How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

June 24, 2019

One thing that can wreak havoc on a warm summer’s day in Norco and St. Charles Parish is a failing air conditioner. Your house is normally 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 devastating situation. This situation 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 avoidable air conditioning service appointment is to be proactive! Instead of an emergency air conditioning call, why not plan ahead and schedule preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance checkup performed by the pros at Mayeuxs AC & Heating is your first and strongest line of defense against lots of 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 down the road. We’ll take care of those impending problems before they grow into costly problems that leave you in the scorching heat of summer.

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

  • Regularly checking and replacing 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 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.
