3 Things Homeowners Don’t Do That Leads to AC Repair08/05/2015Sometimes homeowners can be their own worst enemies. Whether it’s a task that had the appearance of being somewhat basic that turned in to a headache or something as routine as forgetting to change the air filter and now you require 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 variety of things that we don’t do that might potentially lead to AC repair. While the objective is to avoid these circumstances, we’ve put together three of the most common things homeowners do related to their air conditioners prior to making the call for AC repair. Disregard strange actions from your air conditioner It can be pretty 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 discount any out-of-place sounds or actions that arise. Whether it’s a rattling, clanking, rubbing or any other host of sounds, don’t just let it be. These sounds could point out that there is something wrong with your system. The longer these sounds last, the greater the chance that you could need to set up an AC repair appointment or worse, have an unscheduled outage that turns into an emergency repair. It’s important to call and get an expert opinion before anything larger arises. Ignore your air filter Air filters are one of the most basic things to deal with as a homeowner, but often go without being changed. However, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be changing them routinely. A dirty air filter not only impacts air flow, it makes it tougher 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?
