How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One factor that can wreak havoc on a warm summer’s day in Dayton is a failing air conditioner. Your house is normally 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 miserable situation. This situation 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 prevent an air conditioner failure and take full advantage of your summer? The key to avoiding a failure and the expected air conditioning service appointment is to be proactive! Instead of an emergency air conditioning call, why not plan ahead and arrange preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance checkup performed by the pros at Jent Mechanical LLC is your first and greatest line of defense against a number of problems that can cause an 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 likely problems down the road. We’ll take care of those potential problems before they grow into costly problems that leave you in the sweltering heat of summer.

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

  • Repeatedly checking and switching your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your house.
  • Making sure 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 prematurely.
