How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One factor that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Rocky Mount is a failing air conditioner. Your space 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 situation 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 stopping a failure and the avoidable air conditioning service appointment is to be proactive! Instead of an emergency air conditioning call, why not plan ahead and arrange preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance tune-up performed by the team at Davis Heating & Air Conditioning 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 operating as it should and monitor for things that could be possible problems in a matter of time. We’ll take care of those impending 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 running as it should are:

  • Frequently checking and switching your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your space.
  • Confirming 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 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.
