How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One factor that can wreak havoc on a warm summer’s day in Plainfield is a failing air conditioner. Your home is normally 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 miserable situation. This condition calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got better things to do with your summer days 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 preventing 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 schedule preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance tune-up performed by the team at PWA Heating & Cooling Inc is your first and greatest line of defense against lots of problems that can cause an AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll check that everything is operating as it should and check for things that could be possible problems later on. We’ll take care of those impending problems before they grow into costly problems that leave you in the sweltering heat of summer.

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

  • Frequently checking and replacing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your home.
  • Confirming your AC equipment isn’t blocked 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 earlier than it should.
