How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One factor that can wreak havoc on a warm summer’s day in Mechanicsville is a failing air conditioner. Your house is typically the cool place you rest 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 state calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got better things to do with your vacation time than wait for your AC to get fixed. So, how can you stop an air conditioner failure and take full advantage of your summer? The key to stopping a failure and the expected air conditioning service appointment is to be proactive! Instead of an emergency air conditioning call, why not plan ahead and book preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance checkup performed by the pros at M & S Heating & Air LLC is your first and strongest line of defense against many problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll make sure that everything is operating as it should and look for things that could be likely problems later on. We’ll take care of those potential problems before they grow into costlier problems that leave you in the scorching heat of summer.

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

  • Regularly 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 prematurely.
