Checking for AC Repair

3 Things Homeowners Don’t Do That Leads to AC Repair

At times homeowners can be their own worst enemies. Whether it’s a project that was supposed to be somewhat basic that turned in to a headache or something as normal as forgetting to change the air filter and now you require 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 may potentially lead to AC repair.

While the objective is to elude these circumstances, we’ve put together 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 through the summer months when it runs quite often, but that doesn’t mean you should ignore any out-of-place sounds or actions that happen.

    Whether it’s a rattling, clanking, rubbing or any other number of sounds, don’t just leave it be. These sounds could indicate 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 out-of-the-blue outage that turns into an emergency repair. It’s important to call and get a pro’s opinion before anything larger arises.

  2. Ignore your air filter
    Air filters are one of the simplest things to deal with as a homeowner, but often go unnoticed. However, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be changing them routinely. 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 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 Danco Heating & Cooling 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 crucial 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 ward off any potential for AC repair appointments. Sure, these are three of the most common ones encountered by Danco Heating & Cooling in Minocqua, but there are plenty of other ways to avoid dealing with AC repair.
