How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One thing that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Erie is a failing air conditioner. Your house 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 sad situation. This condition calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more exciting 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 inevitable air conditioning service appointment is to be proactive! Instead of an emergency air conditioning service, why not plan ahead and arrange preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance tune-up performed by the pros at Patterson & Stirling Inc is your first and greatest line of defense against a number of problems that can cause an AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll check that everything is running as it should and monitor for things that could be potential problems later on. We’ll take care of those budding problems before they grow into expensive problems that leave you in the scorching heat of summer.

Some other tips you can do to help keep your air conditioner running 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 clogged 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 prematurely.

Before things heat up this summer, contact Patterson & Stirling Inc to make sure your AC is primed for the challenge! You’ll be glad you did.
