How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One factor that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Marshalltown is a failing air conditioner. Your house 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 devastating 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 stopping 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 book preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance tune-up performed by the pros at B & G HVAC is your first and strongest line of defense against lots of problems that can cause an AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll ensure that everything is running as it should and check for things that could be likely problems later on. We’ll take care of those budding 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 running 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 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 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 earlier in its life.
