How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One factor that can ruin a warm summer’s day in Derby is a failing air conditioner. Your home is typically 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 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 avoiding 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 checkup performed by the experts at Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning is your first and strongest line of defense against lots of problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll ensure that everything is running as it should and look for things that could be likely problems down the road. 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 running as it should are:

  • Regularly checking and switching your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your home.
  • 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 block 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.
