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 appeared to be somewhat basic that turned in to an animal or something as simple as forgetting to change the air filter and now you need 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 could possibly lead to AC repair.

While the desire is to elude these scenarios, we’ve written about 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 arise.

    Whether it’s a rattling, clanking, rubbing or any other number of sounds, don’t just leave it be. These sounds could point out that there is a problem with your system. The longer these sounds happen, 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 a professional opinion before anything greater arises.

  2. Pay no attention to 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 swapping them regularly. A dirty air filter not only impacts air flow, it makes it a challenge for your air conditioner to do its job, making it less efficient and potentially raising your monthly costs. Swapping 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, scheduled 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 issues 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 seen by Smyth Air Conditioning Inc in Lake Worth, but there are plenty of other ways to avoid dealing with AC repair.
