Your condenser coil needs to be cleaned. This is where the heat is transferred to the outside. If you compare it to your car radiator you would not ride
Clean your drain line. Make sure nothing is blocking the drain. Sludge can cause drainage issues.
Check pressures of refrigerant. A small leak can cause the temperature of the coil to ice up, block air flow and the unit will run longer to keep you cool.

Below is an actual promotion piece sent to me today by a Major Manufacturer of cooling equipment. There are times when due to rust we are unable to remove old blade, or when trying to remove it with a blade puller it will get distorted or due to looseness of hub or blades it will create extra drag on new motor and needs to be replaced, BUT we will NEVER charge you for a part you do not need just so it will look shiny.
Again there are times when due to age, locked up on shaft and other reasons we will need to replace the fan blade along with the motor, but the key word here is NEED, and we will show and explain to you why we feel is necessary. Not just to make it look pretty and make us and the manufacturer more money.

Great news! We have instock the NEST thermostat.
It is a learning thermostat. The EPA eliminated the Energy Star rebates on programable thermostats because it found out that only 11% are successfully programmed to save energy. The nest will learn your living habits for the first week and then program itself to save you energy!
It is wi-fi capable so you can check temperture from your I-phone, I-pad or on line. Coming home earlier than normal? go online and the house will be warm when you get there. With the wi fi enabled you can chart your actual energy savings. It lets you know when you are saving energy and how long it will take to heat or cool your house to the new setting when you make a change. More details can be found online at www.nest.com .
And its pretty!
The price is $249.00
It is designed to be installed by Homeowner, but if you would rather not mess with turning the power off and installing the electrical wires, installation is availible from Edens for a nominal charge.
Most thermostats are now digital which is a more precise temperature control, they do not have to be mounted exactly level and are much safer and better for the environment. NO Mercury!
You can also choose programmable or non programmable. We are starting to see a trend toward the same thermostat that can be programmable or not by sliding a switch on back.
Programmable thermostats can really save you money. You can drop the temperature in the house during the coldest part of each 24 hour (night time) after you are under the covers and staying warm. Let your house heat up ten degrees less and have it set to turn on thirty minutes before you get out from under the covers and you will never know you had it set back until you see your greatly reduced utility bill.
In the summer time, you can do the same thing during the day if no one is in the house and by doing that you can easily see a overall reduction of 20% or more.
We sell and recommend our own branded thermostats. Over the years we have tried many types and brands and this line is very dependable and for the price , we feel like the best value out there, they have proven much more dependable than the cheapo thermostats sold by the big box stores. When you purchase one from us, the installation is included in the price, along with a 5 year warranty if it goes bad and we come to your house and replace it.
We also have wireless thermostats which makes it possible to install a thermostat where it needs to be instead of where the builder put it , not knowing your furniture location.
