It’s been 90 degrees or hotter for three days in a row now, and some of us are finally coming to the realization that we have been putting up with an old inefficient air conditioner for far to long. My wake up call was when my family’s old air conditioner quit working half way through the 3rd day of this unbearable heat wave.
The A/C Won’t Fix Itself
Too many of us assume that it is better to leave the air conditioner alone than to have it serviced. Maybe it is that old saying, “if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it,” but that’s just not the case when it comes to your air conditioner. Ignoring the need for maintenance or replacement has left us on the 3rd or 4th day of a 10 day heat wave without any cooling. Within an hour or so our home was unbearably warm and we were searching for somewhere to seek refuge from the heat. Sure, we could go to the movies or walk around the mall for a few hours, but even though these places are air conditioned, they won’t let us stay all day long. We are going to have to go home to that hot sticky house sooner or later.
Better Call Sooner Rather Than Later
What did we do? We had to bite the bullet and make the phone call to Four Seasons Heating and Air Conditioning. If you have found yourself in this same situation, you should do the same. Your old unit may be fixable, if not Four Seasons can usually have a new unit installed and working the same day you call, but you’ve got to call to find out how fast they can help you. I have to add this disclaimer: four or five days into a major heat wave you might have to wait until tomorrow to get that new air conditioning system installed, but Four Seasons always offers same day emergency service. So, the longer you wait to call, the longer you and your family will have to suffer in this heat! Drop your mouse and pick up the phone!
