How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One unpleasant surprise that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Midlothian 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 devastating situation. This situation calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more exciting things to do with your 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 service, why not plan ahead and arrange preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance appointment performed by the team at Daniel's Heating & Refrigeration Corp. 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 operating as it should and monitor for things that could be possible problems down the road. We’ll take care of those potential problems before they grow into expensive 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:

  • Frequently checking and changing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your house.
  • Making sure 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 prematurely.

Before things heat up this summer, reach out to Daniel's Heating & Refrigeration Corp. to make sure your AC is ready for the challenge! You’ll be glad you did.
