How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One unpleasant surprise that can ruin a warm summer’s day in Excelsior Springs is a failing air conditioner. Your home 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 miserable situation. This condition calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more fun things to do with your 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 service, why not plan ahead and arrange preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance appointment performed by the experts at Colvin's Heating and Cooling 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 make sure that everything is working as it should and monitor for things that could be potential problems in a matter of time. We’ll take care of those potential problems before they grow into costlier problems that leave you in the boiling heat of summer.

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

  • Regularly checking and changing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your space.
  • Making sure 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.

Before things heat up this summer, reach out to Colvin's Heating and Cooling to make sure your AC is primed for the challenge! You’ll be glad you did.
