There are times when homeowners can be their own worst enemies. Whether it’s a task that was supposed to be somewhat basic that turned in to an animal or something as routine as forgetting to swap 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 may possibly lead to AC repair.

While the desire is to avoid these circumstances, 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 awfully easy to get used to hearing the hum of your air conditioner during the summer months when it runs regularly, but that doesn’t mean you should ignore any out-of-place sounds or actions that occur.

    Whether it’s a rattling, clanking, rubbing or any other variety of sounds, don’t just ignore it. These sounds could point out that there is an issue with your system. The longer these sounds happen, the greater the chance that you may need to set up an AC repair appointment or worse, have an out-of-the-blue outage that turns into an emergency repair. It’s important to call and get a pro’s opinion before anything greater arises.

  2. Ignore your air filter
    Air filters are one of the simplest things to deal with as a homeowner, but often fly under the radar. However, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be changing them regularly. A dirty air filter not only inhibits air flow, it makes it more difficult for your air conditioner to do its job, making it less efficient and potentially raising your energy costs. Switching 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
    Similar to an oil change on your vehicle, routine maintenance on your air conditioner is crucial to ensuring that your system is operating at its best. Of course, when you neglect your system by putting off regular maintenance, your air conditioner can turn in to a headache if it develops larger problems that require AC repair.

Regardless of the age of your air conditioner, there are things that can be done to protect against any potential for AC repair appointments. Sure, these are three of the most common ones encountered by Premier HVAC Services LLC in Greencastle, but there are a number of other ways to avoid dealing with AC repair.
