How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One factor that can wreak havoc on a warm summer’s day in Bartlesville is a failing air conditioner. Your home 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 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 avoid an air conditioner failure and take full advantage of your summer? The key to avoiding a failure and the expected 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 appointment performed by the team at Farris Heating & Air is your first and strongest line of defense against many problems that can cause an AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll check that everything is operating as it should and monitor for things that could be possible problems later on. 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 running as it should are:

  • Frequently checking and replacing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your space.
  • Making sure 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 impact 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.
