How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One thing that can wreak havoc on a warm summer’s day in Ballwin and St. Charles is a failing air conditioner. Your home is typically the cool place you go 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 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 stopping a failure and the avoidable air conditioning service appointment is to be proactive! Instead of an emergency air conditioning repair, why not plan ahead and arrange preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance tune-up performed by the team at Air Alliance Team is your first and soundest line of defense against a number of problems that can cause an 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 potential problems later on. We’ll take care of those potential problems before they grow into costly problems that leave you in the sweltering heat of summer.

Some other things 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 space.
  • 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, reach out to Air Alliance Team to make sure your AC is primed for the challenge! You’ll be happy you did.
