How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One factor that can ruin a warm summer’s day in Marshalltown is a failing air conditioner. Your house is usually 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 devastating situation. This condition calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more exciting things to do with your summer days 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 preventing 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 schedule preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance tune-up performed by the team at B & G HVAC is your first and greatest line of defense against many problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll ensure that everything is operating as it should and look for things that could be potential problems down the road. We’ll take care of those potential problems before they grow into costly problems that leave you in the boiling heat of summer.

Some other tips 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 home.
  • Ensuring 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 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 prematurely.

Before things heat up this summer, call B & G HVAC to make sure your AC is ready for the challenge! You’ll be pleased you did.
