How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One unpleasant surprise that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Manassas is a failing air conditioner. Your house is typically 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 devastating situation. This situation calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got better things to do with your summer days 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 avoidable air conditioning service appointment is to be proactive! Instead of an emergency air conditioning call, why not plan ahead and book preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance tune-up performed by the team at Air-Right Energy Design, Inc. is your first and greatest line of defense against a number of problems that can end in AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll ensure that everything is operating as it should and monitor for things that could be possible problems in a matter of time. We’ll take care of those budding problems before they grow into costlier problems that leave you in the sweltering heat of summer.

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

  • Frequently checking and changing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your home.
  • Ensuring 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 affect 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, contact Air-Right Energy Design, Inc. to make sure your AC is primed for the challenge! You’ll be pleased you did.
