How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One factor that can wreak havoc on a warm summer’s day in Heflin is a failing air conditioner. Your home is normally 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 sad situation. This state calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got better things to do with your vacation time 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 avoiding a failure and the inevitable air conditioning service appointment is to be proactive! Instead of an emergency air conditioning service, why not plan ahead and arrange preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance checkup performed by the experts at Bain Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc is your first and soundest line of defense against lots of problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll ensure that everything is working as it should and check for things that could be possible problems down the road. We’ll take care of those budding problems before they grow into costlier problems that leave you in the boiling heat of summer.

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

  • Regularly checking and changing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your home.
  • Ensuring 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 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.
