How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One thing that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Zelienople is a failing air conditioner. Your house 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 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 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 tune-up performed by the team at Knoechel Heating Company is your first and greatest line of defense against a number of problems that can end in AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll ensure 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 potential problems before they grow into costlier problems that leave you in the scorching heat of summer.

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

  • Repeatedly checking and replacing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your house.
  • Ensuring your AC equipment isn’t clogged 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 prematurely.
