How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One factor that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Keokuk 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 miserable situation. This condition calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more exciting things to do with your summer days 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 expected air conditioning service appointment is to be proactive! Instead of an emergency air conditioning repair, why not plan ahead and schedule preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance checkup performed by the experts at WM J Kraus & Son is your first and strongest line of defense against lots of problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll make sure that everything is running 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 costlier problems that leave you in the scorching heat of summer.

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

  • Frequently checking and replacing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your home.
  • 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 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.

Before things heat up this summer, reach out to WM J Kraus & Son to make sure your AC is prepped for the challenge! You’ll be glad you did.
