How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One unpleasant surprise that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Carpentersville is a failing air conditioner. Your house is normally the cool place you relax 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 more fun things to do with your vacation time 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 preventing a failure and the avoidable air conditioning service appointment is to be proactive! Instead of an emergency air conditioning call, why not plan ahead and arrange preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance appointment performed by the pros at Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc is your first and greatest line of defense against many problems that can cause an AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll ensure that everything is running as it should and check for things that could be possible problems in a matter of time. We’ll take care of those impending problems before they grow into costlier problems that leave you in the scorching 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 space.
  • 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 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 than it should.
