4 Common Rockford AC Tips

To say that our air conditioners don’t have their fair share of work during the summer here in Rockford would be a lie. It gets hot and humid here, and our air conditioners must deal with all of it in order to keep us comfortable. While summers might not be as consistently hot as they are in some other areas of the country, like Florida or Texas, the weather gets rainy, muggy, and hot here nonetheless.

Let’s talk about some problems that might be unique here in Michigan. What kinds of air conditioner troubles do Michiganders have to deal with that other areas of the country might be free from? You can bet your bottom that air conditioner repair in Rockford, MI becomes important due to our climate. Let’s talk about why AC repair is important for our climate and what you can do to help!

Invest in a Dehumidifier

Other areas of the country, like New Mexico and Arizona, deal with a dryer heat than us. This means they’ve got access to different tools and equipment to deal with it. For us here in Rockford, MI, we deal with humid summer days that feel much hotter than they actually are.

That’s because humidity messes with our ability as humans to sweat. When sweat evaporates off of our bodies, the evaporation process cools us down and makes us feel better. However, when there’s more moisture in the air, that evaporation process slows to a halt, so we feel sticky and hot. The moisture in the air also holds heat better than dry air, which means things feel much hotter than the thermometer might read.

Investing in a dehumidifier could be a great way to combat the problems of humidity and make it easier on your air conditioner during the summer months.

Schedule AC Maintenance

Our air conditioners work for shorter spurts of the year than they might in other parts of the country. Down in Florida, homeowners run their air conditioners practically all year round, while we just need them mainly in the summertime. Maintenance can help our air conditioners last longer by making sure they’re fine-tuned for the short bursts they’re needed for every summer. This is why maintenance appointments are so important.

Schedule Quick AC Repair

The faster you call our technicians for AC repair here in Rockford, the better. If you wait, summer might already be over and you’ll have forgotten about how much help your AC needed. By the time spring and summer roll around next year, you’ll be in heaps of trouble. Don’t regret not calling us for fast repair, give us a call now!

Clean Around Your Outdoor AC

If there’s one thing for certain here in Michigan, it’s that we see all 4 seasons. That means we get rain, fallen leaves, snow, storms, everything the weather has to offer. So, make it easier on your air conditioner and technicians who provide service by keeping your air conditioner’s outdoor cabinet clear. Sweep away leaves, dirt, sticks, or anything else that might be blocking airflow.
