How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One factor that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Cottonwood is a failing air conditioner. Your space is usually 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 more exciting things to do with your summer days than wait for your AC to get fixed. So, how can you avoid 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 checkup performed by the experts at Connolly Electric & Mechanical 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 check 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 potential problems before they grow into costly problems that leave you in the boiling heat of summer.

Some other ideas you can do to help keep your air conditioner running as it should are:

  • Frequently checking and changing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your home.
  • Confirming 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 impact 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.
