How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One unpleasant surprise that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Dresden 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 miserable situation. This condition calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more fun 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 preventing 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 schedule preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance checkup performed by the experts at McFadden Heating & Cooling is your first and greatest line of defense against lots 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 check for things that could be likely problems down the road. We’ll take care of those impending 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 operating as it should are:

  • Frequently checking and switching your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your house.
  • Making sure your AC equipment isn’t blocked 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 earlier in its life.
