There are times when homeowners can be their own worst enemies. Whether it’s a job that appeared to be somewhat basic that turned in to a headache or something as normal as forgetting to swap the air filter and now you need 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 number of things that we don’t do that may potentially lead to AC repair.

While the desire 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.

  1. Disregard strange 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 fairly often, 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 let it be. These sounds could mean 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 unplanned outage that turns into an emergency repair. It’s important to call and get a professional opinion before anything bigger 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 changing them on a schedule. A dirty air filter not only inhibits 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. 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
    Like to an oil change on your vehicle, scheduled maintenance on your air conditioner is essential to ensuring that your system is running 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 protect against any potential for AC repair appointments. Sure, these are three of the most common ones heard by Total Comfort Solutions in Kennesaw and surrounding areas, but there are plenty of other ways to avoid dealing with AC repair.
