How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One unpleasant surprise that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Perry is a failing air conditioner. Your house is typically the cool place you go 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 better 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 inevitable 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 experts at Gillman Heating and Air is your first and soundest line of defense against a number of problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll ensure that everything is working 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 costlier problems that leave you in the boiling heat of summer.

Some other tips 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 house.
  • Confirming your AC equipment isn’t clogged 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.
