How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One factor that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Shelby is a failing air conditioner. Your home is usually 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 devastating situation. This situation calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got better things to do with your 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 expected air conditioning service appointment is to be proactive! Instead of an emergency air conditioning repair, why not plan ahead and book preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance tune-up performed by the pros at Hopper Heating and Air is your first and soundest line of defense against many problems that can end in AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll make sure that everything is running as it should and check for things that could be potential problems in a matter of time. 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 things you can do to help keep your air conditioner operating as it should are:

  • Repeatedly checking and changing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your home.
  • Confirming your AC equipment isn’t obstructed 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 prematurely.

Before things heat up this summer, reach out to Hopper Heating and Air to make sure your AC is prepped for the challenge! You’ll be glad you did.
