How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One unpleasant surprise that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Mount Pleasant is a failing air conditioner. Your space 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 sad situation. This condition calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got better 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 repair, why not plan ahead and schedule preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance tune-up performed by the experts at Olde Towne Heating & Air is your first and greatest line of defense against lots of problems that can end in AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll check that everything is operating as it should and look for things that could be possible problems later on. 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 ideas you can do to help keep your air conditioner operating as it should are:

  • Repeatedly checking and changing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your home.
  • Making sure your AC equipment isn’t clogged 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 impact airflow. The harder your AC has to work, the less efficient it’ll be—and the more likely it’ll be to break down prematurely.
