It’s springtime in Maryland again and for a few short weeks in between the cold, windy March days and the hot, humid days of May and June, there are some perfect sunny, days where you can open up your windows and be comfortable without having to run the heat or AC in your house or car. Although it’s nice to breathe the fresh air and be able to save on your energy bill, the reality is the summer is not far away and with it, the sweltering, humid weather that comes with it. Many homeowners with aging HVAC systems forget that the first time the weather gets too warm, there is no guarantee that when they turn on that system for the first time, that it’s actually going to work. As HVAC professionals, we strongly recommend testing out the air conditioning system the first day it gets relatively warm just to confirm it will work when you need it to give you the piece of mind that you have nothing to worry about, and if it doesn’t, it will give you an opportunity to schedule a service call or if non-repairable, the opportunity to have an estimate to replace the system and make a good, no pressure decision on a good contractor with a fair price. As always, we’re here at SM Mechanical to give you any help you need when it comes to HVAC, Plumbing, and Electrical repairs or projects for your home.
