When it comes to major AC system repair in Covington, GA, a dead compressor is one of the biggest. The compressor is the literal heart of an air conditioner because it’s what makes refrigerant circulate to carry heat from inside the house to the outside. The compressor uses a powerful motor to run, and if the motor burns out, the compressor will fail. 

You may have heard the conventional wisdom that when a compressor dies, it means the end of the line for the entire AC. Replacing a compressor is expensive, which makes the prospect of replacing the entire system more attractive. 

But is it always true that a failed compressor means you have to replace your AC? Follow us below and we’ll answer that.

Humidity Is Bad News in Summer for More Than One Reason

Monday, May 24th, 2021

Although we’re used to thinking of humidity as an all-around negative, that’s not true. In fact, during a cool winter day, a rise in humidity takes the edge off the colder temperatures and makes it easier to stay warm. Humidity also keeps skin moisturized and prevents dried-out sinuses.

But these are all winter issues, and we’re now at the end of spring, with temperatures and humidity on the rise. Nobody likes high humidity in the summer! 

You can’t do much about high humidity levels outdoors, but there are solutions to help inside your home.
