How to Keep Your Air Conditioner from Failing

One unpleasant surprise that can wreak havoc on a warm summer’s day in Williamsport is a failing air conditioner. Your home is normally the cool place you rest 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 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 preventing a failure and the expected 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 tune-up performed by the pros at Lycoming Heating Company is your first and strongest line of defense against a number of problems that can mean AC failure—and the resulting miserable summer days. We’ll ensure that everything is working as it should and monitor for things that could be potential problems later on. We’ll take care of those budding problems before they grow into costlier problems that leave you in the sweltering heat of summer.

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

  • Repeatedly checking and replacing your air filter to keep air flowing efficiently through your space.
  • 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 earlier than it should.

Before things heat up this summer, call Lycoming Heating Company to make sure your AC is ready for the challenge! You’ll be glad you did.
