How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One factor that can wreak havoc on a warm summer’s day in Opelika is a failing air conditioner. Your space 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 situation calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more exciting 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 preventing 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 arrange preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance checkup performed by the pros at Farnell Mechanical, Inc. is your first and strongest line of defense against many 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 look 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 boiling heat of summer.

Some other ideas 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.
  • Confirming 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 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 prematurely.
