Monday, July 30th, 2018

blown-awayWe do not expect homeowners to be air conditioning experts. If you all were, after all, our business would be in serious trouble! That being said, we do think that it is in your best interest to have some idea of how your air conditioning system works.

Don’t Let Your System Short Cycle

Monday, June 4th, 2018

relaxing-on-couchConsidering just how hot it can get around here during the summer season, we probably don’t need to tell you that you are going to want to have any problems with your air conditioning resolved in a prompt manner when they arise. What you may need reminding of, however, is that not all problems are going to result in an immediate breakdown. The fact that your air conditioner is starting up, and even the fact that it is pumping out some cooled air, does not mean that the system is functioning properly.

Short cycling is a common air conditioning problem that many homeowners encounter. Because the system is technically functional, even if it is running erratically, many homeowners fail to address the issue in a prompt manner. This is a huge disservice to the system, as well as to those homeowners’ comfort. Today, we’re going to discuss why you’ll want to get in touch with our Kennesaw AC repair pros as soon as you notice that your system is short cycling.
