Sometimes homeowners can be their own worst enemies. Whether it’s a task 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 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 number of things that we don’t do that might possibly lead to AC repair.

While the objective 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 uncommon actions from your air conditioner
    It can be awfully 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 disregard any out-of-place sounds or actions that happen.

    Whether it’s a rattling, clanking, rubbing or any other host of sounds, don’t just let it be. These sounds could point out that there is something wrong with your system. The longer these sounds happen, the greater the chance that you may 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. Forget about 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 regularly. A dirty air filter not only impacts air flow, it makes it a challenge for your air conditioner to do its job, making it less efficient and potentially raising your energy costs. Changing your air filter is pretty simple and should be done every 1-3 months depending on your usage. Have questions? Feel free to call Boyles Mechanical LLC 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 essential to ensuring that your system is operating at its best. Of course, when you neglect your system by putting off regular 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 heard by Boyles Mechanical LLC in Marietta, but there are numerous other ways to avoid dealing with AC repair.
