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.


Apollo Home wants Cincinnati residents to be ready when the heat starts rising, and the best way is by servicing your air conditioner early. Servicing your air conditioner as early in the season as possible offers many benefits to you and your family. During the hot, humid Cincinnati summer, a working air conditioner isn’t just a luxury—it’s essential. It can be a difficult time to get emergency service as service technicians are often heavily booked.  Also, dealing with minor issues early is more cost-effective than waiting until they cause major breakdowns later. Take the opportunity now, before the weather heats up, to schedule a maintenance call with a qualified HVAC contractor.
