During the spring months, millions of people flock to Arizona to watch the MLB spring training games. The games serve as an opportunity for players to brush off a little rust and get ready for the new season. Arizona is a great place for these leagues as the climate is perfect for a baseball game. Fans come wearing short sleeves and shorts to watch these athletes get ready for the grind they are about to embark on, as they start a new season.
How does this apply to your air conditioning unit? Spring has one problem in Arizona, summer comes next!

Here are 3 things to look for, that may mean you need to call in a “RELIEVER.”
Dirty Air Filters and Clogged Coils - After sitting idle for a few months' dirt, leaves, and other debris could lead to dirty air filters and clogged coils. When you are finally ready to pump on the AC, make sure your unit is clean and debris free. If you smell an odor, it is time to make the call.
Electrical Issues - typically, AC units in Arizona sit on your home's roof. This type of exposure to the sun's rays and constant sweltering heat plays havoc on your AC unit's electrical components. This can lead to electrical issues that cause your unit to run inefficiently or stop working at all. In Arizona, this can be very dangerous, especially when it is 117 degrees outside. And if you wait until it breaks down, it can lead to costly repairs.
Check for Leaks - If you’ve ever taken a good look at your air conditioning unit, you may have noticed a small drip line on the outside. This is the condensate drain, which plays an important role in removing condensation produced by your air conditioner's evaporator coil. If the line isn’t properly cleaned, algae and mold can grow inside and clog the drain, causing elevated humidity, musty odors and water leaks that can damage the inside of your home.
Spring is the time to prepare for the battle ahead and be ready to play in the big game. Your home's big game is making it through this summer without any major air conditioning issues. The last thing you need in the middle of summer is for a problem to happen with your AC unit. Making sure your unit is ready for the season is a vital investment and ensures when your favorite team is playing on TV, you and your family can enjoy every minute of it!
