How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One factor that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Clackamas is a failing air conditioner. Your house 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 miserable situation. This situation calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more exciting things to do with your summer days 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 avoiding a failure and the avoidable 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 pros at Central Air Inc is your first and strongest line of defense against lots of problems that can end in AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll make sure that everything is running as it should and monitor for things that could be potential problems down the road. We’ll take care of those impending problems before they grow into costlier problems that leave you in the scorching heat of summer.

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

  • Repeatedly checking and switching your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your house.
  • Making sure 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 earlier in its life.

Before things heat up this summer, reach out to Central Air Inc to make sure your AC is primed for the challenge! You’ll be glad you did.
