How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One unpleasant surprise that can wreak havoc on a warm summer’s day in Hattiesburg is a failing air conditioner. Your home 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 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 prevent an air conditioner failure and take full advantage of your summer? The key to preventing a failure and the inevitable air conditioning service appointment is to be proactive! Instead of an emergency air conditioning repair, why not plan ahead and schedule preventive maintenance?

A preventive AC maintenance checkup performed by the pros at Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning is your first and strongest line of defense against many problems that can end in AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll check that everything is working as it should and monitor for things that could be likely problems later on. We’ll take care of those budding problems before they grow into costlier problems that leave you in the scorching heat of summer.

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

  • Regularly checking and changing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your home.
  • Confirming your AC equipment isn’t clogged 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.
