3 Ways to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

While we would love to tell you that there are 3 ways to completely prevent problems from developing with your air conditioning system, this just isn’t possible. Make no mistake about it. You are going to need professional air conditioning repairs at some point. When you do, you want to schedule your AC repair in Glendale, CA with a member of our team. That way, you can count on a job well done.

Now, what we can promise in this post is that taking these precautionary measures will help to keep any air conditioning repairs that you do need as few and far between as possible—not to mention as minor. Will they eliminate them entirely? No, but nothing will. Just remember this. The better that you take care of your air conditioner, the better that it is going to take care of you.

Change Your Air Filter Regularly

There are actually a couple of good reasons why you’ll want to change your air filter regularly. First of all, it helps to boost energy efficiency. The less energy that your system has to use to force cooled air through your home, the better. However, it also helps to prevent operational problems.

The harder that your system works to force cooled air throughout your home, the more wear and tear it is going to incur. The more wear and tear that your system faces, the more likely it becomes that your system will run into the types of issues requiring professional repairs. And when you get into issues like short cycling or frozen coils caused by bad airflow, that only becomes more likely.

Take “Small” Problems Seriously

How do you avoid major air conditioning repairs? By scheduling service when small problems start to develop. What are “small problems”? Well, some homeowners may ignore issues such as increased operating costs, louder than usual operational sounds, etc.

Those issues may not seem serious to you, but they really are your system telling you that something is not right. Early intervention is the next best thing after preventing problems to begin with. Let us know if you think that your air conditioner is trying to tell you something, even if you’re not 100% certain of what it is.

Schedule Routine AC Maintenance

This is the big one. If you want to get the best performance possible from your air conditioner, meaning the most efficient, most effective, and most reliable performance possible, then air conditioning maintenance is an absolute must. And no, routine AC maintenance is not the type of service that you can handle on your own.

Yes, you can change your air filter itself. A full AC tune-up requires much more than that, though. You need your system’s coils cleaned. You need moving parts lubricated. You need power levels checked, and electrical components tested. Long story short—you need our technicians on the job!

With the help of the pros on our team, you’ll be able to enjoy the most reliable performance possible throughout the entire cooling season.
