How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One unpleasant surprise that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Wausau is a failing air conditioner. Your home is normally 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 avoid an air conditioner failure and take full advantage of your summer? The key to avoiding a failure and the avoidable air conditioning service appointment is to be proactive! Instead of an emergency air conditioning call, why not plan ahead and schedule preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance appointment performed by the experts at Gilray Heating and Cooling is your first and strongest line of defense against lots of problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll make sure that everything is running as it should and look for things that could be likely problems later on. We’ll take care of those potential problems before they grow into costlier 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 replacing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your house.
  • Making sure your AC equipment isn’t blocked 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 affect 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.
