If you’re a resident of Arizona, get ready for the heat wave. Sure, it’s a dry heat, but when the temperature gets to 115 or higher, you know from experience a fully functioning air conditioner can, literally, be a matter of life or death.
Just look at these terrible headlines:
· CNN, June 20, 2016, Wildfires and deadly heat wave hit Southwest U.S.
Just last year a record-breaking spring heat wave spurred raging wildfires and 120-degree temperatures in Arizona killed four people.
· The Weather Channel, April 21, 2016, 330 million impacted by India heat wave that has killed at least 160, officials say.
· El Paso Times, July 19, 2016, Health officials: Heat wave kills 4 in El Paso
Last year El Paso experienced 16 consecutive days of temperatures higher than 100 degrees.
These headlines illustrate the importance of making absolutely certain your air conditioner is ready for the Arizona temperatures. The time to check your unit is now – before the temperatures start to really climb.
Spring in Arizona Means It’s Time for an Air Conditioner Tune Up
After an entire winter season of sitting idle, your air conditioner is likely in desperate need of a check up. This will help ensure that when you flip the switch to COOL that’s exactly what will happen. Over the winter hoses can crack, parts can seize up, and wires can break, which could spell disaster during the summer.
The professionals at Ambient Edge have a spring tune-up that can help you keep your air conditioner in tip-top shape throughout the year. Repairs can be expensive, so we recommend a little preventative maintenance in the spring as insurance during the summer months. Our trained, licensed technicians can spot the kinds of fraying and wear and tear on your unit that can cause problems. From air conditioning repair to new installations, Ambient Edge has been servicing Arizona residents in Kingman, Bullhead City, Lake Havasu, and the surrounding area for more than a decade. We’ve serviced hundreds of makes and models of air conditioners – which is why our customers trust us in their home.
Our spring Arizona air conditioning tune up service helps prevent future problems. The appointment takes about 45 minutes and includes a comprehensive series of checks designed to gauge the health of your air conditioning unit:
· We inspect and lubricate all moving parts.
· We monitor the refrigerant and recharge the unit if needed.
· We check and carefully calibrate the indoor thermostat.
· We inspect the assembly on the blower unit.
· We check all wires for rust, corrosion, and tighten anything that’s loose.
· We clean and change the air filter.
Our goal is to thoroughly inspect your air conditioner and take care of any issues that we believe could cause a problem during the intense summer heat wave that we’re sure to experience this year. At the end of our visit, your air conditioner will be calibrated to maximize its efficiency and functioning no matter how hot the Arizona dry heat will rise this summer.
