How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One thing that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Brandon is a failing air conditioner. Your space is normally 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 condition calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got better 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 inevitable 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 appointment performed by the experts at Brandon Heating and Plumbing is your first and strongest line of defense against many problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll check that everything is running as it should and check for things that could be likely problems down the road. 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 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 house.
  • 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 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 in its life.
