Checking for AC Repair

3 Things Homeowners Dont Do That Leads to AC Repair

At times homeowners can be their own worst enemies. Whether it’s a job that had the appearance of being somewhat basic that turned in to an animal or something as routine as forgetting to switch the air filter and now you face AC repair. It doesn’t take much to make things a lot more difficult than they need to be. Of course heating and cooling isn’t exempt from this either, as there are a number of things that we don’t do that might possibly lead to AC repair.

While the desire is to elude these scenarios, we’ve covered three of the most common things homeowners do related to their air conditioners prior to making the call for AC repair.

  1. Disregard unusual actions from your air conditioner
    It can be pretty easy to get used to hearing the hum of your air conditioner through the summer months when it runs quite often, but that doesn’t mean you should disregard any out-of-place sounds or actions that occur.

    Whether it’s a rattling, clanking, rubbing or any other host of sounds, don’t just let it be. These sounds could mean that there is an issue with your system. The longer these sounds go on, the greater the chance that you might need to set up an AC repair appointment or worse, have an unplanned outage that turns into an emergency repair. It’s important to call and get an expert opinion before anything larger arises.

  2. Ignore your air filter
    Air filters are one of the most basic things to deal with as a homeowner, but often fly under the radar. However, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be swapping them regularly. A dirty air filter not only decreases air flow, it makes it more difficult for your air conditioner to do its job, making it less efficient and potentially raising your monthly costs. Changing your air filter is pretty simple and should be done every 1-3 months depending on your usage. Have questions?

  3. Don’t schedule regular maintenance
    Comparable to an oil change on your vehicle, routine maintenance on your air conditioner is critical to ensuring that your system is working at its best. Of course, when you neglect your system by putting off scheduled maintenance, your air conditioner can turn in to a liability if it develops larger concerns that require AC repair.

Regardless of the age of your air conditioner, there are things that can be done to defend against any potential for AC repair appointments. Sure, these are three of the most common ones heard by Climate Control Systems in Hickory, but there are numerous other ways to avoid dealing with AC repair.
