How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One unpleasant surprise that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Cedar Rapids 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 devastating situation. This condition calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more fun things to do with your vacation 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 inevitable air conditioning service appointment is to be proactive! Instead of an emergency air conditioning service, why not plan ahead and arrange preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance checkup performed by the experts at Ilten's Incorporated is your first and greatest line of defense against a number of problems that can end in AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll make sure that everything is operating as it should and look for things that could be potential problems in a matter of time. We’ll take care of those budding problems before they grow into costly problems that leave you in the scorching heat of summer.

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

  • Regularly checking and replacing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your home.
  • 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 block 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.
