How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One thing that can wreak havoc on a warm summer’s day in McMurray is a failing air conditioner. Your house is usually the cool place you relax 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 situation calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more exciting things to do with your vacation 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 service, why not plan ahead and arrange preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance checkup performed by the experts at Kowalski Heating, Cooling & Plumbing is your first and greatest line of defense against lots of problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll make sure that everything is operating as it should and check for things that could be potential problems later on. We’ll take care of those potential problems before they grow into expensive problems that leave you in the scorching heat of summer.

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

  • Repeatedly checking and replacing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your home.
  • Confirming 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 impact 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.
