  • Common Air Conditioner Problems & Repairs

    It’s summer. It’s hot. And your air conditioner isn’t working. One night in a room without air conditioning is usually enough to make any Washington area resident miserable. SSI understands this and strives to help any customer quickly get their air conditioner repaired and running again.

    There is no shortage of causes for a broken air conditioner, but there tend to be a few that are most common. To better understand the repairs that you may one day come across, here are some of the basics:

    Emergency Air Conditioning Repairs in Northern VA

    It’s an all too common refrain during the summer months – the uncomfortable high temperatures turn dangerous, even deadly, especially for the elderly and children. In the Washington area, where humidity levels run high, the body’s ability to cool itself is further compromised, leaving area residents vulnerable to anything from heat cramps to heat stroke. SSI understands this danger, and is quick to respond anytime a customer is without a working air conditioner.

    Summertime Tips for Reducing Humidity in Your Home

    Anyone who has spent a summer day in Washington DC or Northern Virginia knows what humidity feels like: the thick, heavy air that leaves your skin wet and your clothes sticking to your body. But high humidity (or water vapor), is not limited to the great outdoors, nor is it limited to the summer months. If not properly monitored, moisture levels in the home can also creep up, providing a breeding ground for allergens that make you cough, sneeze, and feel fatigued.

    Summer Vacation for Your Air Conditioner?

    It’s summertime and you’re headed out of town. While you’ve stopped the mail and held the newspaper, have you determined what to do with your air conditioner? Many people may leave the air conditioning running at full blast, but unless you’re leaving a pet behind, you’re wasting energy - and money - to refrigerate an empty home.

    It's Getting Hot in Nothern Virginia This Summer!

    After the extreme winter weather of 2013-2104, it may be hard to imagine a summer with equal extremes. But if you like the tropics, you’re in luck.  The Farmer’s Almanac – the quintessential predictor of all things dealing with Mother Nature – is calling for heavy rain and extreme heat.  As the Almanac describes it: “Out of the freezer, (and) into the Fire!"
