How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One thing that can ruin a warm summer’s day in Colorado Springs is a failing air conditioner. Your home is usually 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 sad situation. This state calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more exciting 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 preventing 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 arrange preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance checkup performed by the experts at Mitchell Heating 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 running as it should and monitor for things that could be potential problems in a matter of time. We’ll take care of those impending problems before they grow into expensive problems that leave you in the sweltering heat of summer.

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

  • Frequently checking and switching your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your house.
  • 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.
