How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One thing that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Thedford is a failing air conditioner. Your space is usually the cool place you rest when you’ve had enough of the heat outdoors. But when it’s actually WARMER inside than it is outside, it can be a pretty sad situation. This condition calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more exciting things to do with your time than wait for your AC to get fixed. So, how can you prevent an air conditioner failure and take full advantage of your summer? The key to avoiding a failure and the inevitable air conditioning service appointment is to be proactive! Instead of an emergency air conditioning repair, why not plan ahead and arrange preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance appointment performed by the pros at Taylor's Heating & Air Conditioning is your first and soundest line of defense against lots of problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll check that everything is running as it should and monitor for things that could be possible problems later on. We’ll take care of those potential problems before they grow into costly problems that leave you in the scorching heat of summer.

Some other things you can do to help keep your air conditioner running as it should are:

  • Frequently checking and changing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your space.
  • Ensuring your AC equipment isn’t obstructed by any plant life or debris. Check to ensure that your air returns aren’t covered by furniture or drapery or anything else that could block airflow. The harder your AC has to work, the less efficient it’ll be—and the more likely it’ll be to break down prematurely.
