How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One unpleasant surprise that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Lawrence is a failing air conditioner. Your home is typically 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 devastating situation. This situation 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 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 call, why not plan ahead and arrange preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance appointment performed by the experts at Scott Temperature is your first and greatest line of defense against lots of problems that can end in AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll ensure that everything is working as it should and monitor for things that could be potential problems later on. We’ll take care of those impending problems before they grow into costly 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:

  • Repeatedly checking and replacing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your house.
  • 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 block 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.
