How You Can Help Prevent AC Repair for the Rest of the Season
In other parts of the country, temperatures are starting to drop. But we’ve still got 90°+ weather ahead. Air conditioning season is still in full force, even with an end in sight. And when your air conditioner is working this hard to lower temperatures, it becomes more and more likely that your system will fail.
Here’s how you can help to prevent your air conditioner from breaking down in the middle of a busy cooling season.
Keeping Up on Maintenance
It’s so important that you do what you can to keep your air conditioner in good condition. Your central AC is an investment, and it deserves the attention recommended by most contractors to keep it running smoothly for longer. Here’s what you can do to help prevent a major problem.
- Clear the unit of debris – When there is debris blocking your outdoor AC compressor/condenser unit, it can keep heat from transferring to the air, which is how the AC cools your home! Remove any debris or objects surrounding this unit.
- Change the filter – A clogged air filter can do more than you think to affect the performance of your air conditioner. It may force the inside unit to freeze, and additional components may need repair if you don’t replace it monthly.
- Call in specialists when you notice a problem – We know this guide is about preventing AC repair, but if you neglect a small issue, it can get a lot worse. Prevent major AC issues by calling in specialists the moment your notice a problem, no matter how small.
Setting the Thermostat Properly
The fastest way to wear down your air conditioner is to set the temperature too low. The more you use your air conditioner, the sooner your air conditioner will fail for good. Find the warmest temperature everyone in the home can agree with for your air conditioning. We recommend 78°. Raise the temperature before you leave the home, and take full advantage of the advanced programming options on your programmable thermostat.
