How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One unpleasant surprise that can ruin a warm summer’s day in Lake Forest is a failing air conditioner. Your space 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 state 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 prevent an air conditioner failure and take full advantage of your summer? The key to preventing a failure and the inevitable 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 1st Choice Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. is your first and soundest line of defense against many problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll make sure that everything is operating 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 boiling 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 home.
  • Making sure 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.
