How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One thing that can ruin a warm summer’s day in Houston 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 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 avoiding 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 book preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance checkup performed by the pros at Marcos AC & Heating is your first and greatest line of defense against many problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll check that everything is working 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 expensive problems that leave you in the sweltering heat of summer.

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

  • Regularly checking and switching your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your space.
  • 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 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 in its life.
