How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One thing that can wreak havoc on a warm summer’s day in Saint Petersburg is a failing air conditioner. Your home is normally 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 devastating situation. This condition calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got better 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 service, why not plan ahead and schedule preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance checkup performed by the pros at Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc is your first and greatest line of defense against a number of problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll make sure that everything is operating as it should and check for things that could be potential problems down the road. We’ll take care of those potential 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 house.
  • Confirming 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 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.
