With temperatures finally starting to creep up in Louisville, it’s ordinary to assume your air conditioner is going to work harder. The two go hand-in-hand, and all is good until the hottest day of summer arrives and you come home to the realization that your air conditioner stopped working. What now?
You have come to count on your air conditioner when the temps reach their highest, and we all know that summers in Louisville can offer some unexpectedly high temps, so why do we seem to always be shocked when they arrive? There’s no way around the increasing temperatures through the summer, but there are a couple things you can do to ensure your air conditioner is ready to take care of them. It’s difficult to get an accurate idea of the health of your air conditioner if you don’t have regular maintenance done, and this is particularly relevant to systems that are over 10 years old.
Even if your system is five years old or newer, if you haven’t had service performed, you could run the risk of having it go out at the worst possible time, which seems to happen almost every time. It doesn’t matter if you’re heading out for a business 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 resource in the team at Becht / Givens Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning that you can call on 24/7 in Louisville. It doesn’t matter if you’ve just decided to set up air conditioner service or you’re in need of emergency AC repair, our team is always around at 502-785-8230.
Having a non-running air conditioner isn’t fun even if it doesn’t take place during the hotter months. That’s why every time we talk with folks in the Louisville area we tell them to give us a call and get their regular AC service appointments scheduled so they don’t have to worry about putting up with inconvenient AC repairs.

While there are a nearly endless number of concerns that can arise with air conditioners, there are a few 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 an essential purpose for performance, if you don’t do it you’ll start seeing 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 catch problems before they become more of an issue. Plus, when you have tune-ups completed you stand a better chance of boosting your system’s efficiency and maybe even decreasing your energy bills.
- Deteriorating Components – If your air conditioner isn’t being serviced annually, there’s a chance that essential parts to your system’s operation are slowly being negatively affected. Ranging from the compressor and fan to a host of other parts, if your system isn’t running at its best, you run the risk of having the parts wear down. A possible sign of this is if your air conditioner cycles on and off regularly, placing an unnecessary amount of stress on the pieces and possibly 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 set the temperature up and down, if they aren’t maintanted, you might be feeling the effects. It can be something as easy as switching out your battery or it could be something more like an improperly calibrated thermostat sensor, but either way, it could change the performance of your air conditioner.
