How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One unpleasant surprise that can wreak havoc on a warm summer’s day in Des Moines 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 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 call, why not plan ahead and schedule preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance appointment performed by the pros at Kohles & Bach Heating & Cooling is your first and greatest line of defense against many problems that can end in AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll check that everything is running as it should and check for things that could be likely problems later on. We’ll take care of those potential problems before they grow into expensive problems that leave you in the sweltering heat of summer.

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

  • Repeatedly checking and replacing 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 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.
