How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One unpleasant surprise that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Carpentersville is a failing air conditioner. Your house 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 devastating situation. This condition calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got better 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 preventing a failure and the inevitable air conditioning service appointment is to be proactive! Instead of an emergency air conditioning repair, why not plan ahead and arrange preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance checkup performed by the pros at Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc is your first and soundest line of defense against many problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll ensure that everything is operating as it should and monitor for things that could be likely problems later on. We’ll take care of those budding 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 working as it should are:

  • Repeatedly checking and changing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your house.
  • Ensuring your AC equipment isn’t obstructed 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.
