“Can My AC Still Perform in Extreme Heat?”

Given where we live, the question of extreme heat and how it plays a role in our air conditioning use is understandable. An air conditioner can only be so powerful, right?

Well here’s the good news–your air conditioner is literally designed to handle high heat. And depending on how efficient of a cooling system you have, yours might not ever struggle.
