With temperatures finally starting to go up in Edmonton, it’s ordinary to assume your air conditioner is trying harder. The two go hand-in-hand, and all is dandy until the hottest day of summer happens and you come home to the realization that your air conditioner stopped operating. What now?
You have come to rely on your air conditioner when the temps reach their peak, and we all know that summers in Edmonton can offer some unexpectedly hot weather, so why do we seem to always be surprised when they arrive? There’s no way around the higher temperatures during the summer, but there are a few things you can do to ensure your air conditioner is ready to meet the challenge. It’s difficult to get an exact idea of the health of your air conditioner if you don’t have annual maintenance completed, and this is even more pertinent 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 done, you can run the risk of having it stop running at the worst possible time, which seems to happen almost every time. It doesn’t matter if you’re heading out for a work trip or you’re planning on having company tomorrow, having your air conditioner go out never happens at a convenient time. So when the inevitable happens, it’s important to know that you have a reliable company in the experts at Rob's Albertan Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning that you can call on 24/7 in Edmonton.

While there are a nearly endless number of issues that can come up with air conditioners, there are a couple that come up more than others, including:
- Lapsed Maintenance – Think of regular air conditioner service like it’s an oil change your car. Not only does it serve an essential purpose for performance, if you don’t do it you’ll start noticing other issues coming up as a result. Staying on top of annual AC system maintenance means that your system will get the attention it should have as well as helping uncover problems before they become larger issues. Plus, when you have maintenance completed you stand a better chance of boosting your system’s efficiency and maybe even decreasing your energy expenses.
- Deteriorating Components – If your air conditioner isn’t being maintained annually, there’s a chance that essential parts to your system’s function are slowly being negatively changed. Ranging from the compressor and fan to a host of other parts, if your system isn’t operating at its peak, you run the risk of having the parts go out. A possible sign of this is if your air conditioner cycles on and off a lot, placing an unnecessary amount of stress on the components and possibly 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 turn the temperature up and down, if they aren’t maintanted, you could be feeling the effects. It can be something as easy as switching out your battery or it could be something larger like an inappropriately calibrated thermostat sensor, but either way, it could impact the performance of your system.
