How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One unpleasant surprise that can wreck a warm summer’s day in Winnipeg is a failing air conditioner. Your home 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 devastating situation. This situation calls for an air conditioning service, and you’ve got more fun things to do with your summer days 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 avoiding a failure and the expected 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 tune-up performed by the pros at Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning is your first and strongest line of defense against many problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll check that everything is working as it should and look for things that could be likely problems in a matter of time. We’ll take care of those potential problems before they grow into costlier problems that leave you in the boiling heat of summer.

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

  • Regularly checking and changing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your space.
  • Making sure 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 earlier than it should.
