How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One unpleasant surprise that can ruin a warm summer’s day in Carpentersville is a failing air conditioner. Your home 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 devastating situation. This condition calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more exciting things to do with your time 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 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 checkup performed by the experts at Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc is your first and strongest line of defense against a number of problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll ensure that everything is operating as it should and look for things that could be likely problems later on. 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 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 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.
