How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One factor that can wreak havoc on a warm summer’s day in Macon is a failing air conditioner. Your home is usually the cool place you relax 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 sad situation. This state calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more fun things to do with your summer days than wait for your AC to get fixed. So, how can you prevent an air conditioner failure and take full advantage of your summer? The key to preventing a failure and the inevitable 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 tune-up performed by the team at Air Temperature Control is your first and strongest line of defense against lots of problems that can cause an AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll check that everything is working as it should and look for things that could be potential problems down the road. We’ll take care of those budding problems before they grow into expensive problems that leave you in the boiling heat of summer.

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

  • Repeatedly checking and switching your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your home.
  • Ensuring 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 prematurely.
