How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One factor that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Lawrence is a failing air conditioner. Your space is usually 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 sad situation. This situation calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more fun things to do with your 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 preventing a failure and the expected 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 checkup performed by the pros at Scott Temperature is your first and greatest line of defense against a number of problems that can cause an AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll check that everything is operating as it should and monitor for things that could be likely problems later on. We’ll take care of those budding problems before they grow into costlier problems that leave you in the scorching heat of summer.

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

  • Frequently checking and changing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your space.
  • 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 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 in its life.
