There are times when homeowners can be their own worst enemies. Whether it’s a job that was supposed to be somewhat basic that turned in to an animal or something as routine as forgetting to swap 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 variety of things that we don’t do that may possibly lead to AC repair.

While the goal is to elude these scenarios, we’ve covered 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 indicate that there is a problem 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 out-of-the-blue outage that turns into an emergency repair. It’s important to call and get a professional opinion before anything greater arises.

  2. Ignore 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 switching them regularly. A dirty air filter not only inhibits air flow, it makes it tougher for your air conditioner to do its job, making it less efficient and potentially raising your energy costs. Switching 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
    Similar 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 routine 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 protect against any potential for AC repair appointments. Sure, these are three of the most common ones encountered by Premium Air Services LLC in Tomball, but there are a number of other ways to avoid dealing with AC repair.
