How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One unpleasant surprise that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Lincoln 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 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 stop an air conditioner failure and take full advantage of your summer? The key to stopping 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 checkup performed by the pros at AW Heating & Air Conditioning is your first and strongest line of defense against lots of problems that can cause an 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:

  • Regularly checking and replacing 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 prematurely.

Before things heat up this summer, reach out to AW Heating & Air Conditioning to make sure your AC is ready for the challenge! You’ll be glad you did.
