With temperatures finally starting to creep up in Nashville, it’s natural to assume your air conditioner is going to work harder. The two go hand-in-hand, and all is dandy until the hottest day of summer shows up and you come home to the realization that your air conditioner stopped working. What now?
You have come to rely on your air conditioner when the heat hits its peak, and we all know that summers in Nashville can bring some unexpectedly high temps, so why do we seem to always be surprised when they arrive? There’s no way around the increasing temperatures during the summer, but there are a couple things you can do to ensure your air conditioner is ready to take care of them. It’s difficult to get an accurate idea of the health of your air conditioner if you don’t have annual maintenance completed, and this is even more relevant to systems that are more than 10 years old.
Even if your system is five years old or newer, if you haven’t had a tune-up performed, you can run the risk of having it quit working at the worst possible time, which seems to happen about every time. It doesn’t matter if you’re heading out for a business trip or you’re planning on having company this weekend, having your air conditioner quit working never happens at a convenient time. So when the inevitable happens, it’s important to know that you have a resource in the team at Donelson Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning that you can call on 24/7 in Nashville. It doesn’t matter if you’ve just decided to schedule air conditioner service or you’re in need of emergency AC repair, our team is only a call away at 615-953-9885.
Having a non-running air conditioner isn’t fun even if it doesn’t occur during the summer months.

While there are a nearly endless number of problems that can show up with air conditioners, there are a couple that come up more than others, such as:
- Lapsed Maintenance – Think of annual air conditioner service like it’s an oil change your car. Not only does it serve a crucial purpose for performance, if you don’t do it you’ll start noticing other issues coming up as a result. Staying on top of annual AC system maintenance means that your system will get the attention it requires as well as helping stop problems before they become big issues. Plus, when you have maintenance completed you stand a better chance of increasing your system’s efficiency and maybe even decreasing your energy expenses.
- Deteriorating Components – If your air conditioner isn’t being maintained routinely, there’s a chance that essential parts to your system’s function are slowly being negatively changed. Ranging from the compressor and fan to a number of other parts, if your system isn’t operating at its best, you run the risk of having the parts wear down. A possible sign of this is if your air conditioner cycles on and off regularly, placing an unnecessary amount of stress on the parts and perhaps leading to system failure.
- Thermostat Problems – Thermostats play a larger role in your comfort than they are given credit for, and while it’s easy to view them as the place to turn the temperature up and down, if they aren’t taken care of, you might be feeling the effects. It can be something as easy as changing out your battery or it could be something more like an improperly calibrated thermostat sensor, but either way, it could alter the performance of your AC.
Facing an AC repair doesn’t have to feel hard or like it’s the end of the world.
