How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One unpleasant surprise that can wreck a warm summer’s day in the Rio Grande Valley is a failing air conditioner. Your home is typically the cool place you relax 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 fun things to do with your time than wait for your AC to get fixed. So, how can you avoid 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 schedule preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance tune-up performed by the experts at Cytech Heating & Cooling L.C. 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 make sure that everything is working as it should and monitor for things that could be likely 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 sweltering heat of summer.

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

  • Repeatedly checking and replacing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your house.
  • Making sure 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 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 in its life.
