How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One factor that can ruin a warm summer’s day in Anchorage is a failing air conditioner. Your space is normally 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 fun 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 arrange preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance tune-up performed by the experts at Discount Mechanical Heating & Plumbing Services is your first and strongest line of defense against a number of 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 check for things that could be possible problems down the road. We’ll take care of those impending problems before they grow into costly problems that leave you in the boiling heat of summer.

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

  • Regularly checking and changing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your home.
  • 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 block 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.

Before things heat up this summer, reach out to Discount Mechanical Heating & Plumbing Services to make sure your AC is prepped for the challenge! You’ll be happy you did.
