Once you’ve reported that your air conditioning isn’t working, the landlord is given what’s considered to be a reasonable time to fix it. In general, a reasonable time would be within seven days or more.
A reasonable time is defined differently in different states. In California, for example, it could go as high as 30 days. For the state of Texas, it’s generally considered seven days. Your landlord has an obligation to restore your AC to an operational level.
It’s important to note that the tenant has an obligation as well. When the air conditioning in your apartment begins to show signs of malfunctioning, be sure to let your landlord know immediately. There are steps they can take to repair the unit before it completely breaks down. Regular maintenance helps to identify small problems before they become larger ones.
Recommendations for Maintanance
Below are three recommendations to help ensure that your AC runs smoothly all summer long throughout Ingram and the surrounding areas.
1. Keep Up With Annual Tune-up Services
The annual tune-up includes a thorough inspection to check the temperature fluctuations, refrigerant pressure, blower motor capacitator, and more. Our highly trained HVAC technicians also inspect and clean the condenser coil to remove any build-up of dirt, dust particles, and moisture.
2. Change the Air Filter
Trade-Mark Air Conditioning recommends that homeowners change the filter regularly for optimum results. Otherwise, a dirty filter could obstruct the free flow of air. Additionally, changing the filter helps increase the lifespan of your AC unit by reducing unnecessary wear and tear.
3. Maintain Clean Air Ducts and Vents
It’s important to keep the air ducts and vents clean all year long. Routine preventive maintenance of these AC components will even help to improve the air quality in your home while providing increased airflow. Your house or apartment will feel noticeably cooler and more comfortable even on those hot and humid Texas summer days.
