With temperatures finally starting to creep up in Roanoke, it’s natural to assume your air conditioner is trying harder. The two go hand-in-hand, and all is great until the hottest day of summer arrives and you come home to the realization that your air conditioner stopped running. What now?
You have come to depend on your air conditioner when the temps reach their hottest, and we all know that summers in Roanoke can bring some unexpectedly high temperatures, so why do we seem to always be surprised when they arrive? There’s no way around the rising temperatures through the summer, but there are a couple things you can do to be sure your air conditioner is ready to handle them. It’s tough to get an accurate idea of the health of your air conditioner if you don’t have routine maintenance done, 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 completed, you could run the risk of having it go out at the worst possible time, which seems to happen nearly every time. It doesn’t matter if you’re heading out for a business trip or you’re planning on having company this weekend, 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 someone to turn to in the pros at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning that you can count on 24/7 in Roanoke. It doesn’t matter if you’ve just decided to arrange air conditioner service or you’re in need of emergency AC repair, our team is only a call away at 540-302-8645.
Having a broken down air conditioner isn’t fun even if it doesn’t take place during the warmer months. That’s why every time we chat with homeowners in the Roanoke area we tell them to give us a call and get their annual AC service appointments set up so they don’t have to worry about dealing with inconvenient AC repairs.

While there are a nearly endless number of issues that can come up with air conditioners, there are a handful that come up more than others, including:
- Lapsed Maintenance – Think of annual air conditioner service like getting an oil change for your car. Not only does it serve a crucial purpose for performance, if you don’t do it you’ll start inviting other issues coming up because of it. Staying on top of annual AC system maintenance means that your system will get the attention it requires as well as helping uncover problems before they become larger issues. Plus, when you have maintenance completed you stand a better chance of growing your system’s efficiency and maybe even lowering your energy costs.
- Deteriorating Components – If your air conditioner isn’t being maintained annually, there’s a chance that essential parts to your system’s functionality are slowly being negatively impacted. Ranging from the compressor and fan to a variety of other components, if your system isn’t working at its best, you run the risk of having the parts go out. A possible sign of this is if your air conditioner cycles on and off frequently, placing an unnecessary amount of strain on the parts and potentially leading to system failure.
- Thermostat Problems – Thermostats play a greater role in your comfort than they are given credit for, and while it’s easy to view them as the place to adjust the temperature up and down, if they aren’t cared for, you might be feeling the effects. It can be something as easy as changing out your battery or it could be something more like an incorrectly calibrated thermostat sensor, but either way, it could alter the performance of your AC.
Facing an AC repair doesn’t have to feel intimidating or like it’s the end of the world.
