AC Maintenance: Vital During a Heat Wave

When a heat wave strikes Colorado, your air conditioning system becomes your best friend. To ensure it continues to function efficiently and keeps your home cool, you need to take some practical steps, including scheduling regular AC maintenance. Here’s what you can do to keep your AC running smoothly during extreme temperatures, and why calling Goodfellas Heating & Cooling can save you from sweltering in the heat.

Practical Steps for AC Efficiency During a Heat Wave

1. Clean or Replace Air Filters: Dirty filters can restrict airflow and make your AC work harder than it needs to. Check your air filters and clean or replace them regularly to maintain optimal airflow and efficiency.

2. Check the Thermostat: Ensure your thermostat is working correctly and set it to a reasonable temperature.

3. Clear the Area Around the Outdoor Unit: Make sure there is no debris, plants, or other obstructions around your outdoor unit. Good airflow around the unit is essential for efficient operation.

4. Keep Blinds and Curtains Closed: Reduce the amount of heat entering your home by keeping blinds and curtains closed during the hottest parts of the day. This can help your AC maintain a cooler indoor temperature without working overtime.

5. Schedule Regular AC Maintenance: Preventative maintenance can help identify and fix small issues before they become major problems. Schedule a maintenance check with Goodfellas Heating & Cooling to ensure your system is in top shape.

Signs Your AC Needs Professional Attention

Even with the best care, sometimes your AC needs professional help. If you notice any of the following signs, it’s time to call Goodfellas Heating & Cooling for AC repair:

– Reduced Airflow: If the air coming from your vents seems weak, there could be a problem with the compressor or ductwork.
– Unusual Noises: Grinding, squealing, or banging noises are not normal and could indicate a serious issue.
– Warm Air: If your AC is blowing warm air, it might be low on refrigerant or have a compressor problem.
– Frequent Cycling: Rapid cycling, or turning on and off frequently, can signal an issue with the thermostat or electrical components.
– High Humidity: If your home feels more humid than usual, your AC might not be removing moisture properly.

My A/C unit would run but was not emitting cold air in my condo. So Shawn from GoodFellas came out to check it out and end result- I needed a new unit! So a new unit was installed the next day by Jay and Rodger. I have to say that all three individuals were very pleasant to work, explained their steps as installing and ensuring everything worked in excellent condition! These guys answered all my concerns, questions and we felt very comfortable to work with… A new thermostat was also installed as well as Good Fellas also sent their electricians to replace an outdated Disconnect for the new A/C unit. With all this service and new equipment installed, it’s another aspect of my condo staying safe!! Thanks to great techs, reps, electricians & staff @ GoodFellas!!!

Excellent service by all involved. Travis Bond and Levi Swanson ,the electricians, were very professional in verifying that everything was correct for our pending air conditioner install. Especially checking the breaker box. Rodney and Jerry did the air conditioner install and and were meticulous in their preparation and follow thru to completion.They made sure everything worked correctly before leaving and answered all our questions. I highly re commend GoodFellas for your HVAC and electrical needs. Terry and Kenya Nolte

Great service from the scheduling folks to our HVAC tech Gus. I was impressed with Gus's quick diagnosis and he did a detailed inspection of both of our outdoor AC unites. I will definitely be using Goodfellas Heating and Cooling in the future.

I can't speak highly enough about EVERYONE at Goodfellas! Our 22 year old AC unit died during the first hot week of the year. Goodfellas was out that day and we got the AC unit installed very quickly. Everyone from the office (they picked up my call at 6:30 AM!), from Sean to the entire install team. They are very professional and courteous. I really am so glad that they are on my home team. The previous owners of our house used Goodfellas to install the furnace and water heater in 2017 and we have continued to keep them for our annual maintenance (highly recommend getting this plan) for your peace of mind. Call Goodfellas! They are such a great team to have working for you. Thank you to everyone at the company - really appreciate all your service and experience!

In February 2024, I had a new heater installed. Initially, I experienced some problems with the new thermostat, which was promptly replaced. Fast forward to May, when I started using the air conditioner, I found my home was not cooling properly. Scott came to fix it right away, and I’m very grateful for the quick response. Although I didn’t catch all the names, one of the technicians, a new guy from Iowa who is currently in school and learning, was especially polite and professional. I believe he will be a great asset to your company. The team was efficient, quick to install the unit, and exhibited excellent manners throughout the process. Scott was the first to assist in February and, hopefully, the last I needed to call for a while after his visit last night. From dealing with freezing temperatures to resolving issues in the heat, everyone went above and beyond to help me. Overall, I had a great experience with your customer service and the speed at which the team addressed my concerns. Thank you for your outstanding service!
