Will Your Air Conditioner Make It All Summer?
Summer is in Full Swing – Schedule an HVAC tune-up Today
Summertime allows you to relax and enjoy the sun, holidays and family get-togethers. Unfortunately, summer also brings intense heat waves and high humidity levels. Many homeowners seek shelter indoors when the heat is unbearable, but what happens when your air conditioner unexpectedly goes kaput? No one can predict exactly when an air conditioner will fail, but here are a few tell-tale signs.
- Blowing Warm Air. This is a big tell that something isn’t quite right.
- Making Loud Noises. Banging and clanging is a sure sign of repair.
- Foul Smells. Could be mold, mildew, or even a burned wire.
- High Humidity Levels. High humidity is not only uncomfortable, it leads to mold and mildew problems.
- Frequent Cycling. Does your unit constantly start and stop?
- Slow to Turn On. Your thermostat should kick on your unit right away.
- Insufficient Air Flow. The unit is blowing cold, but the airflow is weak.
- Water Leak. Small amounts could just be condensation, a large pool or discoloration could be a more serious issue.
- Energy Bill is on the Rise. Your energy bill shouldn’t increase dramatically with the rising temps.
- Outside Unit is Freezing Up. Airflow problems can put ice on the outside of the unit.
- Age of Unit. Your air conditioner should last 10-15 years depending on model/brand and proper maintenance.

"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."

"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
