will clean and inspect all components, check refrigerant levels, and make any necessary adjustments to improve efficiency and prevent breakdowns.

Change Your Air Filters Regularly

Clogged air filters make your AC work harder, leading to higher energy bills and potential system failure. Check and replace your filters every 1-3 months, depending on usage and household conditions.

Keep an Eye on Strange Noises or Smells

  • Grinding or squealing noises could indicate a failing motor or belt.
  • Musty odors may signal mold growth in the ductwork.
  • Don’t ignore these warning signs – call for professional AC repair right away.

Consider a Smart Thermostat

Upgrading to a programmable or smart thermostat can help you save energy and money by automatically adjusting temperatures when you’re away from home or asleep.

Plan for AC Replacement

Even with meticulous maintenance, air conditioners eventually reach the end of their lifespan. If your system is over 10 years old and requiring frequent repairs, it may be time to consider HVAC installation of a new, energy-efficient unit.
