How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One factor that can wreak havoc on a warm summer’s day in Greensburg 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 situation 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 prevent an air conditioner failure and take full advantage of your summer? The key to preventing 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 book preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance tune-up performed by the pros at Wallpe Heating & Cooling is your first and greatest line of defense against a number of problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll check that everything is working as it should and look for things that could be likely problems down the road. We’ll take care of those budding problems before they grow into expensive 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:

  • Repeatedly checking and changing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your home.
  • Making sure 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 affect 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.
