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 a beast or something as routine as forgetting to switch 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 goal is to get around 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 strange 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 fairly often, but that doesn’t mean you should ignore any out-of-place sounds or actions that occur.

    Whether it’s a rattling, clanking, rubbing or any other number of sounds, don’t just ignore it. These sounds could indicate that there is an issue 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 larger arises.

  2. Forget about 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 changing them routinely. A dirty air filter not only inhibits air flow, it makes it more difficult for your air conditioner to do its job, making it less efficient and potentially raising your monthly 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 JonAire Inc and we’d be more than happy to help.

  3. Don’t schedule regular maintenance
    Similar to an oil change on your vehicle, routine 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 concerns 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 heard by JonAire Inc in Las Vegas, but there are numerous other ways to avoid dealing with AC repair.
