How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One factor that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Scottsboro is a failing air conditioner. Your home 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 state calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more exciting things to do with your summer days 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 avoidable air conditioning service appointment is to be proactive! Instead of an emergency air conditioning repair, why not plan ahead and schedule preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance checkup performed by the experts at Southern Heating & Cooling Inc. is your first and soundest line of defense against many problems that can cause an AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll check that everything is working as it should and check for things that could be likely problems later on. We’ll take care of those impending problems before they grow into costlier 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 replacing 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 than it should.
