How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One unpleasant surprise that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Mount Pleasant is a failing air conditioner. Your home is typically 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 state calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got better 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 expected 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 Olde Towne Heating & Air is your first and soundest line of defense against many problems that can end in AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll make sure 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 potential problems before they grow into costlier problems that leave you in the sweltering heat of summer.

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

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

Before things heat up this summer, contact Olde Towne Heating & Air to make sure your AC is prepped for the challenge! You’ll be glad you did.
