How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One unpleasant surprise that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Middletown is a failing air conditioner. Your house 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 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 avoiding a failure and the expected 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 appointment performed by the experts at Schagrin Gas 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 make sure that everything is running as it should and monitor for things that could be likely problems down the road. We’ll take care of those impending problems before they grow into expensive problems that leave you in the sweltering heat of summer.

Some other tips 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 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 affect 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.

Before things heat up this summer, call Schagrin Gas Company to make sure your AC is prepped for the challenge! You’ll be happy you did.
