How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One thing that can wreak havoc on a warm summer’s day in Oxford is a failing air conditioner. Your space is usually the cool place you rest 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 state 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 preventing 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 book preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance checkup performed by the team at Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. is your first and strongest line of defense against a number of problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll make sure that everything is operating as it should and check for things that could be potential problems later on. We’ll take care of those impending problems before they grow into costlier problems that leave you in the boiling heat of summer.

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

  • Frequently checking and switching your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your house.
  • 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 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.

Before things heat up this summer, contact Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. to make sure your AC is prepped for the challenge! You’ll be glad you did.
