How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One unpleasant surprise that can ruin a warm summer’s day in Waterloo is a failing air conditioner. Your home is typically 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 miserable situation. This condition calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more fun things to do with your summer days 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 stopping a failure and the avoidable air conditioning service appointment is to be proactive! Instead of an emergency air conditioning service, why not plan ahead and schedule preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance appointment performed by the pros at Cronin-Verheul Heating & A/C Ltd is your first and strongest 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 running as it should and check for things that could be potential problems in a matter of time. We’ll take care of those budding problems before they grow into costly problems that leave you in the scorching heat of summer.

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

  • Repeatedly checking and replacing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your house.
  • 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 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 than it should.
