How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One unpleasant surprise that can ruin a warm summer’s day in Columbus is a failing air conditioner. Your space is usually 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 miserable situation. This condition calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got better things to do with your vacation time than wait for your AC to get fixed. So, how can you avoid an air conditioner failure and take full advantage of your summer? The key to preventing a failure and the expected air conditioning service appointment is to be proactive! Instead of an emergency air conditioning service, why not plan ahead and arrange preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance tune-up performed by the team at Wolfe & Sons Heating and Cooling is your first and strongest line of defense against lots of problems that can end in AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll check that everything is working as it should and look for things that could be possible problems down the road. We’ll take care of those budding problems before they grow into costlier problems that leave you in the boiling heat of summer.

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

  • Regularly checking and changing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your space.
  • 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 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 earlier than it should.

Before things heat up this summer, reach out to Wolfe & Sons Heating and Cooling to make sure your AC is ready for the challenge! You’ll be glad you did.
