Spring has sprung in the Atlanta area and while everyone is enjoying shaking off the dreary days of winter, it’s important to be looking ahead to the summer months. Especially when it comes to servicing your HVAC system. You’ll want your home to be a cool, comfortable oasis from the heat, not an airless sauna. Take some time now to avoid any surprises when the mercury hits those high numbers.

April brings pleasant temperatures to Atlanta with highs in the 70s and 80s, but May temperatures start creeping higher and higher. The upper 80s and 90s are normal for the hottest months of the year, July and August, and the overnight lows don’t dip much below 70 degrees. The long, hot steamy days of summer are just on the horizon and if last year is any indication of what to expect, it’s going to be a hot one! According to National Weather Service, summer 2016 in Atlanta was the second-hottest on record, just behind the summer of 1980. Temps hit 90 degrees or higher at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and DeKalb-Peachtree Airport 75 times last year!

As the temps rise, your air conditioner is going to be working harder and harder. Without a proper servicing before the heat hits, your system might become overwhelmed and call it quits. Just like a car breakdown is never convenient, you know that with proper care and maintenance you can reduce them. The same goes for your HVAC unit. Just because it’s out of sight, doesn’t mean that it doesn’t need regular maintenance as well.
