How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One thing that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Savage is a failing air conditioner. Your house is normally 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 miserable situation. This situation calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more fun things to do with your vacation 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 avoidable 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 tune-up performed by the team at Gopher Heating and Air Conditioning is your first and greatest line of defense against many problems that can cause an AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll ensure that everything is operating as it should and check for things that could be potential problems down the road. 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 ideas you can do to help keep your air conditioner running as it should are:

  • Repeatedly checking and changing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your home.
  • Ensuring 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 in its life.
