There are times when homeowners can be their own worst enemies. Whether it’s a project 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 require AC repair. It doesn’t take much to make things a lot tougher 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 could possibly lead to AC repair.
While the objective 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.
- Disregard uncommon actions from your air conditioner
It can be pretty easy to get used to hearing the hum of your air conditioner throughout the summer months when it runs quite often, but that doesn’t mean you should discount 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 last, the greater the chance that you may 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 a professional opinion before anything greater arises.
- Forget about your air filter
Air filters are one of the simplest things to deal with as a homeowner, but often go unnoticed. However, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be swapping 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 utility costs. Swapping your air filter is pretty simple and should be done every 1-3 months depending on your usage. Have questions? Feel free to call CNR Air Conditioning Inc and we’d be more than happy to help.
- Don’t schedule regular maintenance
Similar to an oil change on your vehicle, scheduled maintenance on your air conditioner is essential 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 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 ward off any potential for AC repair appointments. Sure, these are three of the most common ones seen by CNR Air Conditioning Inc in Naples, but there are plenty of other ways to avoid dealing with AC repair.
