How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One unpleasant surprise that can ruin a warm summer’s day in San Jose 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 condition calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more fun 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 stopping 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 book preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance checkup performed by the team at American HVAC Inc is your first and soundest line of defense against a number of problems that can end in AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll ensure that everything is working as it should and look 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 operating as it should are:

  • Frequently 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 prematurely.

Before things heat up this summer, reach out to American HVAC Inc to make sure your AC is primed for the challenge! You’ll be glad you did.
