How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One unpleasant surprise that can ruin a warm summer’s day in Lincoln is a failing air conditioner. Your home is usually 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 state calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more exciting things to do with your summer days 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 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 schedule preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance tune-up performed by the experts at AW Heating & Air Conditioning is your first and strongest line of defense against lots of problems that can end in 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 likely problems in a matter of time. We’ll take care of those impending problems before they grow into expensive problems that leave you in the sweltering 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 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 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 than it should.
