How to Prevent A/C Breakdowns

On a hot summer day, there are few things worse than a broken A/C. Here are a few tips that will help you prevent air conditioning system breakdowns this summer.

Prevent A/C Breakdowns:

  • Schedule Regular Maintenance – All home appliances need regular maintenance in order to run efficiently. Homeowners should schedule annual HVAC tune-ups to keep their system running smoothly all system long. Since your air conditioner will be working more efficiently, you may even find yourself with a lower energy bill!
  • Change Your A/C Filters – Your air conditioning system has filters inside that catch dirt, dust and debris. These filters help ensure that the air that circulates throughout your home is clean and cool. However, when these filters become clogged, they can cause your system to overwork. Change your A/C filters when you notice that they become dirty.
  • Clean the Area Around Your Outdoor Condenser – Plants and debris around your outdoor condenser can keep your air conditioning system from working efficiently. Anything that causes your air conditioning system to work harder than it needs to can eventually lead to a breakdown. Make sure that the area around your condenser is clear!
