How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One thing that can ruin a warm summer’s day in Kearney is a failing air conditioner. Your home 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 state 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 preventing a failure and the inevitable air conditioning service appointment is to be proactive! Instead of an emergency air conditioning call, why not plan ahead and book preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance tune-up performed by the experts at Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning is your first and soundest 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 possible problems later on. We’ll take care of those budding problems before they grow into costly problems that leave you in the sweltering heat of summer.

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

  • Frequently checking and replacing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your space.
  • Making sure your AC equipment isn’t obstructed 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.
