How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One thing that can wreak havoc on a warm summer’s day in Delray Beach 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 situation calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more fun things to do with your summer days 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 avoidable air conditioning service appointment is to be proactive! Instead of an emergency air conditioning service, why not plan ahead and arrange preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance tune-up performed by the team at Kilbourne Heating & AC is your first and soundest line of defense against many 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 potential problems in a matter of time. We’ll take care of those potential problems before they grow into costly problems that leave you in the scorching heat of summer.

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

  • Repeatedly checking and replacing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your space.
  • Confirming 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.
