Sometimes homeowners can be their own worst enemies. Whether it’s a task that had the appearance of being 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 potentially lead to AC repair.

While the desire is to elude these situations, 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 pretty easy to get used to hearing the hum of your air conditioner throughout the summer months when it runs regularly, 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 something wrong with your system. The longer these sounds go on, the greater the chance that you might 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 an expert opinion before anything larger arises.

  2. Ignore your air filter
    Air filters are one of the most basic things to deal with as a homeowner, but often go without being changed. However, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be switching them on a schedule. A dirty air filter not only impacts air flow, it makes it tougher 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 reach out to Osceola Air, LLC and we’d be more than happy to help.

  3. Don’t schedule regular maintenance
    Like to an oil change on your vehicle, scheduled maintenance on your air conditioner is critical to ensuring that your system is running at its best. Of course, when you neglect your system by putting off regular maintenance, your air conditioner can turn in to a ticking time bomb if it develops larger problems 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 encountered by Osceola Air, LLC in Osceola County, but there are numerous other ways to avoid dealing with AC repair.
