How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One unpleasant surprise that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Jefferson City is a failing air conditioner. Your home 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 sad situation. This state calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got better things to do with your time than wait for your AC to get fixed. So, how can you prevent an air conditioner failure and take full advantage of your summer? The key to preventing 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 arrange preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance checkup performed by the pros at Stieferman Heating Company Inc is your first and strongest 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 look for things that could be likely problems in a matter of time. We’ll take care of those impending problems before they grow into expensive 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:

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