How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One thing that can wreak havoc on a warm summer’s day in Franklin Lakes is a failing air conditioner. Your house 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 condition calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more fun 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 stopping 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 book preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance checkup performed by the team at Total Comfort is your first and strongest line of defense against many problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll make sure that everything is working as it should and monitor for things that could be likely problems down the road. We’ll take care of those potential problems before they grow into expensive problems that leave you in the boiling heat of summer.

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

  • Regularly checking and switching your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your house.
  • 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 than it should.

Before things heat up this summer, call Total Comfort to make sure your AC is ready for the challenge! You’ll be happy you did.
