How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One factor that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Buellton is a failing air conditioner. Your space is typically 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 devastating situation. This state 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 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 book preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance tune-up performed by the team at Allstar Heating & Air Conditioning is your first and greatest line of defense against lots of problems that can end in AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll ensure 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 budding problems before they grow into costlier problems that leave you in the sweltering heat of summer.

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

  • Regularly 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 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.
