How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One unpleasant surprise that can ruin a warm summer’s day in Saint Petersburg is a failing air conditioner. Your house 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 condition calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more exciting things to do with your vacation time 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 avoiding a failure and the expected 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 team at Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc 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 check that everything is working as it should and check for things that could be likely problems down the road. We’ll take care of those budding problems before they grow into costly problems that leave you in the sweltering heat of summer.

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

  • Regularly checking and switching your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your space.
  • Ensuring 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.
