A Few Reasons Why Your House Is Not Cooling Down

It’s been a hot July and last week was a real scorcher...99-100 on the beach! If you’re reading this, you survived our recent heat waves. As for us...we just barely survived!

The Comfort Now Team put out a Herculean effort to respond to so many calls for help with broken or improperly functioning air conditioning systems, that we had a share a few of our favorites. As a team, we got a lot of air conditioners running again for local homeowners in a very short amount of time, but the issues probably could have been avoided in the first place...let me explain! As a homeowner, if you were to consider the enclosed tips to better prepare your home, you may keep from making similar calls to your local HVAC contractor during the next heat wave! As we mentioned, during the extreme weather, we fielded A LOT of calls with similar issues. Here are just a few examples of the calls we received:

The Basic Call for Service

“My AC hasn’t shut off for 2 days...it must be broken”

“It’s 75 (76,78,79,80) in my house...my AC is not working”

“The air coming out doesn’t feel cold...my air conditioner stopped working”

“I have a child, elderly person or pet at home and 78 degrees in my house is too hot for them...please help asap!“

Questions That Were Even Worse

“I have the thermostat set at 66 (65,64….62) and it’s only 69 (70….73)...why is my AC not working?”

“We got to the house at 3:00pm and it was 87 degrees in the house. We turned on the AC, it’s now 9:00pm and my house only cooled to 84 degrees...why is the AC not working?”
