How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One factor that can ruin a warm summer’s day in Lexington is a failing air conditioner. Your home is usually 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 miserable 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 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 call, why not plan ahead and schedule preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance checkup performed by the pros at James Heating & A/C, Inc is your first and soundest line of defense against lots of problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll make sure that everything is running as it should and monitor for things that could be possible problems down the road. We’ll take care of those impending problems before they grow into costlier problems that leave you in the sweltering heat of summer.

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

  • Regularly checking and switching 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 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 than it should.
