Three Commonly Overlooked Air Conditioning Issues
Thursday, July 21, 2016

It’s the hot and sultry season in North Carolina. That means that you want your cooling system to be working as smoothly and as efficiently as possible. While there are a wide range of things that can go wrong with your cooling system, there are a few commonly overlooked issues that can be easily prevented or corrected if you keep an eye out for them.

Commonly-overlooked cooling system issues:

1. Dirty filters/ dirty system. We all know to change the air filter in our cooling system around once a month during the height of the hot weather season. However, it’s easy to forget amidst other summer commitments. However, a dirt-clogged system is the number one reason that cooling systems fail. It’s wise to make time to change that filter.

2. Dense foliage around the condenser. Another issue that can cause your cooling system to fail is dense foliage around the condenser. Like a dirty filter, this restricts the air flow in your system and forces the motor to work harder to push air around.

3. Blocked air vents. While it may seem like a good idea to close off the vents to rooms you’re not using, this practice actually compromises the efficiency of your cooling system. Not only does the air not flow as intended, but the blower works harder to try to push air through those closed vents.

All City Heat and Air came out and installed a new system for me 2 years ago. We have had maintenance contracts on the system since then. Their professionalism is what stands out to me about them. It's under a service contract so it's covered by the contract. They come out every 6 months and the price covers the life of the contract.


I would recommend family and friends to very definitely consider them, and I will use them again. They are certainly very responsive, and they have been very willing to work with me. I live in Florida, but the house is in Charlotte so they have worked through some scheduling issues and some other issues with me that have been mutually satisfactory.
