How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One thing that can wreak havoc on a warm summer’s day in Rapid City is a failing air conditioner. Your space is usually 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 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 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 appointment performed by the team at Street Heating and Cooling is your first and soundest line of defense against many problems that can cause an 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 potential 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:

  • Repeatedly checking and changing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your house.
  • Ensuring 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 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 prematurely.

Before things heat up this summer, contact Street Heating and Cooling to make sure your AC is prepped for the challenge! You’ll be happy you did.
