Checking for AC Repair

3 Things Homeowners Dont Do That Leads to AC Repair

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 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 harder 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 desire is to avoid these circumstances, 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 strange 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 fairly often, but that doesn’t mean you should discount any out-of-place sounds or actions that arise.

    Whether it’s a rattling, clanking, rubbing or any other host of sounds, don’t just ignore it. These sounds could mean that there is an issue 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 fly under the radar. However, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be changing them routinely. 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 energy 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
    Similar 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 regular maintenance, your air conditioner can turn in to a liability 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 protect against any potential for AC repair appointments. Sure, these are three of the most common ones encountered by Polar Air & Heating Inc in Las Vegas, but there are a number of other ways to avoid dealing with AC repair.
