How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

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

A preventive AC maintenance appointment performed by the team at Kelley Mechanical is your first and strongest line of defense against many problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll ensure that everything is working as it should and monitor for things that could be possible problems later on. We’ll take care of those impending problems before they grow into costly problems that leave you in the boiling heat of summer.

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

  • Frequently checking and switching your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your home.
  • 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 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 than it should.

Before things heat up this summer, reach out to Kelley Mechanical to make sure your AC is primed for the challenge! You’ll be happy you did.
