How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One factor that can ruin a warm summer’s day in Alice 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 sad situation. This state calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more exciting 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 stopping a failure and the avoidable 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 tune-up performed by the pros at Rescue Heating & Air is your first and strongest line of defense against lots of problems that can end in AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll check that everything is running as it should and look for things that could be possible problems later on. We’ll take care of those potential problems before they grow into costlier problems that leave you in the sweltering heat of summer.

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

  • Repeatedly checking and switching your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your home.
  • Confirming 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 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 Rescue Heating & Air to make sure your AC is primed for the challenge! You’ll be happy you did.
