How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One factor that can ruin a warm summer’s day in Pocatello is a failing air conditioner. Your home 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 miserable situation. This condition calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got better things to do with your 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 avoiding a failure and the expected air conditioning service appointment is to be proactive! Instead of an emergency air conditioning repair, why not plan ahead and book preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance checkup performed by the team at Vogts Heating & Air is your first and strongest line of defense against many problems that can cause an AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll ensure that everything is working as it should and look for things that could be potential problems in a matter of time. We’ll take care of those potential problems before they grow into expensive problems that leave you in the boiling heat of summer.

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

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