How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One unpleasant surprise that can ruin a warm summer’s day in Cedar Rapids is a failing air conditioner. Your house is typically 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 devastating situation. This condition calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more exciting 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 stopping a failure and the inevitable 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 tune-up performed by the team at Ilten's Incorporated is your first and greatest line of defense against many problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll ensure that everything is running as it should and look for things that could be possible problems down the road. We’ll take care of those budding problems before they grow into costly problems that leave you in the boiling heat of summer.

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

  • Frequently 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 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 prematurely.

Before things heat up this summer, call Ilten's Incorporated to make sure your AC is prepped for the challenge! You’ll be pleased you did.
