For everyone else that wants to be a little more informed about what’s actually going on in their AC when it starts to struggle, this blog post is for you! Let’s talk about five important points to consider when dealing with air conditioning repairs in Plano, TX.
#1: Replace Your Air Filter!
You wouldn’t believe how many problems with air conditioners we’ve encountered could be traced to the air filter. Homeowners just don’t remember to clean out their air filters. We understand why, there are much more important things to life than remembering to clean your air filter. However, by missing this vital chore, you’re actively contributing to the decreased lifespan, inefficiency, and problems that your AC will encounter. So, do yourself a favor and change out the filter!
#2: Invest in IAQ Solutions
Sometimes an air conditioner might get run into the ground, especially when it’s being used as heavily as the AC systems in Plano are. If you’re dealing with a lot of dust, debris, or even humidity, then your air conditioner is likely struggling to cool your home due to the influx of these contaminants or poor humidity control. Why not invest in an indoor air quality system to help your air conditioner out and alleviate part of the burden?
#3: Keep Things Relatively Clean
Keeping things clean can help you notice when there’s a problem with your AC. If the outdoor cabinet is bombarded with dirt, pebbles, and outdoor gear, then you’re going to have trouble locating any problems that are developing.
#4: Unblock Your Vents
Your air conditioner needs to use all of the vents in your home. After all, that’s what it was designed to do. If you start blocking certain vents to siphon the cooled air into your room or a specific room of your home, you’re actively hurting your AC’s ability to function properly. It’s designed to cool your whole home, and if that isn’t reflected on the thermostat, then it’s going to run poorly.
#5: Think About Replacement
Look, we know that replacement isn’t the easiest topic to approach. But your air conditioner shouldn’t be running into so many problems. If you’re constantly reading our blog and calling us every year, then there’s a good chance that your AC is just on its way out. It’s just the natural order of things.
Don’t worry! We’ve got your back. Let’s discuss your options going forward and get you cooled down at an affordable price.
