How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One thing that can wreak havoc on a warm summer’s day in Mount Hope is a failing air conditioner. Your space 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 time than wait for your AC to get fixed. So, how can you stop 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 arrange preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance tune-up performed by the team at Appalachian Heating is your first and soundest line of defense against lots of problems that can end in AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll check that everything is working as it should and check for things that could be likely 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 working as it should are:

  • Frequently checking and replacing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your house.
  • 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.

Before things heat up this summer, call Appalachian Heating to make sure your AC is prepped for the challenge! You’ll be happy you did.
