At times 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 switch the air filter and now you face 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 may potentially lead to AC repair.

While the goal is to avoid these situations, 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 strange 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 quite often, but that doesn’t mean you should discount any out-of-place sounds or actions that happen.

    Whether it’s a rattling, clanking, rubbing or any other variety of sounds, don’t just ignore it. These sounds could mean that there is something wrong with your system. The longer these sounds happen, 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 a pro’s opinion before anything greater 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 switching them routinely. 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. Switching your air filter is pretty simple and should be done every 1-3 months depending on your usage. Have questions? Feel free to call Speedy Air Conditioning and we’d be more than happy to help.

  3. Don’t schedule regular maintenance
    Similar to an oil change on your vehicle, scheduled maintenance on your air conditioner is crucial 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 liability 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 Speedy Air Conditioning in Naples, but there are plenty of other ways to avoid dealing with AC repair.
