August and September often bring out the hottest weather of the summer. That can spell bad news for air conditioning systems which have already put in several months of hard work keeping homes chilled and comfortable.

We don’t want you stuck with a failed air conditioner during the dog days of summer—although you can always depend on us for air conditioning repair in Eden Prairie, MN or elsewhere in the Twin Cities when you need it. We have advice to help you lessen the cooling load on your air conditioning system and see that it remains reliable until it shuts off at the end of the year.

Spoilers for this post: You probably don’t need more refrigerant! If you do, it’s a repair situation.

We thought we’d get the crucial information out of the way first, because people often have mistaken assumptions about how air conditioners use refrigerant. They might hear from a source that it’s a good idea to get the refrigerant “topped off” before summer rolls around, or that you’ll need to have routine refrigerant refills to ensure the AC doesn’t run out of it.

To which we’ll ask: “When was the last time you needed to have the refrigerant in your refrigerator refilled?” We’ll bet the answer is never—unless the refrigerator was broken.

Well, the refrigerant in an air conditioning system is the same. Unless the AC is leaking refrigerant (in which case call us for air conditioning repair in Eden Prairie, MN), you won’t need to have any additional refrigerant put into it during the system’s service life.

white-question-mark-on-blue-circleShort-cycling can be as ominous of a phrase as it sounds. Unfortunately, it’s also a relatively common malfunction within HVAC systems. That is, if the system was not properly installed to begin with, or if you don’t have it professionally maintained on a regular basis.

To give you a short description of what short-cycling is, it’s when the compressor of your air conditioning system turns on and off in rapid succession–to quickly to actually finish a cooling cycle, and too fast for your air conditioner to effectively manage. Keep reading to learn more.
