One unpleasant surprise that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Des Moines is a failing air conditioner. Your space 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 devastating situation. This condition calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more exciting 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 avoiding 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 team at Heartland Heating & Cooling 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 check that everything is working as it should and monitor for things that could be possible problems down the road. We’ll take care of those budding problems before they grow into costly 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:
- Regularly 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 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.
