How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One thing that can ruin a warm summer’s day in South Beloit and Belvidere is a failing air conditioner. Your space 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 devastating situation. This condition calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got better 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 call, why not plan ahead and book preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance checkup performed by the pros at Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. is your first and greatest line of defense against a number of problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll check that everything is operating as it should and check for things that could be potential problems in a matter of time. We’ll take care of those budding problems before they grow into costly problems that leave you in the boiling heat of summer.

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

  • Frequently checking and switching your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your house.
  • Making sure your AC equipment isn’t clogged 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.
