How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One thing that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Marshalltown is a failing air conditioner. Your house is typically 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 vacation 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 stopping a failure and the avoidable air conditioning service appointment is to be proactive! Instead of an emergency air conditioning call, why not plan ahead and schedule preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance checkup performed by the team at Kapaun & Brown Inc. is your first and strongest line of defense against many problems that can end in AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll check that everything is running as it should and monitor for things that could be potential problems down the road. 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 tips you can do to help keep your air conditioner working as it should are:

  • Regularly checking and switching 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 block 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 Kapaun & Brown Inc. to make sure your AC is primed for the challenge! You’ll be happy you did.
