There are times when 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 change 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 variety of things that we don’t do that might eventually lead to AC repair.

While the desire is to avoid 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 quite often, 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 mean that there is an issue with your system. The longer these sounds go on, the greater the chance that you may 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 professional opinion before anything bigger arises.

  2. Pay no attention to your air filter
    Air filters are one of the easiest 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 inhibits air flow, it makes it a challenge 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 C&C Refrigeration Inc. and we’d be more than happy to help.

  3. Don’t schedule regular maintenance
    Like to an oil change on your vehicle, regular maintenance on your air conditioner is critical 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 ticking time bomb 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 C&C Refrigeration Inc. in Waxahachie, but there are numerous other ways to avoid dealing with AC repair.
