How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One factor that can wreak havoc on a warm summer’s day in Carlsbad is a failing air conditioner. Your house 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 vacation 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 stopping 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 appointment performed by the pros at Banister's Heating & Air Conditioning Services is your first and soundest line of defense against lots of problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll ensure that everything is running as it should and look for things that could be possible problems down the road. We’ll take care of those potential 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 changing 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 in its life.
