How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One thing that can wreak havoc on a warm summer’s day in New Castle 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 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 avoid an air conditioner failure and take full advantage of your summer? The key to avoiding a failure and the expected air conditioning service appointment is to be proactive! Instead of an emergency air conditioning repair, why not plan ahead and book preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance checkup performed by the experts at Central Heating & Plumbing is your first and strongest line of defense against lots of problems that can cause an AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll ensure that everything is working as it should and monitor for things that could be potential problems in a matter of time. We’ll take care of those potential problems before they grow into costlier problems that leave you in the scorching heat of summer.

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

  • Frequently checking and changing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your space.
  • 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 prematurely.
