How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One unpleasant surprise that can ruin a warm summer’s day in Kearney is a failing air conditioner. Your space 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 sad 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 avoid 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 service, why not plan ahead and schedule preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance checkup performed by the pros at Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning 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 make sure that everything is running as it should and look for things that could be likely problems in a matter of time. We’ll take care of those budding problems before they grow into costlier problems that leave you in the sweltering heat of summer.

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

  • Frequently 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 than it should.
