How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One thing that can wreak havoc on a warm summer’s day in Columbia is a failing air conditioner. Your home 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 exciting things to do with your time than wait for your AC to get fixed. So, how can you stop 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 repair, why not plan ahead and schedule preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance tune-up performed by the experts at Watts Electrical & Air Conditioning is your first and greatest line of defense against many problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll make sure that everything is working as it should and check for things that could be potential problems down the road. We’ll take care of those budding problems before they grow into costlier problems that leave you in the boiling heat of summer.

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

  • Repeatedly checking and switching your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your home.
  • Confirming your AC equipment isn’t blocked 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.
