How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One unpleasant surprise that can wreak havoc on a warm summer’s day in Gresham is a failing air conditioner. Your space is usually 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 fun things to do with your time 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 avoidable air conditioning service appointment is to be proactive! Instead of an emergency air conditioning call, why not plan ahead and book preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance checkup performed by the pros at Honke Heating & AC is your first and strongest line of defense against a number of problems that can end in AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll ensure that everything is operating as it should and monitor for things that could be possible 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 operating as it should are:

  • Regularly checking and switching your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your home.
  • Ensuring 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 in its life.
