How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One unpleasant surprise that can ruin a warm summer’s day in Front Royal is a failing air conditioner. Your space is normally the cool place you rest 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 situation 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 stop 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 arrange preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance tune-up performed by the experts at Dave's Diversified Services is your first and greatest line of defense against many problems that can cause an AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll check that everything is running as it should and look for things that could be potential problems later on. We’ll take care of those impending problems before they grow into expensive problems that leave you in the boiling heat of summer.

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

  • Repeatedly checking and switching your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your house.
  • 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 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 earlier in its life.

Before things heat up this summer, reach out to Dave's Diversified Services to make sure your AC is primed for the challenge! You’ll be happy you did. Call the experts at 540-369-3971 to arrange a ongoing air conditioning service to keep your AC in optimal shape and to keep your home cool during the summer months.
