Sometimes homeowners can be their own worst enemies. Whether it’s a job 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 tougher 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 may potentially lead to AC repair.

While the objective is to elude these scenarios, 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 unusual 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 quite 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 variety of sounds, don’t just ignore it. These sounds could point out that there is a problem with your system. The longer these sounds happen, the greater the chance that you might need to set up an AC repair appointment or worse, have an unplanned outage that turns into an emergency repair. It’s important to call and get a pro’s opinion before anything bigger arises.

  2. Forget about your air filter
    Air filters are one of the easiest 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 decreases 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. Swapping your air filter is pretty simple and should be done every 1-3 months depending on your usage. Have questions? Feel free to call Mighty Ducts 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 critical to ensuring that your system is running at its best. Of course, when you neglect your system by putting off scheduled 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 protect against any potential for AC repair appointments. Sure, these are three of the most common ones heard by Mighty Ducts in Orange, but there are plenty of other ways to avoid dealing with AC repair.
