How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One unpleasant surprise that can wreak havoc on a warm summer’s day in Racine is a failing air conditioner. Your home is typically 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 situation 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 stop an air conditioner failure and take full advantage of your summer? The key to stopping a failure and the expected air conditioning service appointment is to be proactive! Instead of an emergency air conditioning call, why not plan ahead and schedule preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance appointment performed by the experts at Keystone Heating & Air Conditioning Co., Inc is your first and strongest line of defense against lots of problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll make sure that everything is operating as it should and look for things that could be potential problems in a matter of time. We’ll take care of those impending problems before they grow into costlier problems that leave you in the boiling heat of summer.

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

  • Frequently 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 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.
