One factor that can wreak havoc on a warm summer’s day in Laurel is a failing air conditioner. Your house is typically the cool place you relax 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 situation calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more exciting things to do with your time 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 inevitable air conditioning service appointment is to be proactive! Instead of an emergency air conditioning service, why not plan ahead and schedule preventive maintenance?
A preventive AC maintenance tune-up performed by the team at H&C Heating and Cooling is your first and greatest line of defense against many problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll check that everything is running as it should and check for things that could be potential problems down the road. We’ll take care of those potential problems before they grow into costlier problems that leave you in the scorching heat of summer.
Some other ideas you can do to help keep your air conditioner working as it should are:
- Frequently checking and changing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your house.
- Confirming 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 block 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.
