How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One factor that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Excelsior Springs is a failing air conditioner. Your space 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 vacation time than wait for your AC to get fixed. So, how can you stop an air conditioner failure and take full advantage of your summer? The key to stopping 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 checkup performed by the team at Colvin's Heating and Cooling is your first and soundest line of defense against a number of problems that can cause an AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll check that everything is running as it should and check for things that could be possible problems later on. We’ll take care of those potential problems before they grow into costly problems that leave you in the sweltering 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 house.
  • Confirming 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 earlier than it should.
