How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One thing that can ruin a warm summer’s day in Ellsworth is a failing air conditioner. Your house is usually 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 more fun 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 stopping 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 checkup performed by the pros at Walter's-Eaton's Electric, Plumbing, Heating & AC 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 check that everything is running as it should and monitor for things that could be likely problems in a matter of time. We’ll take care of those potential problems before they grow into expensive problems that leave you in the sweltering heat of summer.

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

  • Repeatedly checking and changing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your space.
  • 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 prematurely.
