How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One unpleasant surprise that can wreak havoc on a warm summer’s day in Bloomfield is a failing air conditioner. Your house 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 miserable situation. This condition calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got better 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 preventing 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 schedule preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance checkup performed by the team at Stanford Heating & Cooling 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 ensure that everything is operating as it should and monitor for things that could be potential problems in a matter of time. We’ll take care of those impending problems before they grow into costly problems that leave you in the scorching heat of summer.

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

  • Frequently checking and changing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your home.
  • Making sure 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 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 earlier than it should.
