Summer time is the worst season for the AC to have problems.
My family and I live in Clearwater Beach, just outside of the Tampa Bay area.
The weather during the spring, summer, and fall months is very warm and humid. I believe it is nearly impossible to go without an air conditioner in this part of the country. The heat and humidity make it difficult to breathe at times. I have a difficult time going outside for more than a couple of hours during the heat of Summer. Last summer we had an issue with the AC. I woke up with the kids about an hour after my hubby left for work. It was 80 degrees inside of the house even though I had the air conditioner running and set on 70. My husband thought it was warm when he got up that morning, but he was in a hurry and never stopped to look at the thermostat. The problem probably occurred in the middle of the night, but I did not know for sure. I contacted a Clearwater Beach HVAC service provider. Because it was Saturday, I had trouble finding someone to help on the same day. Most places wanted me to wait until Monday or pay a weekend service fee. I contacted 10 different companies before I found a service provider that did not charge any extra weekend fees. They had someone ready and available to help. The HVAC technician turned out to be one of my friends’ kids. I thought he worked for a Clearwater Beach HVAC service provider, but I didn’t know which one.
